Want to visit Pearl Harbor, but you’re staying on the island of Kauai?
This is the tour for you. This one-day inter-island tour from Kauai to Pearl Harbor includes round-trip airfare, admissions, and transportation on Oahu. The flight from Lihue to Honolulu International Airport takes approximately 30 minutes and if you’re sitting on the left side of the jet you can see Pearl Harbor as you approach. When you arrive in Honolulu, a professional tour guide will greet you and begin your tour. A few minutes later, you will arrive at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center of the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument.
The Arizona Memorial portion of your tour includes a 23-minute film about the 1941 Japanese attack, a US Navy-operated shuttle boat to the memorial, and reflection time on board the majestic USS Arizona Memorial. Adjacent to the Visitor Center is the Bowfin submarine. Admission is included and you will go below decks on this historic WWII submarine. Bowfin has been called the “Pearl Harbor Avenger”and was commissioned exactly one year after the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Next, our tours are authorized to drive across the Admiral Clarey Bridge to Ford Island. Ford Island is an active Navy base, and has been used in several films including Battleship and In Harm’s Way with John Wayne. Battleship was filmed on the Battleship Missouri. This ship has a rich history. She entered WWII in 1944 and fought in the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa. The Missouri is the site of the Japanese surrender in Tokyo Bay,where World War II came to a formal end.
This tour includes a guided tour through the ship where you will marvel at the massive guns, look over the edge at a dent left by a kamikaze attack, and stand on the site of the Japanese surrender. The Pacific Aviation Museum is filled with WWII planes and stories about aviation at Pearl Harbor and the Pacific. New exhibits are always being added and the flight simulators are a blast.

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.
Pearl Harbor Oahu is not responsible for and does not extend financial reimbursement for delays caused by factors such as traffic, weather, mechanical issues, or problems concerning Navy-operated shuttle boats.
Tour stops such as the Arizona Memorial, Dole, Pali Lookout, and others are not under the control of this website or the tour companies going there. Therefore, we do not guarantee admission or entrance to any sites not in our control. Refunds are not issued if access to any tour stop is denied for any reason.
However, we will request a refund or reimbursement for visitors in such cases. When reimbursements and refunds are issued by third party vendors, we always give them to our customers.
Punchbowl National Cemetery of the Pacific is closed to commercial tours on Federal Holidays. Tours are unable to enter cemetery on those days.
As of May 2, 2011, all passengers traveling to Ford Island (including Pacific Aviation Museum and USS Missouri) must possess valid photo identification. This does not affect the Pearl Harbor Visitor’s Center.
Last minute bookings and high traffic dates may have more expensive airfare. If there is a premium cost for airfare on your date we will contact you to collect the additional charge.
