If you’re a history buff and want to see Pearl Harbor, but are staying on the Big Island, then this is the tour for you. You will fly from Kona, on the Big Island, to Honolulu International Airport, which is a short drive from Pearl Harbor.
First, you will join our expert guide, who will give you all of the history and inside knowledge that surrounds Pearl Harbor, World War II, and the attacks of December 7, 1941. Located at Pearl Harbor are a number of mesmerizing exhibits and displays that you have to see. 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.
Board the USS Arizona Memorial and see the remains of the battleship from above. This is a very sobering and emotional experience and is something that everyone can appreciate. On board, you will see the oil that continuously leaks from within the ship, the Remembrance Wall bearing the names of all the fallen sailors of the Arizona, and hear stories and enlightening facts from a Park Ranger stationed on board. Truly an unforgettable voyage.
Located in the middle of Pearl Harbor is Ford Island, and the permanent home of the Battleship Missouri. You will embark on a guided tour of the decks of the famed battleship, celebrated as one of the most important vessels in US naval history. See the massive guns and learn the power of the ship where World War II was officially ended. In fact, your tour culminates on the Surrender Deck!

This Tour Includes Flights
The name you enter at the time of booking must be exactly as it appears on your valid, government-issued ID. Inter-island air carriers will deny boarding if the passenger name on their ID does not match the name on their voucher. This is a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and FAA requirement. Air Carriers found to be non-compliant are subject to severe penalties; thus there is no flexibility with this policy. A valid, government-issued ID (passport for all non-US citizens) is required on the day of travel. If a passenger is denied boarding, there will be no refund.
As you are probably aware, airline flight costs fluctuate often. Occasionally, by the time we receive your reservation, flight prices have increased. If this happens, we will give you the option of cancelling your reservation or paying an “overage fee” to cover the difference in flight prices. Once your reservation is confirmed, you will not be charged extra for flight price overages.
