Guests can explore, inside and out, one of WII’s most decorated fleet submarines – the USS Bowfin. After December 7th 1941 nearly every ship and military aircraft on the island of Oahu had been damaged or destroyed. This left the defense of Hawaii to the few ships not damaged during the Japanese attack, two aircraft carriers and the submarine fleet. Known as the U.S. Navy’s “Silent Service”, the U.S. Pacific submarine fleet sank thousands of tons of Japan’s merchant and naval ships, crippling the enemies supply lines and preventing them from mounting more attacks against Hawaii while the Navy and American industries rebuilt and added to the Pacific Naval Fleet.
