Feel the reverence given to those fallen sailors at the USS Arizona Memorial, USS Oklahoma Memorial and in the Punchbowl National Cemetery.
After a short video, ride out to USS Arizona Memorial to view the sunken battleship and pay respects to the sailors still interred there. Take a short walk around the visitor center to the USS Bowfin, a submarine that served bravely in the Pacific during world war 2. Afterward, board a real-life battleship, the USS Missouri to understand more about life and battles on the seas during WW2.

We recommend booking your Pearl Harbor tours in advance of your arrival to Hawaii. Pearl Harbor is our #1 visitor destination and will sell out on certain days of the week. Book your tour for the 1st or 2nd full day after your arrival. Our guests usually get up early in the morning due to the time difference, so you’re usually wide awake by the time your tour starts, plus your tour guide will point out highlights not to miss on Oahu.
*Safety is our #1 priority. Sites & features of our tours can change due to adverse weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
Dress comfortably but please remember that shirts and shoes are required on the USS Arizona Memorial; swimsuits not permitted. Bags are not allowed in Pearl Harbor Visitor Center but if needed may be checked and stored for $7.00 per small bag or $10.00 per large bag.

No refunds issued for any tours within the 72-hour period, prior to the start of your tour.
No stop is guaranteed to be operating on the day of your tour. We have no control of Navy and Army operations which may result in the closure of Ford Island or the boats going to the Arizona Memorial without notice. In the event of this occurring, our guides will make up for it in a variety of ways so your experience is always worthwhile.
While there is no official dress code to visit the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites, we ask visitors to dress appropriately and respectfully. Swimsuits are not acceptable. High heels, skirts, and dresses are also not recommended. Flip-flops and sandals are permitted; however, we encourage you to wear closed-toe shoes as there is a lot of walking when visiting the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites.

*Note: Due to unforeseeable circumstances, the Navy may need to suspend boat operations to the USS Arizona Memorial at any time, or they may impose a capacity restriction on the boat. As a result, you may be placed in a standby line. Unfortunately, in these cases, there will be no refunds. You are still free to enjoy the Visitor’s Center, exhibits, and park monuments. Please accept our apologies in advance.
