We went during the week(Thursday), it wasn't crowded. We got the audio your with our pass, I would recommend having the audio. You can go all through the bowfin. This is a MUST see at Pearl Harbor ! I came before, 6 years ago and didn't see the Bowfin, so happy I saw it this time !

Good thing I don't have a problem with tight spaces! If you do, you're going to hat this experience. I could not have imagined spending months crammed inside a submarine like this with up to 30 other men. It just goes to show you the lengths that these great men went to in order to win the war. I never... More

This was just a blast to visit. Not only is there a huge historical significance for this visit, being allowed to walk all the way through the submarine end to end was incredible. Be prepared for doors you have to step over or, if you're adventurous, grab the handle and go feet first. Lots you can touch and get very... More

The park gives you a view into what it was like to be on a sub during WWII. The torpedo displays all over the park are very interesting and show how much effort went into the property.

What a great tour this is, everything is gleaming, fresh, and just as it was when it was in service, not to be missed.

We visited this attraction as a part of an organized day tour of Pearl Harbor. It was worth the time, & we did the audio tour. Interesting to see the inside of the sub & get a feel for what living inside it for a long time period was like.

My wife and I did an interesting tour to Pearl Harbour while visiting Honolulu, Hawaii. We discovered that admission to entering the USS Bowfin submarine is not included in the tour ticket prices, unlike a visit to the Intrepid Sea Museum at New York harbour where ticket prices include a tour of the USS Growler submarine. It is however interesting... More
