Visiting Jack London Square in Oakland, California

Here's a closer look at the Eureka airship. It was really moving fast, so I could get only a couple of quick photographs!

On this trip, it's wearing the Farmers Insurance advertising "skin." Normally, the Eureka displays its own advertising for Airship Ventures.

The Eureka is a zeppelin rather than a blimp although, unlike the Hindenburg, it uses helium rather than hydrogen.

The Eureka is actually a passenger vessel, and it offers a variety of tours including trips around the San Francisco Bay Area and along the California coast to Los Angeles. The crew even serves meals and, if you can afford the extra price, you can fly the zeppelin!

Groups will sometimes hire the zeppelin for customized tours for their members.
