Reviewed December 11, 2012

This past June we were able to tour the Naval base on our trip to the Opsail 2012. We enjoyed the tour so much. It was wonderful seeing the big ships that were in port and see all that's involved at a base this size. We were blessed with a wonderful guide who balanced great humor with a lot of knowledge and history making the tour a very enjoyable experience.

The base handled the vehicle search and document issue quickly and efficently. Sailor on the Enterprise that did the tours were very friendly and informed. Wish we could have gone into the engineering spaces, but I understand the hassle with issuing Dosimetry being a ex-Navy Nuc.

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.
