The USS Bowlin and it's adjacent museum is part of the Pearl Harbor exhibit and will give you a "Hands On" feeling of how submarine life was in the period. If you purchase the $65 package you are able to enter the submarine and tour...More

A nice self guided audio tour of the "Revenge of Pearl Harbor" The museum next to the submarine is extremely detailed and informative. Well worth a visit.

They have done a good job telling the story! It was worth my time. Submarines had stations that detailed their history. This is an excellent stop for folks who love nautical history.

First time on a submarine and a really interesting place as you move around it and consider how submariners would have felt trapped in there with all hell going on around them. Well worth a visit.

This is a good self tour of a submarine. Must be able to climb and step over pipes, etc. Has ladders, big steps because of port holes and has a lot of information on audio tour that comes with ticket.

I guess not too many ordinary tourists have been on a submarine. Int he respect that is a pretty exciting site. Very interesting to see how little space the crew has onboard of a contraption like this. The whole interior is very steampunk. But you...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.
