Visiting service members participate in a full schedule of vocational and recreational activities, visits to local hospitals and schools and community service projects.
Public tours of visiting Navy and Coast Guard vessels will be offered Tuesday, May 2 through Saturday, May 6. Due to Port security restrictions, advance registration is required.
Broward Navy Days, Inc. was informed on April 12 that the U.S. Navy has been forced to reassign four ships originally planned to visit Port Everglades during Fleet Week 2017. The destroyer, two cruisers and submarine have been cancelled due to the global security situation and fiscal constraints. Broward Navy Days, Inc. supports this decision because our military's foremost mission is to keep our nation safe and secure. All tours aboard those ships were forced to be cancelled and, unfortunately, the remaining ships cannot increase capacity. We regret the situation and offer our apologies for any inconvenience.
The community will welcome our visiting Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen on Monday, May 1 at Esplanade Park on the Fort Lauderdale Riverwalk. The public is invited.
