  • The visit of the Sub is great and informative. See how the crew could live in a small place is to see. I'm glad, having visited before have booked for a sunset because the smell of fuel is intense, inside. For a visit of c, is OK but for a sunset I would have found this intense. My sense of smell is highly developed. For what is the lighthouse I couldn't climb but I suffer from dizziness, my spouse made the visit (July 2015) and found it interesting and enjoy the magnificent view.

  • Fantastic experience, well done with audio guide in your language of choice. A well crafted experience to get to know life in a submarine. Narrated in a very accessible way for adults and children.
  • This was an experience not to miss! We took an overnight tour of this submarine. The tour consists of a guided tour of every part of the ship, and how life is on board a sub, you learn all the different stations,, and how to operate them, then they run through a scenario and some fun games. You watch a movie then its time to sleep on the cramped sleeping quarters. In the morning you are severed a continental breakfast, given your submariner's pin and leave the sub. Do not miss this fantastic experience.
  • Any adventurous person must visit the submarine. The Empress museum is very nice too.
  • When we went the sub was open . Was great. I will go back when the light house is repaired.
  • A really entertaining place, the only outside submarine of the Canada!
