PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - The Pensacola-based Coast Guard cutter Cypress is decked out for Halloween.
The crew of the 225-foot ship went all out in decorating the vessel as a haunted ship. The ship will be open for tours Saturday night.
Last year, more than 2,200 people visited the ship during the Halloween tours.
The Pensacola News Journal reports that the tours are free, but the crew is encouraging visitors to bring cans of non-perishable food to donate to a local food pantry.
The ship features a giant spider climbing up the hull, a grim reaper on the deck and knife-carrying clowns in the narrow halls.
