Product Description

Experience every memorial site and museum Pearl Harbor has to offer by selecting the Pearl Harbor Memorial Tour. With knowledgeable tour guides and all admission fees included, you will have time for reflection and the ability to immerse yourself in history without worrying about the logistics.

Pearl Harbor Memorial Tour Flags

The morning commences at the World War II Valor in the Pacific Pearl Harbor Visitor Center where you can stroll through the galleries and enjoy the interactive exhibits. You will be shown a 23 minute documentary which includes dramatic footage taken on December 7, 1941, setting the tone for your visit to the first memorial.

A Navy vessel will shuttle you to the pristine USS Arizona Memorial, constructed directly above the mid-section of the sunken ship. You will be able to observe the oil that continues to leak from the ship and dissipates at the surface, known as the “Black Tears of the Arizona.” We encourage you to take a private moment at the Remembrance Wall to honor the 1177 lives lost during the surprise attack.

USS Bowfin Submarine in the Morning

Launched exactly 1 year after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the USS Bowfin was aptly nicknamed the “Pearl Harbor Avenger.” While on board this submarine, imagine military life during battle as you wander through the narrow corridors.

With a fully guided tour, explore the 5 decks of the USS Missouri, the last battleship built by the United States. As you stand on Surrender Deck, envision General Douglas MacArthur’s signing of the treaty that ended WWII.  Overlooking the massive guns of the “Mighty Mo,” you’ll have a spectacular view of the Arizona Memorial.

Located just outside of the “Mighty Mo,” you’ll find the USS Oklahoma Memorial, a tribute to the 429 men who lost their lives when the ship capsized in Battleship Row.

USS Battleship Missouri

After experiencing the naval aspect of the war, we turn to the air. With the Ford Island control tower and two hangars full of historical aircraft, the Pacific Aviation Museum is considered one of the top 10 aviation attractions in the nation. The blue glass windows in the hangars on Luke Airfield are still riddled with the bullet holes from the Japanese attack.

After a full day at Pearl Harbor, relax on the air conditioned bus as it takes you to Punchbowl National Cemetery, a military cemetery built in the remnants of an extinct volcano. Leading up to the memorial are the Courts of the Missing where the names of the missing Americans from World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War are inscribed. At the top of the staircase, a statue of Lady Columbia, looks over all those who have serviced the United States.

Iolani Palace Honolulu

Before heading back to your hotel, you will see the Hawaii State Capitol Building and ‘Iolani Palace, the home of Hawaii’s Kings and Queens until 1893. You will also stop at the King Kamehameha Statue, a towering 18 foot tall bronze statue commissioned in honor of King Kamehameha I, a great warrior who united the Hawaiian Islands into one royal kingdom in 1810.

Remember our heroes and experience everything Pearl Harbor has to offer on the Pearl Harbor Memorial Tour. Round-trip transportation to your hotel, admission fees & live expert narration by our professional guides are all inclusive.

    :

    The most advanced multimedia expereinces await you at the all -new Pearl Harbor exhibits. Not only the launching point for the boats to the Arizona Memorial, the no-cost movie explaining the morning of December 7th, 1941 and what lead to that “day that will live in infamy.” Pearl Harbor is part of History and should be seen by all.

    :

    Excellent way to see the important memorials and museums around Pearl Harbor, including the USS Arizona, the USS Bowfin, and the USS Missouri. This tour is a MUST if visiting Oahu. They pick you up at your hotel and we felt like the guide knew everything! Learned some new facts about the attack. There was a lot to see, but we’re glad we did it.

    :

    An amazing attraction. Very moving and historical. A definite “must see”. get there early as you won’t want to waste a minute of your day in this paradise. This memorial was much more than I expected, and I do recommend that every American pays their respects to those sailors of the USS Arizona.

  4. 5 out of 5

    :

    11 hours! Totally worth it though. I think I know everything abou the attack and can actually become a professor. lol. All joking aside I feel privileged that I got to learn about our fallen heroes. Our tour guide was hilarious and knowledgeable. If you’re coming to Oahu, don’t pass up this important moment in history.

  5. :

    Does this tour visit the monument for the USS Nevada?

    • :

      Like the USS Utah Memorial, the USS Nevada memorial requires military access. The monument for USS Nevada is located at Hospital Point and there are not any tours that visit that site.

  6. :

    what ages require an ID?

