Owner description: The oldest naval port in the United States that offers guided tours.

The tour lasted about 45 minutes and we were driven throughout the base on a bus. We felt the tour was definitely worthwhile. It was fun to see all the ships that were in port and to just get a feel of the size of the base. The tour guides did a very nice job.

A huge base with plenty of interesting things to see, especially the ships! I loved getting an up-close view of them. Like others cautioned though, it's best to visit during off hours; a result of it being the largest naval base is an even larger amount of traffic during the normal work week.

Great sight from the water. Close to Wards corner and main highways. It is its own city. Many who serve come back to retire here.

This place is a mess to try to get into during rush hours. Do not even try to get into the base during those times. Other then that go enjoy the biggest naval base in the world!
