  • Really enjoyed the guided tour of the USS Becuna! We learned so much more than we would have on a self guided tour. Our guide, Greg, was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions...

  • Awesome experience. You really get to climb under deck and see everything inside the submarine. The guide was very knowledgeable and made history feel alive with his authentic and fact-based retelling. Be aware of narrow pathways and tiny doors. We were given enough time to stroll around and take pictures. It’s a very memorable tour and I can’t wait to go there again. Very impressive! The museum ticket includes a tour on the ship. The submarine is an extra $10. Parking is $20. Totally worth it!
  • The guided tours of the Becuna are awesome. If you’re interested in subs at all, it’s a very cool visit. If you want to know anything about the boat you could ever ask, Greg is your man. Would recommend to anyone with a passing interest.