    • :

      Children younger than 18 don’t need to show ID. Please note that ID’s are very rarely requested at Pearl Harbor.

    This was a very good choice for us. Picked up from our hotel as promised. Our guide was very informative. She gave a good talk on the way to Pearl Harbor. When we got there we did not have to wait in line. All of our tickets were taken care of. This alone was worth it. Very happy with this tour.

  8. 4 out of 5

    :

    Very moving and emotional experience. Pictures aren’t allowed outside on the way into the memorial but you can take them from inside the memorial and when you are exiting the memorial.  You will be provided with an enriching educational and patriotic experience. There are 28 locations from the Visitor Center to the USS Arizona Memorial and museums. The great way to learn about this history. This is outdoor and indoor (Museum part) activities.

    :

    Not only is it a moving memorial to a tragic day, the exhibits and interpretative displays are terrific. Somber but brilliantly designed historical monument and museum. Just don’t be the stupid tourist here,silence and respect rules and the dead. 

  10. 4 out of 5

    :

    Well organized for a lot of visitors and it gets a lot! You can spend the day or visit specifics but the Arizona memorial film and visit is a must. It leaves a lot to the imagination as one wonders what if they did not discount the incoming planes as american how history would have changed.

  11. 4 out of 5

    :

    It is very organized and there are lots of displays and information to tell you the complete history of Pearl Harbor. A few ignorant people disobeying cell phone rules and areas of silence can ruin it for others. Don’t be that person.

  12. 3 out of 5

    :

    The USS Arizona memorial, a white building standing on top of where the USS Arizona sank and where hundreds of the crewmen still lay.  Spending a full day out in the Pearl Harbor, visiting all the memorials and the submarine is just a wonderful experience, though it can be tiresome.

  13. 5 out of 5

    :

    It’s a really eye-opening place. Didn’t make me angry at any people just made me really hate war all over again! Innocent people are always victims of war. A must see historical experience of WW11. The film shown before visiting the Arizona was extremely moving and informative..

  14. 5 out of 5

    :

    I was surprised to find myself feeling quite emotional, even surrounded by many other visitors to this site. I think everyone felt moved by the visit. This was a very interesting place to tour and learn about the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It is amazing some of the things you learn that you have never heard before and it really is such an amazing feeling knowing what all those people went through. It really is a must to visit. 

  15. 4 out of 5

    :

    The movie beforehand is a very worthwhile introduction to the site. My husband found it as emotional as the actual site. We had no connection at all with Pearl Harbour., but even so, the remembrance of those who died for us all, needs to be kept fresh. Very well laid out and much smaller area than I had originally thought. Very easy access if anyone in your party is elderly. Worth seeing as part of American history.

  16. 4 out of 5

    :

    The tour itself is long enough to be interesting and short enough to not get boring. You line up for your 10 minute video before getting on a ferry to head to the USS Arizona memorial. If you are on Oahu, you must go to Pearl Harbor. While it has become very commercialized, the history and facts are still there.

  17. 5 out of 5

    :

    Whether you are a history buff or just a tourist, do not miss visiting this national park memorial. It is sobering yet awe-inspiring to think of the courage and sacrifice of that day.  This is all about who we are as a people….we remember those that have sacrificed everything for their country.

  18. 5 out of 5

    :

    The visit to the memorial commences with a video which is very informative and provides a good background to the events before boarding the shuttle to the memorial. The memorial itself is a very humbling experience. Tastefully presented, beautifully maintained, a “must do”. From the Arizona Memorial to the Pacific Air Museum and the Battleship Missouri you don’t want to miss this important part of US History.

    :

    John Jr. was our tour bus driver and guide. He was great! He knew the history, sang to us twice and gave tips that turned out to be invaluable. A must when in Hawaii. There is so much to see that you w1ill need a day. There’s a gift shop and you can also meet some survivors from that disastrous day in December 1941.

  20. 5 out of 5

    :

    Naturally, if you are visiting Oahu for the first time, you should visit Pearl Harbor/WW II Valor in the Pacific. However, this memorial park is so well done, you may find yourself visiting on return visits, too. Can’t say thank you to the lost souls enough..

  21. 4 out of 5

    :

    All bags have to be checked before entry including large camera cases and purses / handbags. The history associated with the attack is well documented and very interesting. The USS Arizona Memorial was surreal, seeing the oil still floating to the water’s surface. All other attractions i.e. USS bowfin, USS Missouri were awesome.
