  • Excellent spot for a visit - even you are not a military buff. A chance to see the inside of a submarine and get an idea what life is like for those guys. Great knowledgeable guide, a truly interestin...  more »
  • We happened upon this submarine when we were just out for a country drive ... Didn't know it was there, and was so thrilled to see it! Will bring the grandkids with us next time!  more »

  • I went into the tour not knowing what to expect. I am glad I took it. It is not a fun tour. There is no way to make being on that sub into a pleasant experience, and I think that is the value of the tour. They have made it as clean as possible and gotten rid of the smells as much as possible but despite that it is still not nice to be on this sub and you get a taste of what it would have been like to work on a sub. Expensive and smelly and unpleasant and I would not go again, but at the same time I felt it was certainly worth it to go once. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the tour I think ran about 40 minutes with a small group - there is only so cheap they could make this and still break even.
  • Great tour. Guide was well informed but also genuinely interested in the history. Stories make you very proud to be Canadian. Highly recommended even at $20.
  • The submarine is pretty cool. I sometimes had trouble hearing our guide. I would have liked to hear more stories about the sub in action and less technical information.
  • A chance to tour a Submarine how many can say that you have .I have taken the tour 3 times and each time I have learned amazing facts about our Canadian Cold War hero's.You should visit.
  • A very interesting tour, though it is rather expensive and the sub is rusting rather badly.
