Deck Crew & Firemen (Fire water tenders): Both deck & engineering (firemen) crew members are always needed for excursions during the regular season. Experience is preferred but not required.

Event Coordinators: During the regular season there are a number of Public Excursions that require someone who can provide pre-planning and day-of event management and coordination.

Docents: Our docents provide event assistance, tours of the ship and are current with historical information about the Virginia V to share with passengers during an excursion or dockside event.

Office Help: If you have regularly available week-day hours, possess basic computer skills, can help with filing, data entry, answering phones, etc., we certainly could use your help!
