LA Fleet Week® provides an opportunity for the local community and region to learn more about the mission and operations of the U.S. Sea Services.
During LA Fleet Week® 2017, the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marines, U.S. Coast Guard, and Royal Canadian Navy will offer a limited number of ship tours that provide you with a glimpse into the day-to-day life aboard an active military vessel, and the opportunity to see military equipment and demonstrations up close, and in some cases, even hands-on.
