USS Bowfin (SS-287) is a fleet attack submarine that fought in the Pacific during WWII, and helped to make famous the term, “Silent Service.” Bowfin was launched on 7 December 1942, exactly one year after the attack on Pearl Harbor. She was nicknamed the Pearl Harbor Avenger, so it is fitting that her permanent home is at Pearl Harbor, Hawai’i.

Throughout WWII USS Bowfin went out on nine war patrols between 1943 and 1945. War patrols of WWII are similar to what we think of as deployments today. It was a period of about two months where a submarine would patrol a designated region of ocean for Japanese ships or boats. Bowfin served in the Pacific and spent most of her patrols in the South China Sea, Celebes Sea, off the East coast of Japan, and into the Sea of Japan, is steeped in history as the pivotal World War II submarine launched on December 7, 1942, exactly one year after the Pearl Harbor attack, and one of 15 submarines that was not turned into scrap metal.

Free entrance into Pearl Harbor? Really?

Yes! First things first, head to Pearl Harbor early because it’s first come-first served. The first 1,300 people will be let in for free starting at 7:00am. The free entrance will get you into Pearl Harbor and USS Arizona Memorial program which includes a 23 minute documentary in a theater, a boat ride to the memorial, 15 minutes at the memorial, and a boat ride back to explore more of Pearl Harbor on land.

The USS Arizona memorial program with the documentary is my favorite part. Yeah, call me too serious but I’ve actually watched that countless times and haven’t gotten tired.

Well I didn’t really know there was restricted age for kids and so took them all together to the harbor. They were taken away to go visit the museum for free and I bet they even had more than the adults.

My visit was short but great and the best I can imagine. The tour was great at every point and I really appreciate the guide who was patient enough to put me through all I wanted. I really enjoyed taking pictures all the way and I wish to cherish the memory every day.

My friend took me to this place and we got a free passage into the Pearl Harbor and USS Arizona Memorial program. We enjoyed the documentary and boat ride to the memorial. After endless pictures of taking, we got a boat ride back to explore more of Pearl Harbor on land.

Last time I was at the USS bowfin submarine, it was really nice. My son got into the junior submariner program and he couldn’t stop talking about it when we got home. It’s pretty cool I must say.
