Description

Start your day early, heading to Pearl Harbor to learn about the infamous moment in history that led the United States to enter World War II. Visit the USS Arizona Memorial (tickets included) and the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument. Explore the exhibits at the visitors center and experience the history, tragedy, and heroism of the attack that propelled the U.S. into World War II.

After leaving Pearl Harbor, you will pass through the center of Oahu and past Wheeler Airfield. As the Japanese began their attack on December 7th, 1941, they knew they needed to prevent US military planes from getting airborne. Before they hit Pearl Harbor, Wheeler Airfield was one of their first targets. After passing there you will find yourself heading toward the fabled North Shore.

Pearl Harbor Visitor Center

The famous Dole Plantation provides a refreshing stop. Feed the koi fish in the plantation fishpond or grab a sweet frozen pineapple DoleWhip® as you explore the gift shop.

Immediately feel the laid-back local rhythm of the North Shore as you pass through small towns. It is a perfect mix of surfing culture and island-style country living. Sunset. Pipeline. Waimea Bay. The shoreline’s famous names take on a colorful life as your guide shares fascinating local facts and tales.

As you go inland from the coast to the majestic power of the lush and rugged Koolau mountain range, you rise up to the final battlefield where King Kamehameha fought to unify the Hawaiian Islands. Standing high on the windswept Nuʻuanu Pali cliffs, you can feel its wild and tragic history, an ancient parallel to the morning’s Pearl Harbor stories of bravery in the face of aggression.

Waimanalo. Sherwood Forest. Makapu’u. Sandy Beach. These are the bodysurfing playgrounds that draw locals from all around the island. But beware, it’s not as easy as it looks! Seabirds soar above the island’s windswept coastline where ancient lava fields descend into the sea. Halona blowhole, a natural underground lava tube, funnels plumes of ocean water into the sky in syncopation with the sea. Hanauma Bay hovers on the eastern tip of the island, home to a living coral reef and safe haven for fish and marine animals.

Halona Blowhole Oahu

Early afternoon will find you turning back towards Honolulu, cruising around the slopes of Diamond Head, Hawaii’s most famous landmark. You will feel caught up in the diverse history and beauty of Oahu, brought to life by your expert tour guide.

Don’t forget your camera for photo opportunities galore. The young and young-at-heart will be entertained by island folklore and history shared by your tour guide throughout the day. The Pearl Harbor and Circle Island combo is the way to check off the “must do” Oahu island experiences. This is a tour we recommend for the whole family.

    We loved this “museum” and all the history available in one site. As we walked the grounds and visited the memorial, we were humbled by the plaques and artifacts available to peruse. Great way to learn about history and what actually happened. Left slightly sad but it was a great day out as we made it around the island of Oahu after. The mountains and beaches are just gorgeous here! Makes you want to never leave.

    Of course this is a moving experience. In my opinion you shouldn’t come to Oahu without visiting. We’ve been here twice now. The exhibits and very well done and maintained, of course the Arizona memorial is moving. After Pearl Harbor you tour the island and wow, it’s more scenic than I thought. Green mountains and cliffs that make phenomenal back drops to white sandy beaches. Just seeing Waimea Bay will make you want to live here.

    First of all our tour guide Joey was awesome! He knew so much about all of the sights and the Hawaiian culture. Of course it helped that he was born and raised in Hawaii, so it was great to have a local perspective. Tourists driving on their own don’t know where to go and what to do unless a local people help you out or you did a good research online. Pearl Harbor is a must see and learn all of the history! Super interesting and sad at the same time. Lots to see and do. Its amazing the quietness of the grounds here. After that our first stop was Dole Pineapple Plantation which gave us background on agricultural history of the islands on a train tour of the pineapple fields. Next we drove along the North Shore, stopping periodically at beaches to watch the surfers.

    I highly recommend this all-day tour for Oahu visitors. Our driver was very knowledgeable of local customs, people, and information, the coach was comfortable,  and we saw many tourist attractions! Pearl Harbor was humbling and Oahu was absolutely beautiful. Can’t wait to come back!

    This day trip was really enjoyable and gave us a good idea of places we may want to revisit later in our holiday. The tour covers Pearl Harbor & north east coast of Oahu. We got pick up at our hotel at outrigger Waikiki beach resort. It saves you trouble of driving around. Pearl Harbour and the Arizona Memorial are well worth a visit. The film that is shown, with real footage of the attack on Pearl Harbour, gives a very good overview. Going around the island I found the ride down the east side of the island had the most beautiful scenery. Our driver/tour guide was Kapena. Besides being very personable and funny he gave a great history of how Kamehameha united the islands into a kingdom and how the kingdom was taken over by American corporations.
