Community members may have noticed a U.S. Navy submarine docked at Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Esquimalt this weekend.

A spokesperson from the military base confirmed the submarine was docked on the Island on Saturday, though they were unauthorized to say how long it will be staying for.

The submarine is in town to allow its crew members to rest before returning to their home port in the U.S.

The submarine may sometimes be visible from shore. CFB Esquimalt warns that a perimeter has been set up around the vessel, so if anyone on the water wants to get a closer look they will be turned away.
