Three Aircraft Carriers at NAS North Island

Filed under: Places to visit — Tags: , , — washaw @ 9:00 am

Visitors to San Diego can see three aircraft carriers in port at the same time.   The ships are pierside at Naval Air Station North Island.   One third of the U.S. Naval Pacific Fleet is home ported in San Diego Bay, designated as a West Coast ‘megaport’, making it instrumental in the National Defense.



  1. You can submit the same one to Shadow Sundays 🙂

    Looks like a pretty day. I wanted to go to San Diego for my 30th bday, but was over-ruled by my twin and our friend. Sigh.

  3. Wow that is amazing, I would love to see just one aircraft carrier let alone 3. I wonder why they were there at the same time.

    Thanks for posting this.

  7. Now that’s home! Was the Kitty Hawk there? My dad was stationed on that for years. I’ve even been on a few floats around the bay on it when I was a kid 🙂

  11. I love looking at the Navy ships! I went on one of those Hornblower cruises once and they drove us all around the Naval yard.
