Each 45-minute tour begins at our Visitor Center where one of our historical interpreters dressed in period attire will greet you and provide a brief history. After a short walk down to the pier, you’ll be welcomed aboard the ship by Captain John Paul Jones, who will serve as your guide as you explore the vessel’s two levels and hear the circumstances of Providence’s valiant fate. Captain Jones will share exciting stories from his time on Providence and invite guests into the cabin and the hold. Below decks, you will hear and see what daily life was like for the men and boys who served during the Revolutionary War.
We are committed to keeping you safe during your visit to Providence. Our staff and guides will wear masks; guests five years and older are required to wear a mask in the Visitor Center, Gift Shop, in the Captain’s Cabin and in the hold. We have provided hand sanitizer stations around the ship and Visitor Center. All touch surfaces are sanitized between each visiting group, and group sizes have been reduced to allow for social distancing.
We look forward to welcoming you aboard!
Seeing the ship and hearing about life below decks gives our visitors a vivid picture of what it was like aboard Providence when the tiny Continental fleet was up against the most powerful navy in the world.
