It is ok for people suffering from claustrophobia? Well it is not as small as I have imagined. If you can withstand a lift ride/elevator ride, then probably it is pretty bearable. It is a pleasant trip down inside to see how the Navy spent...More

Amazingly restored and as you walk through it longer than it looks with so much detail. However, extremely cramped and low with a steady stream of people walking through it and no way of passing anyone if you get panicky, so if you are claustrophobic...More

This was our first stop when we arrived at Pearl Harbor. We went to the submarine museum and toured the sub before our tickets for the USS Arizona. In retrospect, I wish we hadn't spent at much time at the submarine. Not knowing how much...More

Great tour and museum. Very interesting, gives you access to much of the interior of the sub. The museum has many interesting exhibits.

Having never been on a Sub before this was great. Amazing to think of people serving on a vessel such as this.

I didn't think I would ever be able to see the inside of a submarine-enclosed space. It was a self-guided tour with headphones and amazing! Our service men lived and worked here and it was so interesting that we didn't even realize we had gone...More

It is amazing that so many men lived in such tiny quarters for months at a time and primarily underwater. Thank you for serving our country in such minimal surroundings. Made me appreciate your service even more.

This tour is not for really large people or anyone with a physical disability as it is quite confined. Also not great if you suffer claustrophobia as it's one way in and out. All in all a really interesting tour and you are given complimentary...More

Toured the Bowfin recently when visiting Pearl Harbour & was taken aback at how small & cramped it is inside considering over 80 men lived on board. Some even slept in the torpedo room on beds anchored on the walls above the torpedos. The audio...More
