The entrance to Point Lighthouse - father is free this year to celebrate the 150th of the Canada. Museum of the Empress of Ireland which sank in 2014 and eventually the Onondaga submarine with visit self-guided. Nice well laid out site.

    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.
