HMCS Ojibwa is the largest artifact of the Museum of Naval History in Port Burwell, Ontario. Ojibwa served from 1965 to 1998 through the dangers and challenges of the Cold War. Visitors can choose from a number of different tours ranging from the hour-long Submariner's Tour of the inside of the boat; The Fish Eye View Tour of the outside; the combo tour including both the inside and the outside; and our most intensive tour - the 3-hour Greater Depths Tour. All our tours are led by highly trained guides. If you are lucky, or sign up for the Greater Depths Tour, your guide will be a qualified submariner, ready to explain everything and tell takes of the Cold War. These award-winning tours are unique and well worth the visit.

Who better than people who actually served on the Ojibwa submarine? Loved hearing about their memories of each part of the ship, their fellow crew-mates, and many adventures around the world. I came away with a much greater appreciation for the endurance, humour, and ingenuity...More
