Beyond the Call to Duty

Go on the Beyond the Call of Duty Pearl Harbor Luxury Tour and experience every memorial and museum Pearl Harbor has to offer. With round-trip transportation, professional tour guides and all admission fees covered, the details will be covered before the tour starts.

Luxury Pearl Harbor Tour

A luxury mini coach will arrive at your hotel, with breakfast and chilled bottled water ready for you. Your tour guide will prepare you for your day at the United States Pacific Fleet Headquarters. Bypass the long ticket lines and enter the World War II Valor in the Pacific Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, with galleries full of historic photos and interactive exhibits. A documentary with actual footage taken on December 7, 1941 will be shown.

Lunch Included with Choice of:

  • – Lunch Buffet (*protein changes weekly 2 options provided) Kalua Pork, BBQ Chicken or Mahimahi, House Tossed Salad, Steamed White Rice and Assorted Cookies
  • – Drinks: Fountain Drink

A Navy vessel will transport you to the pristine USS Arizona Memorial, constructed directly above the mid-section of the sunken ship. The “Black Tears of the Arizona” can be seen on the surface of the water as the fuel slowly leaks up from the USS Arizona Battleship. Please take a moment to remember the 1177 service men still in the watery war grave, as well as those that survived the Pearl Harbor bombing and later elected to be buried with their crewmates.

Side view of USS Arizona Memorial

The USS Bowfin wreaked havoc on the Japanese naval fleet after being launched exactly 1 year after the attack on Pearl Harbor. As you walk through the cramped quarters of the submarine aptly nicknamed the “Pearl Harbor Avenger,” you can almost see the sweat of the men condensing off the torpedo room during battle in WWII.

The USS Oklahoma Memorial is comprised of 429 engraved black granite and white marble columns, each 7 feet tall. Each marker represents a life loss when the USS Oklahoma capsized in Battleship Row.

As your tour guide leads you through each deck of the USS Missouri, marvel at the massive gun turrets on the last battleship ever built by the United States. Imagine the signing of the Instrument of Surrender with General Douglas MacArthur as you stand on the Surrender Deck of the “Mighty Mo.

USS Battleship Missouri at Attention

Before leaving Ford Island, you’ll visit one of the best aviation attractions in the nation, the Pacific Aviation Museum. Nearly 300 airplanes were destroyed or damaged and the bullet holes from the Pearl Harbor attack are clearly visible in the blue glass windows of the hangars. The Pacific Aviation Museum houses aircraft from World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, as well as modern day aircraft currently in use.

After a full day, rehydrate, recline, and relax in air conditioning as you are chauffeured to the Punchbowl National Cemetery, built in the crater of an extinct volcano. Lady Columbia appears to watch over all who serviced the United States, including those killed at Pearl Harbor.

Your guide will continue to entertain you with information about Hawaii’s culture and draw your attention to landmarks such as the Hawaii State Capitol Building. Both ‘Iolani Palace, the home of Hawaii’s Kings and Queens until the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy and Kawaiaha’o Church, built from giant slabs of coral hauled to shore via canoe, can be easily seen from the giant windows of the motor coach.

King Kamehameha Statue Luxury Tour

In honor of King Kamehameha the Great, a towering 18 foot tall bronze statue was ordered from Italy. The tour will stop at the King Kamehameha Statue for a photo opportunity.

When booking the Beyond the Call of Duty Pearl Harbor Luxury Tour, no stone is left unturned – even lunch and dessert are included. Just show up and immerse yourself in the history of Pearl Harbor.

    Excellent add to our vacation. The tour guide new everything! The AC on th bus felt amazing as we weren’t used to this much heat. What a humbling experience paying our respects to our fallen heroes and seeing the oil stil bubbling to the the water’s surface just made it that more real. Learned a lot about Pearl Harbor and Hawaii from this tour. Will remember this for a life time.

    The docents do a great job bringing the history to life. The USS Arizona is very much the center point of that history. Always better to learn about history from the real places and not just a book. The memorial is a place to show respect what we found disrespectful were the amount of people taking selfies, there is a time and a place for that and here is not one of them. This is a place that is soaked in history and where people lost their lives.

    This is an eerie but also very emotional place to visit. Its very educational and shows lots of real footage of the bombing. getting to walk through the submarine was a highlight. It is an emotional experience as you see the ship below and the names of all those who gave their lives. Being there on Memorial Day, was something I will never forget.

    Awesome place with so much history. The presentation and honor of those who fell was much appreciated.

    There are 4 major venues:
    – the Arizona Memorial, be sure to see the film (23 minutes) and the museums
    – the Missouri, this is the battleship where the treaty was signed ending the war with Japan
    – the Pacific Aviation Museum
    – the USS Oklahoma Memorial

    See the USS Arizona Memorial, the Bowfin, the Missouri, and the aviation museum (which still has bullet holes in the building from December 7, 1941). Yes, this is a very sombre place, but it is also very attractive and we enjoyed our visit very much. Go. Now.

