Forget the craziness of Mallory Square, and take your sunset pictures here! They limit the number of people they allow onboard, so you'll have plenty of room to sit, take photos, and have a drink. What a great surprise to discover this gem!

Very interesting, it was a lot of fun walking on and in the ship. You could just imagine how the soldiers lived and worked on the boat.
