Oahu Circle Island & Flights From All Islands
The incredible history is shared in the stories of the island and itʻs people, the Hawaiians. Our Circle Island Tour includes a stop at Pearl Harbor that is the most popular destination in Hawaii. Guests love being able to see some of the top attractions across the island all in one day.
Your day starts with a visit to Pearl Harbor. We take a Navy launch out to pay your respects at the USS Arizona Memorial. The visit brings out a lot of emotions for most visitors so we work to give you space to process it all. Once you come back to the visitor center, you can explore the museums and exhibits before heading out to see the rest of the island.
The 120-mile all-day tour takes us on a circle around the Ko’olau mountain range. We will stop at various places along the journey including overlooks, island-style attractions and friendly towns. There are a lot of great lookouts for pictures along the route including the Pali, Punchbowl and others. Great beaches also await like Waimea and Sunset too.

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 required on the USS Arizona Memorial; swimsuits not permitted. Bags not allowed in Pearl Harbor Visitor Center but if needed may be checked and stored for $5.00 per item.
Pearl Harbor Tours that include airline flights from Maui, Big Island of Hawaii, or Kauai can qualify for a refund if guests add the $15 per person insurance during checkout.

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.
Due to ceremonies honoring the attacks of 1941, we will not operate tours to Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial on December 7 each year.
Your visit to Pearl Harbor starts at the visitor center. Your guide will provide you an orientation before you explore the museum on your own as you make you way down to the Arizona Memorial Program theatre and boat launch. At the visitor center you can watch historical footage, view hundreds of exhibits spread around the grounds.
Each of our tours include a visit to the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. Your guide will provide fast-track tickets so you can walk right into the theatre. Before boarding the Navy launch out to the memorial, all visitors watch historical film footage and a tribute to all those whose final resting place is the sunken battleship.
There are so many views to be had that your neck will be sore trying to look in every direction. Your local expert guide will make sure you visit some of the most popular overlooks. You will have plenty of time to enjoy the stops, get some great pictures and make memories. From high up on the Pali to down by the coast and everywhere in between, your guide will make sure you see it all.
Oahu is known for some of the best surfing spots in the world and most of them are right off-shore from some great beaches. We will check out a number of places and stop at some for you to enjoy the sights and sounds of the beach. The legendary beaches and surf spots like Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach and Pipeline are on the route.
There is more than just surfing on the North Shore of Oahu. Beautiful little towns, great food, wonderful culture and as always beautiful coastline views. We explore all of these things and even have some time to stop for a meal and treats too!
