The Complete Pearl Harbor Experience from Kona, Hawaii
About Your Tour
Travel back in time and immerse yourself in the most comprehensive Pearl Harbor tour available today. The tour includes all four main sites plus the museums and waterside exhibits at Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. Relive key moments of this historic global conflict, from the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor that propelled the U.S. into the war, to the September 2, 1945 Japanese surrender that ended WWII.
This momentous day begins at the USS Arizona Memorial. Watch the moving documentary and learn about the 1,177 seamen who perished when the Japanese bombed and sank the USS Arizona. Ride the Navy vessel out to the iconic white Memorial suspended over the sunken battleship – the final resting place for these lost heroes. Witness the names and ranks of these brave seamen etched in marble on the Remembrance Wall in the Shrine Room. Look into the harbor and watch the oil droplets – “The Black Tears of the Arizona” – that continue to rise from the sunken battleship after nearly eight decades.
You’ll go aboard the USS Missouri – the “Mighty Mo” – and stand where the Japanese surrendered while the ship was in Tokyo Bay, Japan on September 2, 1945. Learn about the dent caused by the crashing Kamikaze pilot, note the massive guns capable of firing shells over 20 miles, and hear about the Mighty Mo’s five decades of service.
Tour the USS Bowfin Submarine — the “Pearl Harbor Avenger” — launched one year after the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1942. Go below and experience life in a WWII era sub, visit the museum, and honor the lost seamen and submarines at the waterfront memorial.
You’ll also visit Pacific Aviation Museum on Ford Island, housed in two historic aircraft hangars and the control tower that survived the December 7, 1941 attack. Note the bullet holes from the Japanese attack and enjoy fascinating exhibits of vintage and modern aircraft. Step into the Combat Flight Simulator and get involved in a dogfight with an enemy aircraft or try to land on an aircraft carrier.
The exciting adventure concludes with a tour through Historic Downtown Honolulu. Our expert guide will share stories about Hawaii’s royal family while pointing out famous regal landmarks including Iolani Palace, Kawaiahao Church, and the statue of King Kamehameha the Great.
