Time’s run­ning out for peo­ple who’d like to tour a naval ship dur­ing Fort Laud­erdale’s Fleet Week cel­e­bra­tion April 29 to May 6.

The vis­it­ing sub­ma­rine is com­pletely booked and all the week­end ship tours have been filled since reg­is­tra­tion opened on Thurs­day.

But there’s still week­day tour space avail­able on the vis­it­ing ships:

■ USS New York, an am­phibi­ous trans­port dock and lead ship for this year’s event.

■ USS Far­ragut, a de­stroyer.

■ USS Hue City, a guided mis­sile cruiser.

■ USS Mil­wau­kee, a lit­toral com­bat ship.

■ USCGC Wil­liam Flores, a fast re­sponse cut­ter.

Free pub­lic tours of the ships at Port Ever­glades are still avail­able for April

30 and May 1-3. Peo­ple can sign up for a tour at Broward­Navy­DaysInc.org.

The Broward Navy Days event is spon­sored this year by Ed Morse Au­to­mo­tive Group. The ships are not hand­i­capped ac­ces­si­ble and not avail­able for chil­dren un­der the age of 5.

Ad­vance reg­is­tra­tion is needed be­cause of port se­cu­rity pro­ce­dures. The free tick­ets can only be used by the reg­is­tered per­son; they can­not be given to some­one else.
