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!

Lived on NAS in early 80s and lighthouse was not open. Was glad that I could finally get inside the lighthouse and keeper's house. Was definitely worth the $7 charge. Thank you to the folks that took on the job of cleaning it all up...More

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.
