Description

Pearl Harbor Passport

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.

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. Remember to show up early; tickets for the USS Arizona Memorial timed program are given out at a first come, first served basis. Allow eight to ten hours for your tour of all the attractions Pearl Harbor has to offer. You can park your vehicle free of charge near the Visitor Center. As you will be visiting a restricted military area, remember to bring your government-issued ID card.

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 tickets are not for sale and therefore not included in the Passport to Pearl Harbor. However, 1300 tickets are given out for free every day on a first come, first served basis, beginning at 7:00 a.m. Please make sure you grab yours as soon as you arrive. 

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).

The Passport to Pearl Harbor does not include tickets for the USS Arizona Memorial movie/boat program.  Those tickets are free and handed out on a first come first served basis. The audio tour, which is included, incorporates the movie, boat and Memorial.

Round-trip transportation to Ford Island

The Battleship Missouri, Pacific Aviation Museum, and Oklahoma Memorial are situated on restricted-access Ford Island. Your Passport ticket includes free transportation to and from Ford Island.

Admission to the Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park

The Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park is a one-of-a-kind attraction that invites you to explore the interior of a real World War II-era submarine. The audio guide narrates the tour around the submarine, as well as the nearby museum. Please note that for safety reasons, children under four years old are not allowed inside the submarine.

You will be given a digital audio player that narrates your tour as you explore the Bowfin Submarine. Your narration continues as you visit the museum to explore the intriguing world of submarines, both past and present.

* Children under 4 are not permitted on the submarine for safety reasons. They may visit the museum and mini-theater at no charge.

Admission and Acoustiguide to the Battleship Missouri

On the Battleship Missouri you get to choose which tour is right for you. Do you prefer to take your time in a self-guided tour, would you like the Acoustiguide audio tour or do you feel best about joining a 35-minute Mighty Mo guided tour? Many visitors prefer the Mighty Mo guided tour, as it allows you to ask your guide questions and get the most out of your experience.

The Mighty Mo Pass includes admission and your choice of the following tours:

35-minute Mighty Mo guided tour
Acoustiguide audio tour
Self-guided tour

We recommend the 35-minute Mighty Mo guided tour. Having a live guide enables you to ask questions and be more involved in the experience.

Walk to the USS Oklahoma Memorial from the Battleship Missouri to pay respect to the men of the Oklahoma who lost their lives during the attack on Pearl Harbor.

A visit to the USS Oklahoma Memorial

From the Battleship Missouri you can easily walk to the USS Oklahoma Memorial to pay your respects to the 429 men who laid down their lives serving their country on the Oklahoma.

Admission and Audio Tour of the Pacific Aviation Museum

The third must-see place on Ford Island is the Pacific Aviation Museum. This is the newest museum at Pearl Harbor and is situated in two hangars that survived the attack in 1941. With the help of your audio guide, explore the hangars 37 and 79 to learn all about more than 70 years of aviation history. Your Passport ticket gives you full access to all of the exhibits, video presentations, and over fifty aircraft. For an extra fee, you can try out a combat flight simulator. Plan for some rest in the Museum and treat yourself to some refreshments or snacks at Laniakea Café.

The included audio tour is available in six languages: English, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Cantonese, and Mandarin.

We suggest that you allow eight to ten hours to complete your tour at Pearl Harbor. Please be aware that this tour does not include USS Arizona Memorial movie and boat tickets.

Know before you book:

  • Tour buses do not permit guests to leave bags in the vehicle.
