We enjoyed touring the submarine and the destroyer escort. I was particularly interested to see how the servicemen live aboard these vessels. Thank you for the sacrifice.

Very good, exceptional access to WWII naval vessels a 1944 Submarine, and a 1944 Destroyer escort. Lots of fun crawling through both. There were signs describing spaces, also there were audio tour spots, but I don't know if it was working. Here is a crucial piece of advice - IF YOUR GPS says TAKE FERRY - Don't do it. The... More

My husband and I went here on our day date recently . I've been here numerous times even as a child on school field trips. Never get bored. There is a charge to enter.... as there should be. Areas to have picnics... fishing and great views. The sub and ship are incredible. I love that it is self guided ...... More

I have spent many afternoons wade fishin' the bay at Seawolf park for flounder. Moderate success but always enjoyable. I have even caught them from the pier and other places in the park. Using live shrimp worked best even around the feet of fellow fishermen.

Easy to get to on Pelican Island. Sub is excellent shape. DE is very rough, but only other DE is in Albany NY. Also - don't forget to read the Historical Markets on the tip of the island about the immigration center from the 1920's and the concrete ship SS Selma sunk in the bay - you can see the... More

This place offers very easy fishing with views of ships and things for the kids to do such as climbing on old naval vessels.

This is a great place to visit and spend some time getting to know the interior of both the submarine and the ship itself. They are still in the restoration process, but since that is funded solely by donations and volunteers -- it's been a slow process. There is a fee to get into the park, and you also have... More
