Pearl Harbor Tours are operating normally, but tour capacity is very limited due to social distancing measures.  Do not wait until you arrive in Hawaii to arrange this tour! We recommend that you reserve your date just as soon as you make you flight and hotel reservations! This is especially true for holiday periods like Thanksgiving and Christmas weeks.

No trip to Oahu would be complete without visiting Hawaii’s most popular tourist attraction … the USS Arizona Memorial. The  Salute to Pearl Harbor Tour  is a great choice for those who want to visit Pearl Harbor but don’t want to spend an entire day there. It includes the Arizona Memorial visitor’s center, documentary film, and the ferry boat ride which takes you out to the memorial. From there you will gaze down into the water where just below the surface lies the decks of USS Arizona, final resting place for many of the 1177 crew members who lost their lives on December 7, 1941. These excursions are all done in smaller 25 passenger mini-coaches. This gives each guest more personal attention from the guide, and the oversize windows in these mini-coach vehicles offers superior visibility.

Waikiki Schedule: Daily with pickups at various meeting points in Waikiki. No tours on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day, and Pearl Harbor Day (Dec. 7th).

Pickup Locations: There are five pickup points in the Waikiki area … when you tell us where you are staying, we will arrange pickup at the meeting point closest to you. If you are staying outside of Waikiki (but not in the Koolina area) you will park in the municipal lot at the Honolulu Zoo and walk approximately 5 minutes to the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel.

Tour Times: There is a 7:30am tour and a 9:45am tour

Tour Length: Approximately 4.5 – 5 hours

Reservations: Due to smaller group sizes these tours should be arranged well in advance of your arrival in Hawaii!

What to Bring & Wear: Tour participants should wear respectful attire (shoes must be worn and no swimwear allowed). Due to heightened security no bags, purses, or strollers are permitted at the Memorial. Storage of these items is available for a nominal fee. Cameras and small, hand-carried wallets are permitted.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations must be made at least 48 hours before the start of the event.

City Tour Upgrade

Also offered at 9:45am from Waikiki there is a tour called the Pearl Harbor / Honolulu City Tour which is the same as the 9:45am Salute to Pearl Harbor but includes a drive through the historic sites of downtown Honolulu including views of the Hawaii State Capitol building, Iolani Palace, and a brief stop at the King Kamehameha Statue. This tour is a little over 5 hours in length.

Ko’olina Pickup Option

Because Ko’olina is on the other side of Pearl Harbor from most Oahu hotels (in Waikiki), the regular Pearl Harbor tours do not pick up there. Enoa has added a special Salute to Pearl Harbor Tour with Ko’olina hotel pickup on Wednesdays and Fridays with a slightly higher rate than the Waikiki tour. The downtown city tour option is not available from Ko’Olina…just the Salute to Pearl Harbor and also the longer Pearl Harbor Remembered tour that includes BOTH the Arizona and the Missouri.

If you are cruising on the Pride of America and spending the night at a hotel in Waikiki prior to your cruise, you can do the Salute to Pearl Harbor tour on the same day that you board your NCL cruise ship. 

High winds or structural or mechanical issues may affect operation of the Navy’s shuttle boat ride out to the Arizona Memorial … it may not be able to operate, or it may operate but view the memorial without actually landing. On days when this occurs there are no tour price adjustments made as such disruptions are beyond the control of the tour companies and when they do occur there is typically very little advanced notice. The Arizona Memorial visitor’s center, museum, and documentary film are still part of the tour on these affected days.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

A visit to Pearl Harbor is a must-do activity for anyone coming to Oahu. The USS Arizona Memorial is one of our nation’s most sacred places. Regardless of your interest in history or WWII, a visit to this shrine is an emotional experience. If you have never been … you should go. The documentary film prepares you well for what you are about to experience, because when the film ends and the doors open, everyone boards the Navy shuttle boat in hushed silence. The boat ride to the memorial only takes a few minutes. When you are on the Memorial, you’ll look down into the water and see the outline of the Arizona’s remains knowing that it is the final resting place for hundreds of US servicemen.

One tip for photographing the memorial … when you are re-boarding the boat for the return to the vistor’s center, try to get in the last row. As the boat pulls away from the Arizona, you will get your best photo from there.

This particular tour is a “short tour” for those who don’t want to spend the entire day at Pearl Harbor. We do suggest though that you do the “City Tour” version as it includes some dites of interest on the drive back to Waikiki from Pearl Harbor.
