RELIVE THE MOMENTS OF PEARL HARBOR
Pearl Harbor is Hawaii’s number one visitor destination with over 1.8 million visitors a year. At the focal point is the Pearl Harbor Vistitor Center which provides access to the USS Arizona Memorial, the USS Battleship Missouri or “Mighty MO”, Bowfin Submarine & the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum nearby. Each of our Pearl Harbor Tours includes a fast-track ticket to view a 23-minute documentary film about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that brought the United States into World War II. Afterward, we board a 145 passenger U.S. Navy-operated boat for a solemn visit to the Memorial. You can also choose to start your tour of Pearl Harbor from any of the neighbor islands too!
Our small-group Oahu tours are only 12 guests or fewer per guide.

Why Book Pearl Harbor Tours with Us?
We offer an experience that you will both learn from and remember the rest of your life. When you visit the site of the Pearl Harbor attack, a site that shook the history of the world, a common feeling you will get is a sense of reverence and wonder. Rather than assuming that you will be able to understand and relate to all of the noteworthy sites or hoping that you meet a stranger who will be a history major to show you around, we can instead guarantee that you will have the best Pearl Harbor tour possible on Oahu by joining one of our professional, local expert guides.
Pearl Harbor Tickets Info
Each year the Historic Pacific Parks in and around Honolulu attract tourists from all over the world. The cost of Pearl Harbor tour tickets depends on which sites you want to see. The Visitor Center Museum hours, USS Arizona Memorial and Ford Island attractions are open from 7 AM to 5 PM every day excluding major holidays.
Due to the increasing confusion with the price, features and availability of park tickets, consider an Oahu private guide to handle your experience. Our tours are carefully scheduled to ensure that you get the most for your money, as opposed to simply being shown around. With each of our private tours comes an experienced and engaging guide who will give you considerable insight into the tragic events that surrounded the Japanese attack.
Each tour that we operate will take you to see the famous sunken memorial but no day tour is complete without experiencing a few of the other local sites. In addition to giving you insight regarding the other sites at Pearl Harbor, our expert guides can also show you great cultural attractions including Dole Plantation and their delicious pineapple whip ice cream, beautiful downtown Honolulu and its impressive King Kamehameha statue plus numerous other sites across Oahu. We also offer day tours from Maui, Hawaii (Big Island) & Kauai so you can have a complete Hawaiian vacation that includes Pearl Harbor no matter which island your staying on.
Who We Are
We (the founders) have a serious passion for history and connection with tragic events of the Pacific Theater in WWII. When we visited the memorial to the Japanese attack for the first time we were left awestruck and humbled by the extent of the events that happened on that tragic day. Feeling as if we were left with few avenues for creating some sort of closure to this atrocity, we decided to take action.
Visiting the World War II Valor In the Pacific National Monument allowed us to deeply connect with and relate to those who defended and/or died attempting to ensure the safety of their comrades and country. It was then that we knew we needed to do something to inspire world peace, instead of world war.
We believe inspiring peace through education is the quickest way to achieve it. We realized that offering the most informative tours of Pearl Harbor and the surrounding areas was one of the best ways to spread awareness of this horrific attack and the ensuing war on the United States. That single event, which occurred on our tiny island in the middle of the Pacific more than 75 years ago, shocked the entire world and forever changed its destiny.
Pearl Harbor Visitor Sites
No tour of Hawai’i is complete without a visit to the most iconic monument in the United States. Visitors will instantly recognize, due to the stark white structure over it, the remains of the sunken battleship Arizona. Various other sites are available to explore on nearby Ford Island. The USS Missouri, the USS Bowfin Submarine and the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museums are a few of those sites. Each tour can include other beautiful stops, scenic overlooks found throughout the island of Oahu and views of Honolulu’s historical sites.
If you have a specific interest in one of the following sites, check to make sure you book one of our tours going to that particular site (Polynesian Cultural Center, Pineapple Plantation or North Shore Oahu). Because the most popular destination for any tour on Oahu is unquestionably Pearl Harbor, we include that stop in all of our Pearl Harbor tours.
