Tour Description

For those of you who want a jam-packed day with everything Oahu has to offer, the Pearl Harbor & Circle Island Combo Tour is ideal. A professional local tour guide will educate and entertain as you ride in air-conditioned comfort from destination to destination.

Spend your morning immersed in historical artifacts and interactive exhibits at the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument. A powerful documentary with actual footage taken on December 7, 1941 will prepare you for your visit to the USS Arizona Memorial.

USS Arizona Memorial Guards

A Navy boat will take you to the Memorial, constructed over the sunken battleship in the serene waters of Pearl Harbor. Take a private moment to honor the 1177 crewmembers lost on the “date which will live in infamy” as you read their names engraved on the marble Remembrance Wall.

After leaving the headquarters of the United States Pacific Fleet, you will pass Wheeler Field. In an effort to take control of the air, the first wave of Japanese pilots dropped approximately 35 bombs on the planes there, lined up like sitting ducks, wing-tip to wing-tip.

Heading toward Wahiawa, the lighter side of the tour begins. Cool off with a delicious pineapple DoleWhip® as you browse through the Dole Plantation country store or feed the koi in the fishpond at the edge of the garden.

The coastline of the fabled North Shore promises photo opportunities galore. During the winter, swells can reach 25 feet, making Sunset Beach, Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay the best locations for world-class surfers to show off their skills. Walk barefoot through the fine sand and relax as you breathe in the ocean air.

The panoramic views of the Koolau Mountain Range await you at the Pali Lookout. In 1795, King Kamehameha united the Hawaiian Kingdom by forcing his enemies over the steep cliffs in the Battle of Nu’uanu. Nature seems to encapsulate the strength of the battle – try leaning into the wind to see whether the powerful gusts will hold you up.

Nuuanu Pali Lookout

The South Shore is home to the famous Makapu’u and Sandy Beaches where locals go to spend the day boogie boarding and body surfing. Along the coast, the tour stops at Halona Blowhole, a naturally-formed underground lava tube that shoots sea spray up like a geyser during high tide.

Hanauma Bay, the most popular snorkeling spot, boasts an enormous living coral reef full of tropical fish and other marine animals. On a clear day, you may be able to see the islands of Lanai and Molokai from the lookout.

Hanauma Bay Beach

Your tour will wrap up with Diamond Head, often shown as the iconic backdrop of Waikiki on TV and in the movies. This National Natural Monument is a popular hiking site, created from a single, explosive eruption.

When there are so many things to see and do in Hawaii, don’t waste time waiting in lines, worrying about admission fees and looking for parking. The Pearl Harbor and Circle Island Combo Tour enhances your experience with expert narration and lets you check off your “must do” island experiences.

    Pearl Harbor was humbling and the places around Oahu were beautiful. I think I want to move here! We had Matt as our guide and he did an excellent job of taking us to see and stop at many great sights. Including a few sights that were not on the initial itinerary.

    If you want to know about Oahu, this tour is a must. Our guide was Bruce, a retired school teacher and passionate Hawaii encyclopedia. If we had just seen the sights, the tour would have been good enough, but Bruce’s excellent and hilarious commentary made it extra special. What a scenic island. Happy to knock Pearl Harbor off the bucket list.

    We had a fantastic time on this all inclusive tour. Our guide was Matthew and he was so informative and entertaining. The tour size of 25 people was very good and bus was roomy, didn’t feel squeezed in. This is the perfect tour to see Pearl Harbor and fun sights around Oahu. We were on Oahu for a short amount of time. Can’t say enough about how much fun we had.

    Wife & I took this tour. Totally worth it & awesome! It’s a great taste of the things Oahu has to offer. I have to admit that this not only met, but exceeded my expectations. We had brought down my grandfather, a World War 2 veteran, to Hawaii as he had not been there since the war. Cousin Shannon was more than happy to help my grandfather even after his scooter had died.

    Wes was super cool. He provided a very detailed, educational, and not to mention, fun tour of Oahu. I really couldn’t have asked anything more from a tour guide. Pearl Harbor and North Shore were my favorites.
