Pearl Harbor Video
One of the highlights at the Visitor Center is a short film that includes actual footage of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Exiting the Pearl Harbor Memorial Theater, you board a US Navy shuttle boat for a tour of the harbor. See the USS Arizona Memorial: a serene structure anchored directly above the sunken wreck of the enormous battleship. Take a moment to pay your respects to the 1,177 men who lost their lives when their ship exploded and sank. When you gaze into the water, look out for rainbow patterns. Even today, droplets of oil called the "Black Tears of the Arizona" escape from the ship’s hull, creating kaleidoscopic images on the surface.
Back on land, the tour continues to the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park. The submarine is open for visitors over the age of 4 to explore. Enter the cramped space and get a first-hand idea of what life and work on these vessels was like. The adjacent museum provides additional facts about the vessel, as well as housing a huge collection of submarine memorabilia.
Another awe-inspiring ship included on the tour is the Battleship Missouri, affectionately known as “Mighty Mo”. Board this battleship to see the very deck on which World War II officially ended when the surrender documents were signed by the Japanese. As you make your way through the different areas of the ship, look out for the massive gun turrets and the dent in the hull left by a kamikaze attack.
The last museum on the tour is the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum. After seeing the harbor and the battleships it’s easy to forget that some of the most crucial action during the War in the Pacific happened high up in the air. This museum displays aircraft from nearly a century of aviation history, and provides insight into aerial warfare from its earliest days up to the present. As you walk through the hangars you can see bullet holes in the windows that have been there since the Japanese attack in 1941.
Before heading back to Ko Olina, your guide takes you on a drive through historic downtown Honolulu. See reminders of Hawaii's royal past such as ‘Iolani Palace and the statue of King Kamehameha the Great. The Hawaii State Capitol and ancient Kawaiaha’o Church are also part of the tour, as is a drive through the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Punchbowl Crater.
