BATTLESHIP MISSOURI & HELICOPTER TOUR
See all of Pearl Harbor and Honolulu from the ground and the sky. This tour combines the most popular stops at Pearl Harbor with a 45-minute helicopter tour of Oahu.
We will pick you up at your accommodation and take you on a visit to the Arizona Memorial, the stark white structure that spans the width of the battleship. The ship was attacked on Dec. 7th, 1941, and remains there to this day as a national monument and final resting place for over 1100 brave Sailors and Marines.
There will be plenty of time to explore the Visitor Center's grounds and museums before and after the boat ride across the harbor. You will go to the "Mighty Mo," a battleship named after the great State of Missouri. It was on her decks that World War 2 ended for Japan. This ship is huge, and you can definitely get lost inside it.
The highlight of the tour comes next! You will go to the airport for a Honolulu city tour in a helicopter. Fly over Pearl Harbor and see the outline of Arizona from above. Fly over the National Cemetery of the Pacific at the Punchbowl Crater, Downtown Honolulu, Waikiki, and Diamond Head too.
Battleship Missouri & Helicopter Tour Features
Honolulu Helicopter Flight
Seeing Arizona from above is something that will stick with you for a long time. Itʻs brings everything you have seen at Pearl Harbor earlier in the day into perspective. It will make you appreciate the sacrifice of the 1000s of people who died the day that ship sunk, targets of Japanese aggression during that time.
The city tour from the sky takes you over various beautiful places like Diamond Head, Historic Downtown, & the National Cemetary Of The Pacific in Punchbowl Crater.
USS Arizona Memorial
The Arizona Memorial spans a battleship that was sunk on the United States' first day of battle with the Japanese Empire at the start of World War II. On this day, thousands of sailors and marines were killed as Japanese planes attacked the navy ships stationed around Pearl Harbor. On that fateful day in December, this ship took a direct hit and blew up, killing almost everyone who instantly served on her at the time.
Pearl Harbor National Monument
All our Pearl Harbor tours start with a stop at the Visitor Center and Museums. Pearl Harbor National Monument contains the USS Arizona Memorial and various museums dedicated to Submariners, Pilots, Sailors, and Marines. It's a fascinating look into a bygone era of 1940's Hawaii, America, and the monumental war effort of the country’s greatest generation.
Boarding a Navy ship for many is a once in a lifetime experience, while for many others, it’s like coming home. We know that everyone who takes this tour will love exploring this historic battleship. This Naval vessel has seen its share of action across the world and is highly decorated. It now stands in protection over its sister ship the Arizona with these two battleships representing the start and the end of World War 2.
City Tour and Punchbowl National Cemetery
This city tour takes place from the sky. Your 45-minute helicopter flight will take you above all these historic spots. You will have an incredible view of Waikiki Beach, South Oahu, Diamond Head, and The National Cemetery of The Pacific at Punchbowl Crater.
Seeing the USS Arizona from above is something that will stick with you for a long time. It brings everything you have seen at Pearl Harbor earlier in the day into perspective. It will make you appreciate the sacrifice of the hundreds of people who died during the attack on Dec. 7th, 1941.
