The US Navy will be visiting Port Jefferson for the first time ever and will be giving tours of the ships starting tomorrow, August 9th! Their trip to Long Island from their homebase, in Annapolis, Maryland, is a part of the Summer Navigation and Seamanship Training Block where 50 Midshipmen, made up of both men and women, take their commanding officers. They began their voyage on Monday and plan to reach land today, August 8th, with their five sailboats near the Port Jefferson Ferry at the Town of Brookhaven dock.
The US Naval Academy will begin their tours tomorrow, August 9th, from 10 am to 3 pm and on Saturday, August 10th, from 12 pm to 4 pm. The tours are comprised of Midshipmen explaining their duties on board and their life in the Naval Academy on top of showing you around their ship. Be sure to check out this awesome opportunity!
