USS Seawolf (SSN-21), is a nuclear powered fast attack submarine and the lead ship of her class. She is the fourth submarine of the United States Navy named for the seawolf, a solitary fish with strong, prominent teeth and projecting tusks that give it a savage look. The contract to build her was awarded to the Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics on 9 January 1989 and her keel was laid down on 25 October 1989. She was launched on 24 June 1995, sponsored by Mrs. Margaret Dalton, and commissioned on 19 July 1997. Adding support personnel as well as ship’s crew, there are 140 personnel attached to Seawolf.

History

Seawolf leads USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) and Japanese destroyer JS Ōnami (DD-111) during an exercise.
Seawolf is featured in a 1998 episode of the documentary Super Structures of the World: Seawolf. The program followed her construction and sea trials.

Between 25 and 27 March 2006, a series of anti-submarine warfare exercises were held in Hawaiian waters that included Seawolf, Carrier Strike Group Nine, the nuclear-powered attack submarines Cheyenne, Greeneville, Tucson, and Pasadena, as well as land-based P-3 Orion aircraft from patrol squadrons VP-4, VP-9, and VP-47.

On 22 July 2007, Seawolf transferred from her previous homeport of Naval Submarine Base New London in Groton, Connecticut, to Naval Base Kitsap, Washington.

In 2015, Seawolf was deployed to the Arctic region for six months.
