- Things to Do
The Potomac is open for docent-led dockside tours most Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays year-around starting at 11:00 AM. The last tour departs our Visitor's Center at 2:30 PM. Some holidays are excluded. Call (510) 627-1215 during business hours before departing for Jack London Square to confirm that we are open the day you intend to arrive.
All tours begin in the Visitor's Center at 540 Water Street in Jack London Square, Oakland, CA.
Tours begin with a 15-minute video in the Visitor Center following by a 45 minute to 1 hour docent led tour of the ship. The video provides a glimpse of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s use of the Potomac, emphasizing the impact of his administration on the country, and the Potomac restoration story.
