While you explore the grounds of the Visitor Center, your guide will stand in line for tickets to the USS Arizona Memorial for you, allowing you more time to explore.

Truly an unforgettable voyage.

    We are Australians so this is not our history but even then, it’s a rewarding journey down memory lane to see the history Japan and USA share and how Hawai’i played a part! A great place to remember what happened in the past. A place to say thank you for all that have served and are serving.

    Makes you thankful for the freedoms that we have and the cost that it came at. This memorial site is governed by both the Park Service and the US Navy. The Navy will take you out on a boat to see the sunken USS Arizona.

    There is a very interesting film about the event at the theater before taking the boat ride, giving you a much better understanding of the event and the total breadth of the disaster.  Sadly, the memorial building is not accessible as this time. But the artifact buildings are amazing. And they still take you out to the Arizona which is visible under the water.

    Beautifully presented memorial to the soldiers who died at Pearl Harbor. You can walk around the grounds and it’s very informative. The museum has all kinds of exhibits teaching facts about the attack that you never learned in history class.

    Great for history buffs. It is a little haunting and you need to be very respectful. Great testament to those who lost their lives and the patriotism that Americans show. Have been before and would go again.

    Wow, was so ecstatic that we got to fit this in on our trip to Hawaii! We had enough time to see everything at Pearl Harbor and then got to see the Punchbowl Cemetery. Proud of our country and happy to pay respects to our fallen heroes. RIP

    It was well worth the money and we would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see it ” all” in one day. It was so nice to have everything scheduled and carefully planned out, including the flights to and from Kona and tickets for each attraction.

    Excellent tour and great value for money. Definitely the highlight of my time in Hawaii. My tour guide was Tavita, he was warm, friendly, very informative and very funny!  The tour was well organised and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has not been to the island before. At 8 hours long, this tour covered a lot of ground. If you are staying on the Big Island and are really interested in Pearl Harbor and related attractions you want this tour.

    Even though we were staying on the Big Island, this tour is worth every penny! Our tour guide, Kevin, was full of energy and very knowledgeable. He did a great job at making the tour interesting and fun. Early start needed but essential. Excellent tour guide kept us fully informed & entertained.

    As our stay in Hawaii was on the Big Island we had to get up mighty early, at 3 a.m., in order to fly to Oahu for our tour. The scheduled flight was with Hawaii Airlines, and we have to say this by far is the sweetest of all airlines that we have ever flown. We were able to check Pearl Harbor off our list. What an enlightening experience. The two new museums were great. Doing them first provided a lot of background about the attacks. The film them the tour of the USS Arizona was very moving.
