There is a museum included with the sub tour, which definitely makes it worth the purchase. The sub was tiny for a sub, especially after visiting the Mighty Mo! If the park is about to close and you still haven't done this, I wouldn't return...More

Better that I thought it would be. A fascinating view of the inner workings of a military submarine. Well worth taking the audio tour to get all the insight needed to appreciate the features of the sub. Give yourself a good 90 mins to go...More

Located right near the boats that go to the Arizona. It was a very good tour that you do by yourself. You should get the headphone set because that will explain a lot of what you see. Will take about 30-60min to complete. Be sure...More

The USS Bowfin was an incredible experience. I have never been on a submarine until this and it was very interesting to see what the life is like on a vessel like this.

Did this as part of the full day tour. Fantastic access to the entire submarine which shows what the seamen had to endure to help protect our freedom. Dont know how they did it

We had a passport for the combined sites and I’m glad we did. We may have missed it otherwise. We came back a second day (addition $10 each) because we had a strong recommendation from a friend to see it. So glad we did. It...More

It's a really quick tour but it was cool to see how submariners live. Probably don't need much more than an hour for the tour.

Great experience, very uplifting. This is only one of 4 attraction and you need a whole day plus to get around all 4. You can catch a trolley for $25 for the day and get a guided tour on the way or a bus for...More

I don't think so. I recall waiting for the Arizona film to start and then going out to the site but I think for the submarine you just go whenever.
