SS Jeremiah O'Brien

Built in 1943, SS Jeremiah O'Brien is a merchant ship that was part of the fleet of 6,000 boats that assaulted the beaches during the Normandy Landings.

During its time in service, its main function as a "Liberty Ship" was to distribute supplies to US and allied troops during the Second World War.

Nowadays, Jeremiah is the only operational survivor of the fleet which in its day was made up of 6,000 boats.

Visiting SS Jeremiah O'Brien

If you visit the ship you'll see the deck, the machine room, the command bridge and the cabins where the crew lived during the war.

The ship is well preserved and has a long history, but it has to be said that if you have already visited ships like those at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, the Jeremiah O'Brien may disappoint slightly.

If you have to choose, the SS Pampanito Submarine, also on Pier 45 of the Fisherman's Wharf is our favourite of the two ships.
