The Reunions

The group rate is $116.02 per night for either a single king size bed or two queen size beds AND includes breakfast!

Make sure you mention you are with the USS William H. Bates (SSN 680) Association, or just SSN 680 to receive the group rate.

I’d recommend you reserve for four nights to allow flexibility in assignment to the submarine tour. There will be two boat tours, one Tuesday the 23rd, and one Thursday the 25th based on the maximum tour size of 30 persons.

We will ask your preferences later, and you can adjust your reservations then. We are not planning any organized activities on Thursday other than the boat tour, so those that tour Tuesday can depart Thursday morning.

More on activities to follow - if you have questions, please post them here.
