Back for 2015: our popular Bath Iron Works Story Trolley Tour! Hear about the history of this famous shipyard and learn how the most advanced ships in the world are constructed. From the 1937 America’s Cup defender Ranger to the Zumwalt-class guided missile destroyer DDG 1000, BIW has always been a leader in building the most advanced ships afloat.
Your tour begins with an introductory video that takes you behind the scenes to detail the building process and features the employees who take great pride in constructing the Navy’s most advanced warships. You will then board the trolley for a rolling tour through Bath, past the BIW yard where your guide will fill you in on some of the most interesting tidbits of history that occured in the yard and explain just what it is you are viewing, highlighting key elements that can be seen in the shipyard.
Make your reservations now, this tour is often a sell-out!
