Tours of the M/V Brigitte Bardot - Saturday, May 26th, to Monday, May 28th 10am - 4pm.

Take a Tour of the Brigitte Bardot!

This is an opportunity to visit our fastest long-range patrol vessel. The Brigitte Bardot has undertaken Sea Shepherd campaigns in the waters of Antarctica, in the Caribbean, in the Faroe Islands, in the Mediterranean and in the South Pacific.

Originally named the GOJIRA, we had to change the name due to legal pressure from the Japanese company that controls the Gojira (Godzilla) brand. So we converted the beast to the beauty and renamed it after long time Sea Shepherd supporter Brigitte Bardot.

Come out and meet some of our veteran crewmembers, and check out the ship before it leaves on its next campaign.

Our local onshore volunteers will be in attendance to give out information on our current campaigns and latest updates. We'll also have official Sea Shepherd merchandise available for purchase.

May 28th ship tours will be from 10am to 2pm.

Don't miss this opportunity to see her, and bring the kids - they will love it!

WHAT: Ship Tours
WHEN: Sat, May 12th, and Sunday, May 13th 2018 - 10AM to 4PM
WHERE: 1014 North Ocean Drive.
Hollywood, Florida
