I’m not staying in Waikiki, can I take a tour?

Most Pearl Harbor Tours depart from Waikiki.  If you are staying in a private residence or at a hotel outside of Waikiki there are other options.

Sometimes it makes sense to drive or get a ride to Waikiki and start your tour from there. Most guests either park at the Honolulu Zoo or at Ala Moana Shopping Center. If you plan to go shopping or eat at the Shopping Center after your tour, Ala Moana Shopping Center is a good choice. The pick up will be across the street at the Ala Moana Hotel.

Tour companies are NOT allowed to meet guests at Pearl Harbor.

Windward & East Oahu

The best option for those staying on the windward side of Oahu (Kailua, Kaneohe) or on the East side (Hawaii Kai) is to take a tour from Waikiki. Simply state in the notes during checkout that you will meet us at the Honolulu Zoo or Ala Moana Hotel.

Ko’olina & Aulani Disney Resort

If you are staying at Koolina, including the Disney Resort Aulani, Waikiki is out of your way. But you are in luck. We now have tours available from Koolina and the Aulani Disney Resort.

North Shore

You can drive or take a taxi to Waikiki to start the tour. If you would like to be picked up at the Ala Moana Hotel or Honolulu Zoo, please indicate so on the checkout page. Visitors staying on the North Shore can drive to start a private tour from Turtle Bay Resort.

Kahala

Not all tours pick-up guests at the Kahala Hotel. Some charge a surcharge because it is about 15 minutes from Waikiki. Look at the tour options under the calendar on each tour to see if Kahala Pick-up is available. If not, check with us about the tour you want and we will let you know if we can arrange a pick-up.

Booking a tour when not staying in Waikiki

If you are staying in a vacation rental outside of Waikiki, you can indicate so on the checkout page. You can drive or take a taxi to Waikiki to start the tour. If you would like to be picked up at the Ala Moana Hotel or Honolulu Zoo, please indicate so on the checkout page.

What if I haven’t booked a hotel yet?

You can still book your tour. It is not necessary to wait until you have hotel reservations. In the meantime, you can list any hotel. For example, the Hilton Hawaiian Village.  Once your hotel arrangements are finalized, you can contact us to make the change to your reservation.

If you end up changing your plans, you can cancel your reservation. Most of our tours have a simple cancellation policy.  Only inter-island tours are non-refundable because they include flights.

Inter-Island Tours

We also offer tours from Maui, Big Island (Kona), and Kauai.  The Inter-Island tours include round-trip flights, airport pick-ups, and everything that the other tours offer.

    Hi My husband and I are doing a cruise to Hawaii in October 2019. We would like to do this tour (or one like it) but our ship doesn’t get to port until 9:00am
    We arrive on Friday October 25th from 9:00am-11:00pm. We would need transportation to and from the cruise port, as well as to the tour. Do you have any suggestions or recommendations?

    1. Pearl Harbor Reservations says:

      Aloha Keri,
      Many of our tours offer pickup at the cruise ship pier. See the individual tours for availability, or call one of our friendly agents at (+1) 808.626.5366. We look forward to seeing you on one of our tours in October!
