This is a really neat addition. You can go inside the submarine and see what it looks like. If you are a big guy like me, take your time. The doorways are tiny. Really neat experience.

This tour is not for those who have walking issues because the steps are steep and the passage way inside is very narrow. I can't imagine serving on this amazing vessel during WWII. You have to like tight & small spaces. There are bunks next...More

This tour has an audio tour included, it is very well done. Can accomplish the entire thing easily in 30-45 minutes. My boys really loved going under deck and seeing the sleeping cots on top of the torpedoes!

It is hard to believe that human beings lived and worked in this environment. Sleeping with torpedos. Yikes

It was a privilege to be able to walk on the Bowfin. So much history was there to be learned. A life lesson as well.

Need to be able to go up & down ladders to below deck. Very interesting inside with kitchen, staterooms, torpedo exhibits. Kids loved it!

My Dad doesn't talk about his service in the military much. While exploring the Bowfin, it spurred memories that he told us about. It was a choice experience.

Very well set up. Staff friendly. It was very interesting to see inside the sub and listen to the free audio guide. It was hot inside and some people may find it difficult to manouvre through the small door openings. But it is a submarine...More

The Bowfin itself is just a self-guided walkthrough. It really depends when you go/how busy it is. We went during off-season and it took us about 20-30 minutes.
