I was on the USS Tautog (SSN-639) in the 80's. It was an odd feeling seeing the sail for the first time in almost 30 years. The park is on a point that offers nice views. It was a pleasant walk around the area.

Kimberly W., First, thank you for taking the time to visit us. Your review is important to us and we strive to improve our operations every day. The manager of Seawolf Park is an amazingly proactive person and works hard at having staff patrol for issues like those you describe. As the new Exec Dir of the American Undersea Warfare Center (the two WWII ships on display), I am also dedicated to preserving our heritage, yet providing an updated experience for our customers. We hope you will come back and give the Seawolf Park experience another chance and bring a fishing pole!
