Better if the tall ship was there, great for kids but careful on the ladders!

I was disappointed the tall ship wasn't there (currently in maintenance in a dry dock), but the light ship/submarine/cutter tours were good. The submarine tour would've been much better if it had included the CONNING tower, but the boat was in good condition and my 3 year old LOVED it.

These are really big ships with a lot of history behind them if you use the water taxi they will give you coupons for the ships so check the water taxes before buying tickets.
very cool ships

USS Torsk is a submarine that looks so cool, but was closed so we just saw it from the outside and the Chesapeke too. The temps were frigid about 9 degrees so we walked around quickly. Will definitely return in better weather to explore more

Really enjoyed the history of the ships. The light ship was great and informative. I enjoyed the submarine the best. I really respect how they lived and fought for our country While on board a sub.
Only visited Conny

Were first in line on Sunday morning to visit Constellation. It has been painstakingly restored and is a must see for history, warship, and sailing buffs. Whereas one can tour only the main or two decks of most ships of this type, all decks are open (no wheel chair access it would spoil the experience). Trip is self guided, easy to understand and was fascinating for both of us who come from very different backgrounds. Passed on the submarine since I had been on it as an operational ship more than once as a kid growning up in New London. And if you grow up in New London, Coast Guard cutters become boring after a time. However, if you've never been on a submarine, it's a must visit for adults and children. If you like these ships and are ever in Philadelphia, visit the USS Olympia and its submarine.
