Top 50 Ultimate Experiences — Tour a United States Navy Fast Attack Nuclear Submarine

BadAss Experience — Tour an Active Nuclear Submarine

When I was in Hawaii this summer, I was fortunate to get a tour of the USS Pasadena – a Fast Attack Nuclear Submarine.  (btw, still in active service).  Yea, this baby has torpedoes and tomahawk missiles!

USS Pasadena - US Nuclear Attack Submarine "Anytime, Anywhere"

Pasadena provides the Fleet Commander or Task Force Commander a multi-mission platform. This vessel has unlimited endurance due to the nuclear propulsion plant, advanced sonar, torpedo, cruise missile, and mine delivery systems, a combination of speed and stealth due to quieting and the capacity to fulfill numerous missions.

  1. I am really interested in submarines, and so far all I’ve been able to see are WWII subs so it’s interesting to know that a modern day sub is available for viewing. You’ve got me interested in posting more about my sub adventures on my blog. Maybe I’ll start with the two Soviet subs in California !!
