“Chance to be on a Submarine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

Submarines by their nature are not handicap accessible, and are very cramped. Not for people who are afraid of enclosed places

“Close living quarters”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

Enjoyed walking through. Even after reading about it, we were a bit surprised at how little space there was. Can't imagine what time at sea would have been like.

“Awesome Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

Going to Pearl Harbor really hit home for me. My Grandfather served in the Navy during WWII, so seeing the USS Bowfin was great! You actually get to walk through the whole submarine and it was very informational.

“A must while at Pearl Harbor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

If you haven't had the chance to explore a submarine, here is your chance! The audio tour that comes along with it is free, but tends to take time and hold up the process. Beware, if you tend to be claustrophobic or anxious about crowds in tight spaces this is not the attraction for you!
