Description

VIP Captain's Tour

This is a unique opportunity to explore the Bowfin Submarine with a former Commanding Officer of a U.S. Navy Submarine.   This will give you an opportunity to learn the inner workings of the submarine, and gain a sense of Submarine life in our active Navy.

The USS Bowfin Submarine, the Submarine Memorial and the Submarine Museum are located adjacent to the Pearl Harbor visitors center.  The USS Bowfin tour can be combined with any site at Pearl Harbor, and is most commonly combined with the USS Arizona memorial.   If you are planning to incorporate the USS Bowfin on your tour, then add an hour to your given time.   Due to construction on the USS Arizona, total charge for a Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin tour will be charge for three hours.   The total length of tour will be four hours.   

The USS Bowfin Submarine was commissioned in 1942 and served 9 patrols in the Pacific before being decommissioned, transferred and transformed into a museum in 1979.   The USS Bowfin is known as the "Pearl Harbor Avenger," and is one of only 15 remaining submarines from WWII.   The Bowfin sunk 44 enemy ships during WWII including a bus.   You will be able to walk through the submarine and see what life was like for 80 crew members and their officers.  

The Submarine Memorial is located a stone throw away from the USS Bowfin.   The memorial honors 52 Submarines and 3500 Officers and Crewmen lost during WWII in the Pacific.  Take a moment to read one of the placards to find out what happened on their final patrol.   A total of 48 submarines of the 52 were lost due to hostile fire.
