Product Description

This full Pearl Harbour experience tour will take you beyond the call of duty in luxury. Begin at the Pearl Harbour Visitor’s center where you see exhibits about the Pearl Harbour attack and the history of World War II. The three museums/exhibits at the WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument Visitor’s Center are a must-see for guests on this tour.

Your tickets for the USS Arizona Memorial program are included. The program starts with a 23-minute film highlighting the historical events of the attack on Pearl Harbour. After the movie, you will board a US Navy shuttle boat for a short ride in the harbour to the Memorial, built above the sunken USS Arizona Battleship, honoring the 1,177 men still resting within.

Next to the Pearl Harbour Visitor Center is the Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park. There, we will go inside the Bowfin submarine and see what life as a submariner was like. Bowfin is called the “Pearl Harbour Avenger,” a name given because she was launched on Dec 7th, 1942. The name was earned through her actions. The quarters were tight in this submarine, and you will appreciate the sacrifices sailors made when they answered the call to duty.

World War II ended when the Japanese signed the surrender documents on the deck of the Battleship USS Missouri.  You will visit this deck and explore beneath the decks on a guided, narrated tour. This is a highlight for many guests.

Near the Battleship Missouri, we will visit the USS Oklahoma Memorial before going to the Pacific Aviation Museum. Rated one of the best aviation museums in the country. the Pacific Aviation Museum is full of planes from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, as well as new additions that are currently in use by the United States Armed Forces.

After leaving Pearl Harbour, you’ll see more of Honolulu as your guide takes you to royal grounds and historic landmarks. The statue of King Kamehameha the Great, ‘Iolani Palace, Kawaiaha‘o Church, and Punchbowl National Cemetery of the Pacific are fascinating sites that you will see from the comfort of your luxury mini-coach. Are you ready to go beyond the call to duty?

    Well worth the visit. Put years of history in perspective. Have a better understanding of both sides of the conflict. Coming to Honolulu- it’s a must see. It’s so well done- BUT – you absolutely must do this through a tour group because you get to check out other important sites like Punchbowl Memorial and the statue of King Kamehameha the Great.

    No trip to Oahu would be complete without seeing this at least once. You really get a feel for the respect that Americans feel for their Military and we also got to speak to a Veteran of the war. I’m definitely not a history fan, but I enjoyed our visit to Pearl Harbour. The memorial is deeply moving, and it is really an educational experience.

    It has great and important history for us to always remember. We learned so much more by listening to the headsets rather than just reading the
    plaques and you felt you were there and could what those soldiers were going through. We were most impressed with the respect shown on the tour
    by everyone from all countries. Please do yourself a favor and see this entire memorial and learn about this important part of history.

    A great Stop with the Family to see and honor our Army.. We wanted them to see Hawaii is not just fun & beaches. Everyone visiting Hawaii should
    visit Pearl Harbour at least once. Very Moving experience.

    Highly recommend this tour, our guide was fantastic. He narrated and explained the whole lead up to the Pearl Harbour attack as well as telling us
    about Hawaii in general. Many men gave their life here and it is so moving to be there and learn about all that happened. Helps to appreciate life.

     The tour company was on time and great with instruction.  I went to the memorial the day after Memorial day so the ceremony flowers were still out, and everyone on the tour is very respectful.  We booked this trip prior to leaving UK and were very pleased with the experience – a truly humbling journey to a terrible frightening moment in history a very dignified tribute to real heroes and the survivors can also be buried with their shipmates when they pass on

    Having grown up in the 1950’s, Pearl Harbour was always a place I wanted to visit, particularly the Arizona Memorial. Memorable trip- it was set up well with lots of information and an amazing amount of memorabilia from Japan and the U.S- from the attack. The Bowfin submarine was very interesting – I recommend getting the audio.
