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.

We were visiting for a retirement ceremony and spent most of the time at the museum but also bought gas. A pretty location.

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.
