Naval Base Kitsap
Welcome to Naval Base Kitsap
Naval Base Kitsap (NBK) serves as the host command for the Navy’s fleet throughout the Pacific Northwest, providing exceptional installation services, programs, and facilities to meet the needs of its hosted war-fighting commands, tenant activities, and personnel – all of whom deserve the best there is to offer 24/7.
The Navy in the Pacific Northwest
NBK is the third largest U.S. Navy installation in the United States, and arguably the most complex. NBK is home to a diverse range of high-value strategic missions, including all types of submarines, two Nimitz-class aircraft carriers, Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and the largest fuel depot in the Continental U.S. These facilities provide critical support to the National Defense Strategy. NBK is also the home of several Research, Development, Testing & Evaluation (RDT&E) commands that ensure the Navy’s technological advantage. NBK and its supported commands produce substantial economic benefits to its surrounding communities.
NBK is geographically located on the Kitsap Peninsula in Washington state, and is a conglomerate of installations at Bangor, Bremerton, Jackson Park, Keyport, and Manchester. NBK encompasses more than 12,000 acres supporting more than 70 tenant commands, including Commander, Navy Region Northwest (NRNW), Commander, Submarine Group 9 (CSG-9), and Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Northwest headquarters. The base is also responsible for Naval Hospital Bremerton (NHB).
