Entry and exit is by a 7.5 m (25 ft.) ramp with a 13.5° slope. Upper Decks tours present all 3 stories of this century-old 105 m (350 ft) long ship, from the vantage point of both passengers and crew: there is a 13 step staircase between each floor. The Combined tour adds the Engine Room tour: access is via a 26 step staircase (with a landing at mid-point) to the hold.
Visitors are not permitted to bring pets onto the ship or the adjacent parking pad. Pets are permitted, on a leash, with an Adult attendant, on the remainder our grounds, while others in the same visitor group visit the ship. There are three park-like (grassed and treed) areas with picnic benches suitable for this purpose. We do not provide water, drinking bowls, or waste containers: please cleanup after your pet.
