My 12 year old son and I visited here last month. He loves submarines and ships plus WWII history. Seeing it up close and personal help make the past come alive for him and gave him a deep respect for an older generation. I think seeing that the naval crew slept over live torpedoes on the submarine was eye-opening for... More

My wife and I, along with my son and daughter in law visited the park. As you go into the gate, go ahead and buy the tour package. It is well worth it! The submarine and destroyer escort offer so much visual history, that you must do it. If you go through the sub, please remember that the boat had... More

I understand that they are restoring those through donations. But there is very little information. If you are on the skinny side then going through the submarine is Ok, if you are on the larger side I would not advise it. The destroyer is Ok. Just not a very good experience.

It is a good place to go see the history and walk in the park. You can go and watch the ships and ferry go by.

We toured the battleship and submarine with our young kids. They loved being able to explore all the rooms and see the guns. The park has put plenty of plaques up with good information as you go through, and the AC in the submarine was a very welcome touch.

On the water, beautiful green areas, but signs all over the park telling you to watch for snakes, quite off-putting for me. Does have a fabulous play area for kids, off the grass.

We visited Seawolf Park today. I'll start out by saying that the place is a little bit of a mess on the park side. I"m not sure what happened to the building that looks like it used to be amazing...now it's all fenced off and boarded up. That being said...the rest is great. After paying a nominal parking fee, we... More

Went to the park so my grandson could tour the ships and see the ocean on all sides. He had such fun on the ships and watching people fishing.
