The Submarine Experience

Immerse Yourself!

Did you know that 28 submarines were built in Manitowoc during World War II? Although USS Cobia is not one of the 28 submarines built here, she is a National Historic Landmark and an International Submariners Memorial. For more than 40 years Cobia has been a fitting memorial to the thousands of men and women who built submarines here and the brave men who served on them.

USS Cobia is the most intact World War II Submarine in the nation and is home to the oldest working radar in the world. During a 45-minute guided tour you will learn how submarines operate and what life was like aboard a "pig boat" with 79 other men.
