The public shiprider program offers a day cruise during the Seafair Fleet Week Parade of Ships aboard a United States Navy or Coast Guard vessel.
Seafair 2013 ship visits have been cancelled because of budget shortfalls due to sequestration.
Cancelling domestic ship visits is one of many steps the Navy is taking to ensure resources are in place to prioritize and support forces operating forward now, those training to relieve them, and continuing maintenance of the Navy's fleet and aircraft.
The Navy believes there is value in demonstrating the capabilities of our ships and aircraft, thus inspiring future generations of Sailors and Marines. The Navy intends to continue Fleet Weeks in the future as the budget situation permits.
