Walk On Ferry From Seattle

The USS TURNER JOY is located on the Bremerton Boardwalk within an easy walk of the Seattle Ferry Terminal and the Harborside Convention Center. A Washington State Ferry serves the route from Downtown Seattle – Bremerton.

The ferry from Seattle takes about an hour. You’ll cross Puget Sound – go through Rich Passage – and arrive in Bremerton. Off the starboard beam you’ll see the USS TURNER JOY DD-951. Look for the Lone Sailor on the end of the Bremerton Marina Pier. Seattle-Bremerton Ferry Info.

Arriving By Boat?

Boaters check with the Bremerton Marina for docking options.



A Few Good Things to Know


As the USS TURNER JOY has been restored to her Vietnam War configuration, she is handicapped accessible on and in part of her main deck. The museum also keeps several wheelchairs on hand for the convenience of our guests while on the premises and these are available upon request.

Tour Length

Do allow approximately an hour to two hours for a tour of the USS TURNER JOY (DD-951). We stop selling tour tickets 30 minutes prior to closing time. When planning a trip aboard our ship, there are several things you should anticipate.

Dress Appropriately

Please wear flat-soled or rubberized-soled shoes. While the outdoor tour route is covered with a non-skid material, some parts can still be slippery, so be careful. Recomended dress is shorts, loose slacks or pants for everyone – and LAYERS – our ship can be cold! Do keep both hands free for 70º ladder climbing.

Walk-way & Ladder Safety

When going through a hatch, watch your head and feet! Door coamings and overheads are well marked, but remain somewhat different than shoreside entryways. Ladders can be steep. Those with fear of heights should consider before ascending/descending.

Children & Strollers

Please supervise your children. USS Turner Joy is safe and fun as long as young children are supervised. Strollers are impossible to use aboard ship.  They may be left outside the back door of the gift shop prior to boarding.


No smoking or vaping is allowed aboard ship.
