Ghost Fleet Cruise

Date: Saturday, February 26, 2022
Time: 9:30-11:30 AM and 12:30-2:30 PM
Price: $25/adults and $15/kids ages 6-12

This two-hour excursion, departing from the Blakeley Park dock, takes guests up the storied Tensaw River to discover the site where the famed “Ghost Fleet”—a naval reserve fleet of hundreds of vessels kept in readiness for service in the decades after WWII—were once moored. Along the way we explore the winding route of scenic and secluded McVay’s Lake, the man-made ship channel connecting the Tensaw with the Mobile River near Gravine Island, and the seldom-traveled Raft River.


As the last week in February is Arbor Week in Alabama, join us prior to the morning cruise, at 8:30, for a special tour of Blakeley's remarkable diversity of tree species led by noted local naturalist Fred Nation. Tour complimentary with cruise tickets or regular park admission.
