If you are staying on the Big Island and want to visit Pearl Harbor, on Oahu, this one-day inter-island tour is the perfect solution. This Kona to Pearl Harbor Memorial Tour includes round-trip airfare, admissions, and transportation on Oahu.
Depart Kona on a 40-minute flight to Honolulu International Airport, where a 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.
You will then tour the other Pearl Harbor sites, including the Bowfin submarine, Battleship Missouri and the Pacific Aviation Museum. All admissions are included.
At the Bowfin submarine, you will go below decks of this amazing WWII submarine and see the cramped conditions that the brave submariners experienced. Nicknamed the “Pearl Harbor Avenger,” Bowfin was commissioned on December 7th, 1942 exactly one year after the attack on Pearl Harbor.
On the Battleship Missouri, enjoy a guided tour through the ship. See the massive guns, the kamikaze dent, and the site of the Japanese surrender ending World War II.
The guided tour of the Pacific Aviation Museum will fascinate you with stories about aviation at Pearl Harbor and throughout the Pacific since then. Here, you can learn about the Ni’ihau incident.

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.
