This is a bus tour around the naval base in a bus with commentary. You don't get very close to the ships and picture taking is restricted. You get to learn quite a bit about the USN, and how they look after and commemorate their own. Really quite a fascinating place. Admission fee quite reasonable.

This is the mother of all naval shipyards and worth a tour! The views of the water are also fabulous.

It has been forty years since I had served on a US destroyer, and seeing the new fleet, and the USS Theodore Roosevelt CV-71, which had just returned from a deployment, was a treat.

Saw some pretty cool stuff during this tour. Guides were very helpful, and made the tour interesting and fun. Is a little difficult to get to if you are not driving.

Have never been to a Naval post prior to this, but it was well worth it. The base is wonderfully maintained and the tour was informative and fun. Such rich history here for sure. The only thing I disliked was we could not photograph the ships as dock. I understand why, but would have still loved to get some up close pics of the Aircraft Carriers.
