    Indeed it is, its a large fresh-water (former Coy pond) pool situated under two foot-bridges that lead to the entrance of the Nauticus marine museum at Norfolk, Virginia. Right next door, on loan from the Navy, is the USS WISCONSEN, a battleship of WW-2 vintage.

    The pool is about three feet deep and well maintained by the staff. We operate here every third-Saturday of the summer months. Here are some videos shot at this facility throughout the years:
