The H.L. Hunley was a submarine belonging to the Confedate States of America. The submarine was the first submarine to successfully sink an enemy warship. The submarine came up and signaled to the people on land that the attack was a success then submerged and disappeared after the signal - and it remains a mystery what happened in between that signal and the Hunley's end.

The wreckage has been recovered from the depths and is now available for tours. Tours are available every Saturday and Sunday except for Easter. The tour includes many great sites including the original Hunley, facial reconstructions of the crew, artifacts, life size model of the Hunley from the TNT movie, National Geographic documentary and the gold coin that saved Hunley Captain's life.
