USS Clytie (AS-26) was an Aegir class submarine tender in the United States Navy.

She was launched 26 November 1943 by Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi, under a Maritime Commission contract. Clytie was sponsored by Mrs. C. H. Leavitt and transferred to the Navy 26 February 1944. She was converted at Bethlehem Steel in Hoboken, New Jersey and commissioned 18 January 1945 with Commander C. H. Walker in command.

Returning to New London 17 October, Clytie remained there except for a brief overhaul at Philadelphia until placed out of commission in reserve 5 October 1946.
