First off this place is off the beaten path down at the end of a long dead end road. If you enjoy military hardware and world war II history this is a must stop. Go early in the day if you can cause it get pretty toasty down below deck and even top side with all the metal heating up.... More

If you are a WWII history buff, you'll enjoy yourself. Since opening in 1971, there has been major changes at Seawolf Park. The USS Cavalla (the submarine) was half underwater when I first visited it as a kid, but now it is completely above ground. Some sections have been closed off over the years for safety reasons, but the majority... More

We visited on a Monday during the day last week of summer for most. In which was great we were only a few that were there. The submarine was great definately a hands on and was very interesting to the conditions that our country men had to endure. I brought my 13 year grandson. The battleship was a disappointment to...

We had great time touring ship & the submarine. It was pretty hot day but we still enjoyed looking inside both ships.

We where impressed. Submarine was a blast, a little tight for our big guy but he made it through & loved it. The ship was good too. We would have liked to go all the way to the bottom, but was blocked off.

We have come here twice. Last year with just my husband and kids. This year my In-laws came with us. It was a little in rough for my mother in law to get through the sub as she has had a knee replacement and has short legs so it took her a minute to get through each door way, you... More

We had a wonderful time touring the ship and submarine! It was very cool to see exactly what the military men experienced on board. The memorials on the grounds were very inspiring as well. We went with our 8 year old daughter and 4 year old twin boys, and we all loved it! Great value too!

This was my family's first visit to sea wolf park because I always thought it would be boring, but it turned out to be a highlight of our trip. The ship and sub are very interesting & air conditioned as you tour them. On the ship and sub, expect steep stairs/ ladders and small doorways. The park has many picnic... More
