Anti-aircraft and anti-ship guns will be fired during the exercise, the navy added.
Cmdr. Chad Hardt, commanding officer of the Tucson, said the deployment gives the Navy an "opportunity to strengthen the outstanding relationship that exists between the USA and the Republic of Korea".
U.S. Naval Forces Korea announced the arrival Friday morning, stating the visit was part of a regularly scheduled Western Pacific tour.
The nuclear-powered supercarrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) and the South's Sejong the Great-class guided-missile destroyers (KDX III) will participate in the maritime exercises, along with around 40 other vessels.
As a rule, the US Navy does not comment on future operations, but the Reagan has been spotted in Korea's vicinity recently. The US Navy said in a statement that the drill is created to promote "communications, interoperability, and partnership" between the two militaries.
The U.S. guided missile submarine USS Michigan has arrived in the South Korean port of Busan from its forward-deployment port in Guam for a rare public port-of-call.
Additionally, the submarine is known to sometimes carry special forces.
Earlier, USS Tucson, a Los Angeles-class attack submarine, made a port call in Jinhae, staying in the south coast military port for four days through Wednesday.
