The program includes a 23 minute film about the December 7th attack, a Navy operated shuttle boat to the USS Arizona Memorial, and time on board the Memorial.

You will then tour the other Pearl Harbor Memorials including the USS Bowfin SubmarineBattleship Missouri Memorial and the Pacific Aviation Museum.  All admissions are included.

At the USS Bowfin Submarine, you will go below decks of this amazing WWII submarine and see the cramped conditions that the brave submariners experienced.  Nicknamed the “Pearl Harbor Avenger”, the Bowfin was commissioned on December 7th, 1942 exactly one year after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

On the Battleship Missouri Memorial, enjoy a guided tour through the ship. See the massive guns, the kamikaze dent, and the site of the Japanese surrender ending WWII.

The guided tour of the Pacific Aviation museum will fascinate you with stories about aviation at Pearl Harbor and throughout the Pacific since then. Learn about the Ni’ihau incident.

Before returning to Kona, your tour includes a narrated drive through the historical district of Honolulu and Punchbowl National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.  For a convenient tour from the Big Island to Pearl Harbor, this is your best choice.

Know before you book:

  • We encourage visitors to not bring bags to Pearl Harbor. There is often a line to put your bag in storage and to retrieve it. Standing in this long line may prevent you from getting your tickets for the Arizona Memorial. That is a mistake that you do not want to make.
  • The fee for baggage storage at Pearl Harbor is $5.00.
  • Tour buses do not permit guests to leave bags in the vehicle.
