Pearl Harbor Tours


No trip to Oahu would be complete without visiting Hawaii's most popular tourist attraction ... the USS Arizona Memorial. All of the tours featured on this page include 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. There are many large tour buses that bring guests to Pearl Harbor, but all tours featured here on this page are superior to the big bus tours because these excursions are all done in smaller 25 passenger minicoaches. This gives each guest more personal attention from the guide, and the oversize windows in these minicoach vehicles offers superior visibilty. Look over this list and select the tour which is right for you. Pickup at Waikiki and Ala Moana area hotels, the Honolulu Harbor cruise ship dock, or Honolulu airport hotels is included with these tours. Those staying on the west side or the north shore of Oahu will need to drive to a pickup point near the beginning of the tour route. Due to smaller group sizes these tours should be arranged well in advance of your arrival in Hawaii!

Attire and Advisory: Tour participants should wear respectful attire (no swimwear and shoes must be worn). Due to hightened 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.

ENOA / V


Arizona / Missouri / Punchbowl Tour

Schedule: This tour operates daily. Morning pickup is between 6:15am and 6:35am. Approximate return is 1:00pm. Not available on 12/7/2014 due to annual observations of Pearl Harbor Day.

 

This tour takes you to the beginning and ending of World War II. You'll watch the documentary film and board the ferry for the ride out to the Arizona Memorial, which represents the beginning of American involvement in the war. You'll also have a chance to visit the USS Oklahoma Memorial, which stands as a monument to the 429 sailors who died when this ship capsized during the attack on Pearl Harbor. You will also participate in a guided tour of the USS Missouri, a battleship of the same class as the USS Arizona. The USS Missouri was the scene of the end of World War II as the Japanese signed formal documents of surrender aboard this ship in Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945. You will see a copy of the Declaration of Surrender on the exact spot where the document was signed. A drive through the National Cemetary of the Pacific at Punchbowl Crater completes this very popular and very moving tour. Please note that a meal stop is not included in this tour so we recommend that you eat an early breakfast prior to pickup, but snacks are available for purchase at the Arizona Memorial vistors center and the USS Missouri gift shop. Adults $72.60; children 1-11 $56.65

 


Pearl Harbor / Circle Island Combo

Schedule: This tour operates daily. Morning pickup is between 6:15am and 6:35am. Approximate return is 4:00pm. Not available on 12/7/2014 due to annual observations of Pearl Harbor Day.

This full-day tour is perfect for those who want to see as much as possible in one day! Visit the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, including the documentary film and boat ride to the memorial. The tour will continue on a 120 mile full-day circle island tour route. Numerous stops are made throughout the day including the Dole Pineapple Plantation visitor's center, North Shore surfing beaches, the Nu'uanu Pali Lookout, the Halona Blowhole, the Hanauma Bay lookout (closed Tuesdays), and Diamond Head. You'll see the beautiful coral and sand beaches of Oahu's windward side, the famous landmark islet known as "Chinaman's Hat", and drive through Kahala, also known as the "Beverly Hills of Hawaii." A meal stop is made during the day where you may purchase lunch on your own. Your guide will most likely include additional stops during the day depending on his/her narrative and interesting scenes along the way. Adults $67.65; children 1-11 $55.75


CRUISE SHIP PASSENGERS

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 any of the daily tours on the same day that you board your NCL cruise ship. If you are on a cruise that visits Honolulu just for the day, the Pearl Harbor / Honolulu City tour may be available for you.



ACTIVITY TIPS

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.

I acknowledge that I have read the booking procedures below and wish to submit this reservation for processing.

Upon submitting your activity reservation for processing, one copy is sent to your e-mail address so that you have a record of your order. We will make reservations for you and send an e-mail confirming all of the details. These confirmations are often sent a few minutes after your reservation, but some activities take longer to confirm than others. You will receive an e-mail confirmation by the end of the next business day at the latest. There are no tickets that you need to pick up prior to your event. Your e-mail confirmation will have all the details you need to check in and enjoy your selected activity. This saves you precious time when you arrive in Hawaii. 

A credit card is required to guarantee payment for your reservations, but in most cases WE DO NOT charge your credit card when your order is placed. Your credit card is typically charged five days before you leave for Hawaii, and a voucher is faxed to the vendor. Some activities are charged at the time of check-in and your e-mail confirmation will inform you if this is the case. If you cancel your activity after your credit card has been charged you will receive a refund less 10% to cover our credit card processing costs.

We do have one vendor that requires payment at the time that your reservation is made. These activities are clearly marked on our website with the words, "Payment required at the time of reservation."

After making reservations, you may reschedule or cancel your activity up until 48 hours prior to its start (a few activities have 72 hour cancellation policies ... see your confirmation e-mail for details). Within 48 hours of the start of your activity all reservations are final and non-refundable (unless the event is cancelled by the vendor due to weather or other factors). Due to our incredible climate here, weather cancellations are rare.  No-shows and cancellations without adequate notice are charged in full on the credit card used to secure the reservation and are non-refundable.
