Some USS Pampanito Favorite Links

Submarine Links:

Pampanito is very much a part of the San Francisco waterfront. Through our periscope you can see the ships come and go, Alcatraz and Angel Islands, the Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge (through the periscope.) So we would also like to point out that Museum of the City of San Francisco  is just a couple of blocks away from Pampanito.

Just before the entrance to the Golden Gate bridge you will find the Lone Sailor monument http://www.goldengatebridge.org/visitors/whattodo.php/.
