USS Triton Sail Park

The USS Triton Submarine Sail Park in North Richland features the decommissioned 23‐foot-tall USS Triton submarine sail. The Triton was powered by two nuclear reactors and was the first submarine to perform a submerged circumnavigation of the Earth.

Groups and individuals are encouraged to visit the sail park. The park is open year-round for self-guided tours of the vessel’s exterior with displays that share the story of this first-generation nuclear-powered U.S. submarine.

Tours inside the Triton sail must be scheduled with the Port by completing our tour request form. Tour guests explore the submarine’s conning tower, where instruments are still in place and learn about the USS Triton’s historical impact as a deterrent during the Cold War. Tour guides also share the community’s rich military history, including our region’s role in World War II and the Cold War.
