W stayed here after Christmas before New Years. The room and the staff were great. At this time of year there were very few people around. It was a great place to rest and relax.

Every aircraft ever used by the US Navy. Opportunity to see the Blue Angels airshow practice. One of the best, if not the best place to visit on the Gulf coast.

Returned to the base after 40 years. Some changes. There are no longer huge numbers of ships assigned to the area although it is home to Navy Aviation and the Blue Angels.

This place is amazing! Really cool aircraft and displays to look at. You can pay extra for a movie or to ride the simulators they have- we chose not to, there was plenty to see without it!

must use the back gate or also called the west gate. expect id checks to include random security checks as you might expect from all military bases. can make reservation to see the blues rehearse at the top, great photo ops.

You do not need a pass if you go to the correct gate. They will request ID there. That gate also takes you to the lighthouse. You must enter through the West gate off of Blue Angels Pkwy.
