Docent Tours

Midway offers groups a unique once-in-a-lifetime experience with a private one-hour tour led by one of Midway’s Docents. See the ship like never before!

Our Docent staff is 100% comprised of Midway volunteers, therefore times and days are limited and non-negotiable.  Once a tour is requested, the Docent assigned to lead the group will select the areas that will be toured based on the size of the group and space availability. Following the Docent-led tour, guests are free to stay onboard and continue with the guided audio tour narrated by Midway sailors to enhance your visit even further. Also, enjoy the “Voices of Midway” film detailing the events of the Battle of Midway!
