Where are we going today?

The Queen Mary is one of the world's most famous ships! Her famous days were spent as a troopship in WWII, and her golden days were in the 1950s! BUT...it also has a nickname as the "haunted ship"....are you keen to find out why!

Well, The Queen Mary Tours is your answer! The whole family can get an up close and personal look at this amazing ship, with a number of facsinating tours!

These tours will allow you to explore the ship from stern to bow, inside and out, and hear all the fun stories and history!

The tours range in topics and themes, so you really will find something for the whole family! Are you feeling...brave....then how about taking a tour as the sun goes down!

The Twilight Historical Tour gives you a deeper insight into the ships past - and is the evening version of the Glory Days Historical Tour. Full of anecdotes and true stories!

Or perhaps you want to dine with the spirits! You can enjoy first class dining before being guided by a trained paranormal guide, and explore the ships most notorious paranormal hotspots! Maybe you will come across one of the ships permanent residents!

If you would rather keep the tours during the day, the Scorpion Submarine is always a favorite of the kids! You can descend into the "Cold War Warrior" - once forbidden! You can explore the torpedo rooms, the cramped crews quarters, as well as all the nooks and crannies! It's a great way to experience what life would have been like on a Russian submarine, and it really will feel like you're back in time because it's completely authentic and unchanged! 

Haunted encounters, Captain's demonstrations, history tours, audio tours...The Queen Mary Tours have so many to choose from, you might find yourself taking them all on!

All aboard!

    LOVE this tour of the infamous "Scorpion" Russian submarine. You can tour it at your own pace, checking out the cramped quarters, even sitting down at the officers table. There is some great history here, so bring your camera and enjoy taking pictures of old school uber complicated guages, levers and dials. And check out how small that bathroom was - wow!

    Pro tip - the submarine is tight inside, and requires you to be pretty flexible to crawl through some spaces. If you've got some physical challenges, be aware that some parts of the sub can prove...Read More

    I got the scorpion submarine tours as part of a package on the day that the bacon festival was going on.

    This is a self-guided tour so you can go at your own pace and it is tight in there so a guided tour would be tricky lol! First you start off in the scorpion building and show them your ticket and then you walk out of the building, down the bridge and onto the sub. Then you walk to the far end of the sub and enter. You walk through the whole thing and pop back up on the back. Its a pretty good system and I only saw one guy moving backwards through...Read More

    Last time I was in the Long Beach area was back in October 2000. I'd gone through Scorpion B-427 the summer before and had an absolutely dynamic time just exploring her from one end to the other. They do put stairs in there for people to get through the hatches, so it's not wheelchair accessible. I discovered that the "regular" bunks the Soviet sailors used are as long as I am tall, and my shoulders go from one edge to the other.

    First advertising I saw for the sub was back in 1998, and it was billed as "Queen Mary and Scorpion: Stealth and...Read More

You walk through the whole thing and pop back up on the back. Its a pretty good system and I only saw one guy moving backwards through the sub to go check out the torpedo room again.

There are seven departments and each time you crawl through one of the watertight doors or through one of the hatches, a Russian voice starts speaking to you and telling you what's going on in the room that you a currently in. I took a bunch of photos and checked it out for about 20 minutes and emerged in the back and then rushed off for the World War 2 History tour aboard the Queen Mary.

First advertising I saw for the sub was back in 1998, and it was billed as "Queen Mary and Scorpion: Stealth and Wealth Side By Side". I can't really say enough about the Scorpion... you really do have to see her to understand her. I plan to return to Long Beach sometime soon to take another tour of Queen Mary and Scorpion B-427 until my heart's content.