    The USS Arizona Memorial is so well done. The introductory film uses actual film footage from the attack. It helps explain the reason for the attack. I did this tour with family, there was so much history there. I would strongly advise this trip to anybody who goes. You’ll also be surprised at how much the tour guide knows.

    I enjoyed the “Alpha (USS Arizona) & the Omega” (USS Missouri) Battleship sites. The Arizona where US entered WW II, and The Missouri where WW II ended by the Japanese surrendering on her deck. I got very emotional when I go on board the memorial. To think about all those who died. I wish they had listened to the Navy. They knew something was wrong.

    Pearl Harbor is incredible. It’s breathtaking and heavy and intimidating, but the stories and the history will captivate you. This whole area is so well done. Worth the visit. The movie brings a tear to the eye. The outdoor area with interpretive panels is excellent. It’s a number one priority for me visiting Honolulu.

    Overall, this is a must see. It is a solemn place of remembrance to those who undeservedly lost their lives. Ones mind will wander at what happened there in the Harbor and on the banks of Ford Island where so many died leaving the water from burning oil. Out of respect for this grave sight, you must be properly dressed. No bathing suits.

    We watched a quick video, then took the boat operated by the US Navy out to the memorial over the USS Arizona. All I can say is wow. It has been a couple months and I still don’t think I have fully processed everything I experienced during this visit. To visit “pearl harbor” is a must do when in Oahu.

    Great place to spend the day with your kids to remember those who lost their lives for our freedom today!!! My dad was a sailor in the Pacific during World War 2 and thinking that there are still men entombed in the sunken ship broke my heart. So glad we went to pay our respects. The Arizona memorial is very moving and an emotional experience. To actually see the remains of the ship and see the oil seepage lets you know exactly where you are and to better understand what took place at that site.

    No trip to Oahu would be complete without seeing this at least once. You really get a feel for the respect that Americans feel for their Military and we also got to speak to a Veteran of the war. I’m definitely not a history fan, but I enjoyed our visit to Pearl Harbour. The memorial is deeply moving, and it is really an educational experience.

    This is a well put together memorial where you can tour through the story of WWII as told by local veterans and historians. So we saw the Pearl Harbor museum on the site and walked around the harbor itself, trying to imagine all that had happened there. It is very calm and serene.

    You can’t go to Hawaii without going to Pearl Harbor. This tour was amazing, but we could have spent much longer as we were so engrossed in the history of it all.

    One can only be humbled by the experience. It is made all the more real as we see the oil still coming out of the tanks so many years later. There isn’t much more to say that hasn’t been said in the reviews. This is a must if you travel to Hawaii. Come, respect the men…the young boys…the sailors, entombed in the sunken ship.

    From learning of the events that lead to the attack, plus seeing the still seeping oil from bellow the water, I spent the morning with tears in my eyes. Well organized memorial. Clean area and picture perfect. The other areas such as the museum are a good depiction of what happened there.

    It is a great/must see. However, be advised this is more than a memorial but a scared burial ground and people should be more respectful and teach their children as well as themselves to act respectful when visiting. We had the pleasure of having Mr. Jack as our tour guide. He was awesome! Gave us so much info and was a pleasure to be with! Definitely recommend this tour!

    I was blown away by the whole place but more so with the USS Arizona Memorial ,I learned so much & I am very grateful to all the soldiers past & present. A boat takes you out to visit Arizona’s resting place but before that a short video is shown. its very emotional once you get there and realize that there are still many bodies down there. Make sure you also include the USS Missouri tour ,it is also very good she to is an amazing ship you will be blown away when you tour inside her.

    A must do ,this place has so much History & is so informative. I didn’t want to go at first but went to keep my hubby company. I am so glad i did it was truly a place I will never forget. I enjoyed the USS Missouri tour and being able to stand at the exact spot where WW II ended.

    A good trip and the organization is good. There are still some survivors and so it is possible to speak with someone who was there on some occasions. See the names on the wall. See the names of the brethren who survived, but once they passed, sent their ashes here to join them. It is truly a destination for every American, if ever given the opportunity.

    I have been to the Pearl Harbor Arizona memorial many times and will continue to visit each time I come back to the island. There are so many interesting things to see and do. The whole place can easily take a whole day to explore!

    Amazing and humbling to see history up close and personal. My husband got to meet and talk to one of the Pearl Harbor survivors. The movie you watch before boat ride over to monument was excellent as well. A visit to Oahu must include a trip here!

    The tour of the battleship is absolutely great and they have opened up significant areas and the tours are well escorted and really interesting. A good day out and allow most of the day for this trip. One who visits the island of Oahu must make this a priority must see. It is a very emotional and patriotic experience.

    A very surreal place to visit. It is everything people say it is and a must see. Very heart moving. This is a must visit if you visit hawaii. It’s very educational. It’s also very emotional. People very freindly and helpful.

    Well worth the visit. Put years of history in perspective. Have a better understanding of both sides of the conflict. Coming to Honolulu- it’s a must see. It’s so well done- BUT – you absolutely must do this through a tour group because you get to check out other important sites like Punchbowl Memorial and the statue of King Kamehameha the Great.
