A number of our SEAL fleet vehicles are equipped with a manual lift that can accommodate a common wheelchair as defined in CFR 49 Parts 27, 37, and 38 or ambulatory accommodations. We are happy to provide this service.
We request that you give us as much notice as possible as to your arrival date and the date & time you’d like to take the tour (24 hours advance notice preferred.)
This will assure that a properly equipped vehicle will be made available for your use.
Please arrive early, no less than 30 minutes prior to your departure time, so that we can accomplish the loading process smoothly and safely.
As always, collapsible wheelchairs are permitted on our SEALs and our CASTmembers are willing and able to assist with the loading.
