Parking was hard to come by if you aren’t staying in the area, but the tour was amazing! Lots of insight and engagement from the crew and learned a lot of neat facts. There’s no need for a jacket unless it’s cool out and pictures taken prior to boarding will cost about $50 if you want to keep the physical/digital copies.

The Navy and Rangers were wonderful! Some of the people visiting were being disrespectful and the Ranger explained to them that it's a grave site. The Ranger was very nice about explaining. I wouldn't have been. This is a lot of walking but we'll worth it.

Beautiful boat ride out to the sub. Friendly crew. Saw several turtles and tons of beautiful fish. Cool experience.

Very moving experience. I learned so much about the history of that historic day.

super informative. seen a lot of the island by using this app!
