This is a combination of our most popular tour with a helicopter flight over Honolulu. This is the best of both worlds and a great way to experience the best of Pearl Harbor.
Start your morning with pickup by our friendly guides in Waikiki at your hotel or condo. They will take you on a journey through Honolulu making your way to the Pearl Harbor National Monument. At this national park, you will be able to explore with your guide, the museums, and exhibits of the visitor center before embarking on a boat tour to the Arizona Memorial.
The Memorial straddles a battleship that was destroyed during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. It is a memorial to all those whose lives were lost in the bombing of the harbor and their remains reside within the sunken ship to this day.
We then take a drive onto Ford Island to visit the Battleship Missouri. This huge ship, that you can see looking over the Memorial, represents the ending of the war. Upon itʻs decks, Japan signed the official documents that took them out of World War II and ended it worldwide for everyone. This mighty battleship has seen a lot of action in itʻs 50-year service life as well as been the star in many movies including “Battleship”.
The ground tour finishes as we leave Pearl Harbor and head over to the airport for a 45-minute helicopter flight over it all. The views on this flight are incredible as you enjoy sights like Diamond Head, Waikiki Beach, Historic Honolulu, Punchbowl Crater, and of course, the iconic view of Arizona from above. These will be memories you wonʻt soon forget.
Your guide will return you back to your hotel after the flight. A full 7-8 hour tour of Pearl Harbor and the skies above.
Please ask us here if you have any questions.
