New London Naval Submarine Base
Public Affairs Office -- 860/694-3914
This is home to the U.S. Navy's Submarine School. They will host Scout
groups. They have the Nautilus submarine open as a floating museum, which
the kids love. They also did a special training demonstration for us
where they taught the boys how to repair steam pipe with a "strongarm",
then took us to the training room where they simulated a sub being
attacked. We watched from the control room. That was fantastic. Great
meals at the galley, super cheap cost.
