“nice but disappointing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

First time on a submarine but they advertise the use of an audio tour but there was no audio equipment for us that day and instead they gave us a written paper which was not really practical. Life in a submarine must have been really challenging for its inhabitants whether in peace or way. Looking at all the submariners plaques one can actually picture the heroics and demise of those rave warriors.

“Tight Quarters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Very informational and interesting, but not for the claustrophobic. A good deal if you book several attractions together. We packaged the Bowfin with the Missouri and the Arizona. Get the audio guide for the tour.

“Great way to kill time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We had a while to wait for a Arizona Memorial Tour, so my family took this tour. The Bowfin is the "Avenger of Pearl Harbor," having been commissioned 1 year after the attacks. Cool little tour to see the inner workings of a WW2 sub. Kids loved it and my wife and I enjoyed ourselves too!
