The submarine Clamagore was commissioned in 1945 just before the end of World War II. She spent a 30-year career operating in the Atlantic and Mediterranean. The Clamagore patrolled the tense waters around Cuba in 1962 during the Bay of Pigs incident. One of the last diesel-powered submarines in the U.S. Navy, it was decommissioned in 1975.

The tour covers her control room, berthing and messing areas, engine rooms, maneuvering room, and displays of submarine warfare. You enter the sub by descending into the Forward Torpedo Room. Watch your head and shins as you go through. The spaces are cramped on the submarine so caution is advised for visitors with health problems.

KAT'S VIEW

The Clamagore is a submarine. I liked its doors. You might want to watch your head though. The sub was so cool. I enjoyed the place. It had a crew of 8 officers and 72 men. It was towed to Patriots Point in 1981. When you first enter the sub you are located in the torpedo room. There is and empty torpedo tube and one that has a torpedo in it.
