Can I take a boat tour to Pearl Harbor?

It was once possible to take a boat tour to Pearl Harbor and see the Arizona Memorial from the water. Now, commercial vessels are not allowed in the harbor. The change in policy was made after September 11, 2001, when security at all military bases was heightened.

Currently, the only way to see the Arizona Memorial from the water is on the Navy shuttle boat that is part of the Arizona Memorial program. This program is included on every Pearl Harbor Tour.

If you know someone who owns a boat that is harbored in Pearl Harbor, you may sail in the harbor, but those boats are not allowed near the Arizona Memorial.

Even when boat tours were allowed in Pearl Harbor, they did not stop at the Arizona Memorial to let people out. Most visitors made another trip to Pearl Harbor to join the official tour that boarded the memorial.
