Halloween on a Submarine Night Tours, Oct. 18 and 19 only!
Come listen to ghostly true tales of maritime madness and heroism told aboard this WWII submarine while you try to avoid being a snack for the Lake Erie Monster or plucked for parts by Erie Mary the Lake Witch.

Tickets are $13 at the booth for adults and students. Preschoolers are admitted free. It is suggested that toddlers and babies not attend this event which requires climbing vertical ladders. Refreshments served on the grounds.
The USS COD Submarine is open for visitors every day -- without exception -- from April 27 through September 30. We are also open on Saturdays in October, November and up until December 14, 2019. Our daily hours are 10am - 5pm Eastern time. (1000 - 1700). Please note: In order to allow even minimal time to visit the submarine our entrance gate will be closed at 4:30pm (1630).
School field trips to COD have been very popular and are encouraged as an educational and entertaining experience for area youngsters. Free parking and discounts from the already nominal admission fees are provided. Please call (216-566-8770), or use the e-mail address below to make arrangements for field trips.

Come aboard and travel back in time to a place where survival depended upon silence, deep water, and well aimed torpedoes. USS Cod is where Cleveland honors its veterans!
COD is docked in Cleveland's North Coast Harbor, on North Marginal Rd., between E. 9th St., and Burke Lakefront Airport, about 1,000 feet east of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Use the East 9th St. exits of Interstates 71, 77, and the Memorial Shoreway. Look for USS COD signs to direct you to our site.

USS COD Documentary
Our friends at World of Warships, Naval Legends have produced a fantastic two-part documentary
on the USS Cod. It's a great overall look at Cod and her role in WWII submarine combat. Enjoy!
We recently acquired two GM Cleveland Model 248 engines
that had originally been used aboard another WW-II submarine, USS Stingray SS-186. The two engines will
be used for parts for the restoration of Cod's engines. These very large V-16,
1,600 HP diesel engines were originally built right here in Cleveland, Ohio -- the
last in 1943. Each engine, with its attached DC electrical generator, weighs about 43,000 pounds (21,000 kG). Here
is a photo showing one of these engines loaded aboard a transporter.
