This private tour begins at the entrance of Turtle Bay Resort, where you will be greeted by our chauffeur and driven to Pearl Harbor.
As you drive to Pearl Harbor from the North Shore, your guide will share information about the history of Pearl Harbor and the fateful attack on December 7, 1941.
Upon arrival at Pearl Harbor, your guide will accompany you to the Visitors Center. After a brief orientation you will have your Arizona Memorial tickets in hand and begin your experience at the World War Two Valor in the Pacific National Monument.
This tour includes tickets to the USS Arizona Memorial, including the 23-minute film about the Pearl Harbor attack and the US Navy boat to the Memorial. First, check out the exhibits and artifacts at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, setting the scene, vividly depicting the events of December 1941. Then, watch the impressive film about the attack.
After the film, you will board a Navy shuttle boat to the Arizona Memorial. The impressive monument has three rooms, and you will have access to each. Look down to the sunken ship below and see the “black tears of the Arizona.”
A visit to the serene Arizona Memorial will definitely make your Hawaiian vacation more meaningful and memorable. The most visited attraction in Pearl Harbor, the USS Arizona Memorial floats above the sunken remains of the ship and serves as a reminder of the sacrifices of thousands of service members during the 1941 Japanese attack.
The solemnity of the memorial gives you a moment to honor the heroes of Pearl Harbor and reflect on the importance of their sacrifices.
After your visit to the Arizona Memorial, you will visit one of three other historic sites at Pearl Harbor. Choose between the Bowfin submarine, Battleship Missouri, or the Pacific Aviation Museum.
The most popular is the Battleship Missouri, affectionately nicknamed “Mighty Mo.” Board the battleship to see her massive guns and the surrender deck where WWII ended. A guided tour is included.
Alternatively, explore the Bowfin submarine or the Pacific Aviation Museum. The choice is yours.
A light lunch is available for purchase. Snacks can be purchased at all Pearl Harbor sites.
After a memorable day filled with fascinating historic sites and stories we will return you to Turtle Bay. This is a must-do when visiting Oahu.
