2016 BIW Story Tour Schedule Coming Soon!

What goes into the construction of the world's most advanced ships? How did BIW gain the reputation of "Bath Built is Best Built?"

Learn the answers to those questions and more as a current or former employee of Bath Iron Works serves as your guide, providing the inside story on Maine's proud shipyard.

On this exclusive tour you'll 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.

Members $25; nonmembers $30; children 17 and under $15

For an even deeper BIW experience, combine this tour with our Shipyards and Lighthouses Cruise for the best water views of BIW and Zumwalt DDG 1000. Please note, due to security restrictions, the tour is not permitted to enter the shipyard.
