USS Requin Submarine

USS Requin (SS 481) self-guided tours operate every 20 minutes with a maximum of 15 people, and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. To tour the submarine, please meet one of our submarine staff members at the Requin Gateway on the Ground Level in the RiverSide Lobby and they will take you aboard or give you a time to return.

A uniquely immersive experience!

Come aboard to learn how 80 men used their expertise, humor and sheer ingenuity to carve out a rough and adventurous life during USS Requin’s (SS 481) lengthy defense and scientific missions, some of which are still classified to this day! State-of-the-art and battle ready when she set out just days before the end of World War II, Requin holds the distinction of being the Navy’s first Radar Picket submarine.
