Arizona Memorial tickets are included with all of our Pearl Harbor tours. There is a special system for authorized tour companies to reserve your tickets in advance so you don’t have to wait in line at Pearl Harbor.
Some guests prefer to visit Pearl Harbor on their own. They often arrive before 6:00am to ensure that they have a chance to get some of the limited tickets that are set aside for those without advance reservations. Individuals can also reserve tickets in advance on recreation.gov, but keep in mind that neither of these options include a guide or transportation.
You may have heard stories about visitors waiting in line for hours in the sun—or rain. This was true before the reservation system was implemented. Every day hundreds of people would line up and wait until Pearl Harbor opened its gates at 7:00am and the ranger handed each person a ticket one at a time. Often, visitors who showed up at 7:15am would find out that all of the tickets for the day were gone. Fortunately, arriving hours ahead of time is no longer necessary, thanks to the Arizona Memorial ticket reservation system. That said, it does still happen that someone may arrive in the busy summer season at 7:15am and find out that the walk-up Arizona Memorial Tickets have all been handed out.
