AAA Editor Notes

USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, next to the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center off SR 99, commemorates those who served in the “silent service.” The park centerpiece is the 1,500-ton USS Bowfin, also known as the “Pearl Harbor Avenger.” Launched in 1942, this Balao-class submarine could remain submerged for 24 hours. A museum traces the history of submarine design. A theater in the park shows film footage from World War II and submarine-related videos. Other highlights include a periscope and conning tower viewing facility, a Japanese one-man “suicide submarine” from World War II and a memorial to the 52 U.S. submarines and more than 3,500 crewmen lost during this world war. Tickets are sold at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center.
Museum only $6; $3 (ages 4-12). Museum and submarine $12; $8 (ages 60+, Hawai‘i residents and military with ID); $5 (ages 4-12). Under age 4 are not permitted on the Bowfin but are allowed in the museum and theater. Combination tickets with other Pearl Harbor sites may be purchased online in advance at www.pearlharborhistoricsites.org/deals.
Hours: Daily 7-5. Last tour of the submarine begins 30 minutes before closing. Allow 1 hour minimum.
