Can I visit Pearl Harbor without a tour?

Yes, you can visit Pearl Harbor without a tour. But bear in mind that Pearl Harbor is a very busy place, and there are lots of different things to see and do there.

  • If you drive yourself—or take a taxi or bus—and decide once you’re there that a tour is a good idea after all, be aware that regulations prohibit tour operators from adding guests at Pearl Harbor.
  • Tours to Pearl Harbor include transportation, all of your tickets, and a professional narration. Your guide will help you to make the most of your time at Pearl harbor.
  • All tours include Arizona Memorial tickets. Often, those who drive themselves arrive at Pearl Harbor and wait in line to receive a ticket for 3 hours later, or worse, all tickets for the day are sold out.
  • If you want to visit the Battleship Missouri , the Oklahoma Memorial or the Pacific Aviation Museum, you really should take a tour. Only authorized drivers and vehicles are allowed to drive across the Admiral Clarey Bridge to Ford Island where those sites are located. Unless you have military ID and authorization, you will not be allowed to drive yourself there.
  • Parking at Pearl Harbor is limited, and may not be available when you arrive.

We offer a wide variety of Pearl Harbor tours for visitors of all interest levels.
