Secrets of the Sub

Hawaii Themed Submarines

Hawaii Themed Submarines

kamehameha-submarine_web

USS Kamehameha (SSBN-642) was launched on 16 January 1965 and commissioned on 10 December 1965.  This submarine holds the name for King Kamehameha the Great.  It is fitting that one of our submarines bear the name of this striking figure in Hawaiian history.  His people were intrepid seafarers and knowledge of stars, winds and currents still arouse wonder and admiration.  For much of USS Kamehameha's service, she was based in Rota, Spain conducting deterrence patrols during the Cold War.  Commissioning gifts to the submarine are on display at the museum.

USS Honolulu

USS Honolulu (SSN-718), a Los Angeles-class submarine, was the third ship of the United States to be named for Honolulu, Hawaii. She was launched on 24 September 1983 and commissioned on 6 July 1985.  Honolulu’s patrols are commemorated by ten surfboards signed by the crews aboard her at the time. One of the four surfboards held at Bowfin Park is on display in the museum.

USS Hawaii


The USS Hawaii (SSN 776) is the first commissioned vessel of its name. Launched June 17, 2006 and Commissioned May 5, 2007 she is fortunate to be homeported in her namesake state. The submarine was named to recognize the tremendous support the Navy has enjoyed from the people and state of Hawaii, and in honor of the rich heritage of submarines in the Pacific.


Hawaii is the third of the Virginia Class submarines.  The Virginia-class of attack submarines surpasses the performance of any current projected threat submarine, ensuring U.S. undersea dominance well into the next century.

Bowfin Museum collections include models of all three submarines.
