Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Revisit key historic moments from World War II - from Japan's surprise attack on Pearl Harbor to its surrender aboard the battleship USS Missouri - on a tour that pays homage to Hawaii's central role in the events that reshaped history. At the Pearl Harbor Visitors Center, an introductory video presentation highlights the events leading up to the Pearl Harbor attack as well as actual footage filmed in 1941. Then, board a Navy shuttle for a visit to the magnificent USS Arizona Memorial, a striking 184-foot-long site that rests above the sunken battleship, a solemn reminder of the 1,177 crewmen who rest within (75 were recovered, 1,102 remain entombed there.) Continue your travels to Ford Island and climb on board the USS Missouri battleship, or "Mighty Mo." Explore beneath the deck to see what it took for this grand ship to operate her massive gun turrets, and imagine the moment when the Japanese signed the surrender documents ending the war. Reflect on your visit to Honolulu's most popular and moving attractions as you return to the pier.

Special Notes:

Expect long lines and crowds when visiting the USS Arizona Memorial. The wait to view both the film at the Visitor Center and then to board the naval launch to the memorial can take approximately 1 3/4 hours.

On rare occasions the Navy may discontinue the motorlaunch service to the Arizona Memorial due to weather and safety concerns. If the launches to the Arizona Memorial are not operating, the visit to the Visitors Center will still be made to provide an opportunity to take pictures of the Memorial, attend the film in the Pearl Harbor Memorial Theater, visit the Exhibit Galleries as well as to tour Remembrance Circle and Submarine Memorial. For an additional cost, passengers may also choose to visit the USS Bowfin submarine.

U.S. Navy rules prohibit all bags larger than the size of a hand-held radio being transported in any vehicle to USS Missouri. Limited storage is available at the memorial for a small fee and no personal items may remain on the bus. Strollers are not allowed in the movie theater, on the Navy shuttle boat or on the USS Arizona Memorial. Swim suits and tank tops are not permitted at the Arizona Memorial.
