This is my 4th time on board the Yorktown, but it's the first time by night. This ship is a big airplane carrier ship anchored permanently in Mount Pleasant. The tour started at 8 pm next to the ticket office. We were given some general history about the ship, when it was commissioned, its deployment and missions, when it was decommissioned. Some of the information included the number of casualties during WWII or other events. Since ghosts are supposed to be the spirits of dead persons, our tour guide called Don took us around the various parts of the ship where those accidents and sightings happened, telling us more information and showing us pictures of the sightings possibly related to those sailors who perished. He also gave us a electromagnetic meter to find some ghost presence.
Overall, the tour is well organized and lets you visit the deck, the hangar, the bottom where the generator is, the sleep quarters, the medical facilities, the kitchen, etc. It is also a great opportunity to take pictures without crowds. It ended just before 10 pm. Nice additional thing, we did not have to pay for the parking.
