What is it like to work and live on the most powerful warship ever built? 

Why is the Navy the World’s Finest Navy?  

Join us for an incredible opportunity to take a behind the scenes tour of CVN-76, the USS Ronald Regan. 

There will be two tours on Saturday March 8th, one beginning at 1pm and another at 2:30.  The tours are limited in size to 25 each (50 total for the day) so please respond as soon as possible to reserve your spot and indicate your time preference.

USS Ronald Regan (CVN-76) is a Nimitz-Class nuclear-powered Supercarrier in the service of the United States Navy.  As of May 2012 the ship is operationally part of Carrier Strike Group Nine and administratively under the command of Commander, Naval Air Forces Pacific/Commander, Naval Air Forces.  In January the Navy announced that the USS Ronald Reagan would replace the USS George Washington as the only forward deployed carrier at Yokosuka, Japan. This move will occur sometime in 2015.

Tour Logistics

The tour is geared toward leaders and professionals who are either UCLA Anderson or UCLA graduates.

The USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) will be moored at Pier KILO at Naval Air Station North Island on Coronado.  We will provide driving directions, maps, and parking instructions after the attendees have been confirmed.

Attendees must be parked and ready to begin the tour at least 20 minutes early.   The tour will last approximately 1.5 hours. 

Each guest must be independently mobile and be able to transit eight flights of steep ship board ladders without assistance.  Children and elderly personnel who can not climb steep stairs under their own power (infants, strollers, carriers, walking canes, wheelchairs) will not be allowed aboard.  This is for their safety as well as the safety of the sailors aboard the warship.  Additionally, guests should wear comfortable clothing and close-toes shoes to help reduce/prevent injury. 

**Smart phones and cameras are allowed but please refrain from taking photos without the expressed consent of the officer in charge of your tour group**
