Pearl Harbor Passport

Anyone who spends time in Hawaii should make it a priority to go and see Pearl Harbor, the scene of one of the most important moments in American history, when Japanese warplanes brought havoc and death to over 2,400 Americans. You can easily spend a few hours learning about the events that led to active US involvement in World War II and paying respects to the men who died defending their country on that long-ago morning.

Real history enthusiasts and those who have a little more time should consider spending more than just half a day at Pearl Harbor and go for the complete experience. Most people know about the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center and the USS Arizona Memorial, but there’s much more to see in the vicinity. Don’t miss any of the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites and save yourself some time by using the Passport to Pearl Harbor, one ticket that grants you access to everything there is to see at Pearl Harbor.

Overview of the Passport to Pearl Harbor

This complete package includes admissions and audio tours, available in nine different languages. Transportation is not included. However, it is easy to get from Waikiki to Pearl Harbor, either by taking the quick drive in your own car or catching one of the many buses going directly there.

Your first stop is the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. Be sure to arrive early in the day to collect your free Arizona Memorial timed program tickets. More than 1300 tickets for the Memorial are given out at no cost every day. It pays to show up early to make sure you get yours. Memorial tickets are available at no cost and not part of the Passport to Pearl Harbor offer.

Pearl Harbor Visitors Center Ticket Booth

You can redeem your Passport to Pearl Harbor at the Visitor Center ticket booth. The Visitor Center opens at 7:00 AM daily.

Audio tour of the Arizona Memorial

The Memorial is more than just a place of remembrance and reflection. It also marks the final resting place for the more than 1,100 men who died aboard the USS Arizona on the morning of December 7, 1941. There are many important facts and interesting information to learn about the Arizona, the Memorial and the surroundings.

Arizona Memorial Wall

Learn all about it with your own audio guide in English, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French, Italian, German, Russian, or Spanish. The 2.5 hours narrated audio tour includes the Visitor Center’s two museums, then takes you to see the outdoor displays and Pearl Harbor shoreline, the Path of Attack tour and much more. The audio guide even translates the 23-minute documentary film in your chosen language (Italian and Russian translations of the film are currently not available).

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Pearl Harbor was our number one priority to see while visiting the island of Oahu. What an amazing tribute. We were staying in Waikiki so the round trip transportation helped out huge! The visitor center is very interactive, with many different things to do: walk along a path, reading signs, watching a movie, going to see the sunk ships (the main attraction, absolutely HEARTBREAKING – to realize their bodies are still locked in!). We learned tons that day.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Visiting will enlighten you about the stories and valor of those who perished as well as those who survived. if you are a history buff or a vet or anything in between, you will thourly enjoy this. I did the whole thing around the area, such as ford field and uss mo. it was very worth while.

  3. Rated 4 out of 5

    This memorial is certainly something to experience firsthand. Not living during that time, this center certainly brings you back to that defining moment in US history. I would suggest preparing yourself before going. Remember that many people lost their lives that day. It’s not exactly a happy place, but going there left me feeling grateful for those that were fighting for this country.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    This was one of the best historical sites I’ve visited in the world. Short, informative and rich with emotion. Loved the USS Arizona and the Missouri. The USS Bowfin is a WW2 submarine and noted how cramped it was, if you suffer from claustrophobia, this is definitely not the job for you! Very, very moving!

  5. Rated 3 out of 5

    Got a chance to meet a World War 2 Veteran and Survivor when we got back to shore. The only thing that made our trip was short due to a storm coming in and we had to return back to shore early. Could recommend solely on the basis of getting a good understanding of what happened there, but I don’t need to – the experience was meaningful and pleasant. events.

  6. Rated 4 out of 5

    Spent a whole day doing the Pearl Harbor tour. First was a visit to the USS Arizona memorial. A moving experience knowing that the ship contains so many souls. A must see and since they have done up the place, there are more educational facilities. Honor the past by remembering what they have done for us.

  7. Rated 5 out of 5

    We were enthralled with the submarine, the Bowfin. Such a small ship with its claustrophobic confines to pack such a punch under the oceans. I found this experience extremely moving from start to finish. There is a video shown prior to departing for the USS Arizona that is very informative. Enjoyable tour.

  8. Rated 5 out of 5

    A beautiful memorial to honor the men and women that lost their lives at Pearl Harbor. Beautiful grounds, nice boat ride, very very nice.I went here with my family and friends. Pearl Harbor is incredible. So much history in one area. If you are visiting Honolulu, you have to visit this. From the USS Arizona Memorial to the USS Missouri Battleship to the USS Bowfin Submarine…so much to see.

  9. Rated 5 out of 5

    The USS memorial commemorates the attack and battleship missouri symbolises the end of WW2, this tour is highly educational for kids and adults alike its well organised and serene place to honour all that was stationed here during that period. The Visitor Center at Pearl Harbor is much bigger than the last time I visited – there’s much more info on the events leading up to the war, more details on the day of the attack and the aftermath.

  10. Rated 4 out of 5

    The USS Arizona is still referred to as an active war ship because the sailors are still on board. Present this day was a surviving sailor who had been at Pearl Harbour on the 7th of December 1941. We also stood on the deck of the USS Missouri, a WW2 battleship where the Japanese surrendered to the allies thus ending WW2.

  11. Rated 5 out of 5

    What you get to see on this tour: USS Bowfin Submarine , Battleship Missouri , Arizona Memorial , Pacific Aviation Museum! Seriously, so much to see and learn at Pearl Harbor. All battleships are amazing and was blown away, no pun intended, at how the Japanese used manned torpedoes! While it’s a humbling tour, I’m very happy that I did it and learned more than expected about this piece of war history. R.I.P. To our fallen heroes.

  12. Rated 4 out of 5

    The visit to the memorial itself is well done – you have time to absorb the significance/pay your respects but the groups are kept moving efficiently so everyone has a chance to make the trip. Read and heard a lot about this historic location and it significance in WW 2. Walking around the exhibits up close and reading about the history brings added dimension of understanding and appreciation of those momentous events.
