I often use Groupon to save on vacation experiences. When I saw that the American Victory ship was next to the Florida National Aquarium I new we could squeeze in a visit! So I purchased a Groupon for $5 for two adult admissions. We left our car in the aquarium lot after our visit and walked next door to the ship.
The Victory is a fully functional WWII ship. The ship is 455 feet long and was launched in May 1945 and spent its time carrying cargo to Europe and then to South Vietnam.
You take a self guided tour through the ship…
And you are free to explore at your own pace or craziness…
The crew cabins and kitchen are shown as if in use…
The SS American Victory is open for tours Sun / Mon from noon to 5. Tue – Sat from 10 to 5pm. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children 4-12 and $5 for veterans.
