‪ero un italiano in cerca di nuove cose da vedere... l?ufficio per le visite era chiuso...ma il signore che lo gestisce mi ha aperto lo stesso... mi ha raccontato tutta la storia a riguardo e, solo per me.... mi ha fatto visitare tutta la nave, esperienza bellissima.‬

‪Frankly, touring the Potomac was a lot more interesting than I though it was going to be. I'll credit our guide, Bud Beal, who was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. It was surprising to see how few creature comforts this vessel was equipped with. FDR certainly put up with a lot more inconveniences than you would expect of a President.‬

‪We were incredibly lucky with the weather - clear, sunny skies, light breeze. The water was calm even further into the Bay. A preview film in the adjacent office describes the ship's history from it's days as FDR's floating White House to it's current and completely refurbished incarnation. Volunteer docents obviously love their jobs. The narrative during the 2 hour cruise includes boat history as well as that of the surrounding area. The PA system covers the ship perfectly so you can hear well no matter where you are. After leaving the busy Port of Oakland, the captain takes you under the new section of the Bay Bridge, around Angel Island and Alcatraz before heading back to the Jack London Square berth. This was a wonderful trip, but not suitable for wheelchairs (despite FDR's reliance on a wheelchair) and highly questionable for walkers.‬

‪Once used by FDR as a presidential yacht, this boat has lots of history associated with it (including a visit from the King and Queen of the UK). We visited when an actual trip around the Bay was on offer, which was fun.

It's worth a visit if a trip is available or if you are in the vicinity (Jack London Square). Otherwise, I wouldn't make a special trip to see it.‬

‪I remember when this oversized yacht was on stilts in Port of Oakland's dry dock, having just been rescued from an ignominious chapter of it's history (in the clutches of drug runners) waiting for it's restoration as the floating White House of the FDR administration before and during WWII. My experience was during America's Cup races in S.F. bay in 2013, so the overall grandeur colors any objectivity here.
A bay cruise as a smallish group or even as an individual would be optimal. The sense of history is palpable, so much, if not all of the original hardware being retained. The elevator made to accommodate Roosevelt's wheelchair is still in place, though I don't think a ride is an option. There could be a no more unique way to take in the S.F. bay and it's surroundings.
I guess the bottom line is that if it was good enough for Churchill, Stalin and FDR it should be good enough for most anybody.‬

‪The boat is a bit run down and not much to see, unless you can imagine the President working from it.‬

‪Moored at Jack London Square right next to the Bay Ferry, this former presidential yacht has a lot of history. Try to grab one of the docent led tours to really appreciate the ship. Who knew that Elvis Presley once owned it? Sit where FDR sat on deck.

The fifteen minute introductory video and the small museum is your starting point before touring the ship. We spent about an hour and a half there and recommend it to other history buffs!‬

‪Today my husband and I were thrilled by the 1.5 hour, history filled visit we had at the USS Potomac at the Port of Oakland. The forecast was for a rainy day,
so an indoor activity was in order. We only had a 90 minute window for an adventure near our AirBNB. After seeing this outing on a top 15 list of things to do, I called and found out that due to the rain, the tours were cancelled. When the gentleman I was speaking to heard we were visiting from Maryland, he said to come on over, they’d open the USS Potomac for us for an inside tour, and we could also watch a video about FDR and the history of this presidential yacht.

Are we ever glad we did! The video was immensely informative. It provided background knowledge about the Roosevelt presidency that we didn’t remember from History 101. Then came the tour! Bud, a veteran of The Korean War, was a charming guide and fountain of knowledge. The depth of my background on nautical topics is so shallow that I often asked for clarifications. The best part for me was that he loved being peppered with these questions!

FDR’s presidential yacht is not fancy... in fact it was very plainly appointed. The vessel was recommissioned for a U.S. President who understood the times during which he served; while people were on bread lines and without jobs, it is assumed that FDR did not want the country to spend resources to decorate the yacht in an opulent manner. However, it was used as a floating White House and thus was involved in some very historically important events. It would be lovely to take the 3 hour bridge cruise on this yacht when we next return to Oakland. I can’t wait! ‬

‪The USS Potomac is a wonderfully restored vessel that is a real life historical vessel. We have been out on it a number of times and the volunteer staff are always happy to share their knowledge of the ship.‬
