Private Tour of the Hunt for Red October Submarine

By  | 

I was already excited when I bought my ticket for a Friday afternoon tour of the USS Blueback, the sub used in Hunt for Red October. But I had no idea how lucky I was…

Turns out I was the only one on the 3:10PM tour! I had been worried about squeezing through the narrow hallways in a huge group, now I was getting a personal tour.

To take the tour you have to be able to walk through a sub doorway unassisted. I made it through and practically bounded from the OMSI building to the docks below. My tour guide Steve was waiting for me and proceeded to give me an amazing and unforgettable tour.

All the areas marked “Crew Only” were open to me to wander around. Pretty awesome.
