Group Experiences

Let Your Group Set Sail

What’s better than exploring your maritime connection? Helping others do the same! Whether you’re a teacher, professional tour operator, or group coordinator, we will work with you to create an experience that meets the needs of your group. 

We offer a wide range of group experiences for audiences of all ages. Visit us in person and discover fascinating stories of maritime history and culture in our Museum, or absorb the peace and tranquility of the great outdoors in our Park. We will also send a team member to your group’s location to provide an engaging presentation or hands-on program. Or connect with us virtually through a live, interactive program.
