Maritime Image of the Day: “Navy SEALS Locking Out Procedure”

PortandTerminal.com, May 1, 2020

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – Today’s “Maritime Image of the Day” dates back to 1991 and shows a diver as he descends to the USS WOODROW WILSON (SSBN-624) to videotape Navy SEAL team members entering and exiting the vessel during locking out procedures off the coast of Puerto Rico.

Locking out is a procedure in which SEALs exit a submerged submarine, along with their mission equipment. The reverse procedure is known as ‘locking in’. These are arduous and dangerous procedures but are worth it since they allow for a completely clandestine stealth infil/exfil of SEAL teams.

The camera operator for this photo and others below is PHC Mark Reinhard.

Here’s another shot that shows the SEALs as they exit the submarine.
