The Complete Pearl Harbor Tour

This whole-day tour includes all the sites in Pearl Harbor as well as round-trip transportation from Waikiki. This day of exploring, remembrance, and learning leaves you informed, educated, and awed. While you enjoy your time and focus your energy on all of the fascinating things to be seen, we take care of driving, getting tickets, and showing you the way. For an entirely worry-free experience you can even add a delicious lunch to your package!

After pick-up in Waikiki and a short drive highlighted by a live narration by your guide, we arrive at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. This place is much more than just an information desk. A wide variety of exhibits, as well as a 23-minute documentary, set the scene for your exploration of the site of one of the most devastating attacks in American history.

USS Arizona Memorial

After the film, a Navy vessel takes you across the azure lagoon to the USS Arizona Memorial. This memorial is located directly above the sunken battleship where she and most of her crew found their last resting place.

Once back on land, visit the Bowfin, a submarine launched exactly one year after the attack. Explore the narrow interior and imagine the cramped conditions under which men worked, fought, and lived aboard this ship. The attached Submarine Museum and Park offer a wide array of related memorabilia.

USS Missouri Battleship

Next, a shuttle to Ford Island brings you to the Battleship Missouri. This ship became world-famous as the site of the Japanese surrender, which brought an end to World War II. Don’t miss out on an inspection of the massive gun turrets, as well as the ship’s “battle scars,” including a large dent in the hull where an unsuccessful kamikaze strike hit the outside of the ship.

Just a short walk from the Missouri is the USS Oklahoma Memorial. This memorial is an installation of 429 white pillars, one for each man who died aboard the Oklahoma when she capsized and sank.

Pacific Aviation Museum

Map of Pearl Harbor

Next, we shift focus to the fighting that happened high in the air. For this, we visit the Pacific Aviation Museum. This impressive museum includes two hangars full of aircraft from nearly a century of aviation history. Anyone interested in history, physics, or engineering will take great pleasure in a visit to this museum. Look for bullet holes in the glass of the hangars: a reminder of what happened in this very place during the Pearl Harbor attack.

Cemetery of the Pacific

After this full day of exploring and taking in new information, wind down in air-conditioned comfort as you enjoy the scenery on the return drive. We take a small detour along the way to visit the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. This cemetery is set inside Punchbowl Crater, a long extinct volcanic crater just above Honolulu. As you pay your respects to the men and women buried here, don’t miss out on the beautiful scenery around you and the views of Honolulu skyline just below.

Honolulu City

The last activity of the day is a short trip even further back in time as we pass by some historic buildings in downtown Honolulu. See the Hawaii State Capitol Building and Iolani Palace, the last royal residence and home of Queen Liliuokalani. Take some pictures by the 18-feet-tall bronze statue of King Kamehameha the Great, the man who brought all the Hawaiian Islands together into one kingdom.

This full day of history really makes the most of your time on Oahu. Don’t waste your time looking for directions and parking, standing in line and getting lost. We take care of all the details so you can enjoy your day!
