The SS Red Oak Victory – Arrive Curious! Leave in Awe!
The SS Red Oak Victory is the last surviving ship built in the Kaiser Richmond Shipyards during World War II. Today, the Red Oak Victory remains a monument to the men and women who worked in war-related industries as part of the World War II Home Front. In 1998, the ship was saved from the Naval Reserve Fleet in Suisun Bay and since then has become one of the SF Bay Area’s unique and innovative cultural venues.
The SS Red Oak Victory is one of the hidden gems in the region: The views of the SF Bay Area are second to none. From a great dance floor to working cranes, a theater, the Captain’s quarters, the bridge, a working 1944 Morse tube radio you actually can receive text messages or emails from, and a fascinating engine room – she is full of interesting surprises and awe-inspiring history.
The Red Oak Victory is also the closest you can come to a pair of nesting ospreys that return here from Spring to Fall to raise their young. And you’ll find the Bay Area’s one and only Diesel-powered galley where we prepare our popular pancake breakfasts once a month between April and October. Still want more? – End your visit across the pier tasting great wines at the cool Riggers Loft Wine Company.
