Here are a few events marking this occasion:

  • Today at Noon, there will be a champagne toast as San Francisco’s fireboat, Phoenix, joins with other area ships, including the amphibious WWII-era “ducks” of Bay Quackers in a “Parade of Ships” along the waterfront of San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf. (sorry for the late notice -- SFist!)
  • Until 5 p.m. today, onboard tours are free to the public, including the engine room -- the ship's unique reciprocating engines were featured in Titanic.
  • On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the ship will be taken for a cruise around the Bay, $100 per person.
  • The Jeremiah O'Brien will be featured in an upcoming episode of the History Channel's new "Hero Ships" series, air dates to be determined.
