It was interesting as a visitor from the UK to visit on a US submarine and compare with the couple of UK subs I had been on. The Pampanito is obviously well cared for and a well loved vessel (as she should be). Tour allowed...More
The USS Pampanito is another Maritime gem to see in this Marine City. It is larger than I expected - however how the crew managed to function in the cramped operational and accommodation areas is a feat of human endurance. Remember to visit the exhibition...More
I visited the USS Pampanito only due to arriving hours early for my Alcatraz visit. I hadn’t known it was in San Francisco and was pleasantly surprised. It cost me $20 to enter and as I visited off peak and before lunch it wasn’t busy....More
The sub is amazing and introduces you to living conditions endured by those who served to protect us. This is an audio tour and the tour is not recomended for those who are uncomfortable in tight spaces.
Had to kill an hour whilst waiting for family so decided to do the USS Pampanito tour for $20. This ww2 historical submarine is docked near fisherman’s wharf. You enter the sub via one end and enter out the other. The sub has been left...More
It was great to spend some time looking around this unspoiled,WW2 submarine. Just to get a feeling on what life was about on this vessels in wartime is an eye opener. The audio tour is vital, our only criticism was the badly behaved kids running...More
I usually don’t say much about discounts. They discount “active” military and usually I do not have an issue with it. Like any non-military officiated entity like say, Disney.
However, I’m a combat veteran. I’m not going to go into depth about me but I...More
If you are interested in history and in Naval warfare, you must stop and see the USS Pampanito. This hour long visit is conveniently located at Fisherman's Wharf and is well worth the stop. After paying your admission, make sure you obtain one of the...More
Granted, we didn't do the audio tour so I can't fully comment on that aspect...but it is a very enjoyable tour even without the audio portion...I felt my age getting thru those hatches, tho 🙄.... If I have a "beef", it's with the $20 entrance...More
Packed with family-friendly entertainment, quality hotels, and good food, there’s something for everyone at Fisherman’s Wharf. From street performers and historic cable cars to art galleries and museums, a postcard-worthy photo is available on every corner. Bring your appetite: seafood lovers will be rewarded with Dungeness crab and sourdough bread bowls, while Ghirardelli Square will satiate anyone’s sweet tooth
after a day at Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. Don't forget to say hello to the adorable sea lions that make this neighbourhood a true San Francisco treat.

This would be difficult for anybody physically challenged due to entrances that are tight and passagways that are narrow. Add to that the need to traverse through hatches to see the entirety of the submarine and the difficulty increases. Having said that, if you're not in a wheelchair I'd say give it a go. Only you know when to say, "Uncle."
