Nauticus Wants You!

Was learning new things and adding some fun to your life on this year's resolution list? Take the plunge and become a volunteer tour guide on the Battleship Wisconsin! Nauticus is looking for outgoing history buffs to lead Topside Tours, which take visitors below decks to explore areas of the ship previously closed to the public.

Since beginning in October of 2010, the tours have proven so popular that more times have been added for 2012, along with brand new tours exploring different themes. Tour guides will receive thorough training, and receive a variety of benefits, plus gain valuable work experience at a friendly, busy tourist attraction. Principle responsibilities include presenting accurate historical information about the Battleship Wisconsin to a variety of audiences along several different tour routes.

Guides must also be able to handle extensive walking and ladder climbing, as well as be able to stand for prolonged periods of time. Previous experience in leading tours, theater or public speaking is helpful but not required. Interested? Please call the volunteer office at (757) 664-1043 or email kenneth.stuart@norfolk.gov for more information.
