You can view this vessel fro free but to climb on board you must pay for a guided tour. I would recommend the tour.

Definitely worth a visit. For a group of 8 people, it is only $16. The lady doing the commenting was very knowledgeable and friendly. It was very interesting to go down to the lower level and explore a bit (just mind your head).
