The Sealion On 10 November 1945, preservation of machinery and equipment was started at the San Francisco Naval Shipyard, incident to her being inactivated. On 16 February 1946, the SEA LION was decommissioned after a short but successful career.
After being in the graveyard for over two years, her conversion to a Submarine Troop Transport was begun on 31 March 1948. She was recommissioned on 2 November 1948 under the command of Commander W. L. KITCH, USN.
Arrival in Key West in January of 1968 was of very short duration, and SEA LION departed for Springboard Operations in the Caribbean on 4 January. Transiting directly to St. Thomas, SEA LION began diver training with UDT and SEAL Teams on a daily operations basis. Then came a weekend break with a port visit to St. Martin, Netherland Antilles. The month of February found SEA LION conducting ASW Operations with air and naval elements of the Dutch Navy off Curacao, Netherland, Antilles, spelled by a brief period of photo reconnaissance operations. A weekend visit to the port of Willemstad, Curacao (we SEALs had a great liberty there too!)was a very welcome break and the excellent local cuisine was greatly appreciated by the crew. More local ASW operations followed and on I February, SEA LION transited to Roosevelt Roads, Puerto Rico, where UDT 21 embarked for diver training operations in St. Thomas. SEA LION returned to her new home of Key West on the 27th for a badly needed rest and refit.
