One Of The Last WWII Submarines Is Right Here In Wisconsin And It’s So Worth A Visit

In its prime during World War II, this massive submarine patrolled the vast waters of the Pacific Ocean, sinking Japanese ships and rescuing sailors and aviators from the seas. The USS Cobia was part of the United States Navy and it was one of the incredible machines that helped decide the war. More than 75 years later, the Cobia has a permanent home in Manitowoc and it’s something you have to see.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

The sub is docked forever at the mouth of the Manitowoc River, and ongoing maintenance keeps the sub in great condition, even though it has been around for more than seven decades.

Tours of the USS Cobia take place daily and overnight stays are available. Learn more about the Wisconsin Maritime Museum here. When you’ve experienced the Cobia, there’s a lot more maritime history to be explored in Lake Michigan, including hundreds of mesmerizing sunken ships.
