Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Stand at ground zero of the infamous attack and gaze up at a sky once filled with enemy planes. This is the place where history was made.

Stops and drive-by sites on the Salute To Pearl Harbor may include:
• World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument
• USS Arizona Memorial (temporarily closed)
• Historic Downtown Honolulu
  • See the exhibits at the WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument
  • Enjoy a short boat trip to see the USS Arizona memorial with a guide (temporarily closed)
  • See Downtown Honolulu and hear about historic landmarks
  • Hassle-free round-trip transportation from hotels
What to Expect
*Attention: Due to safety issues involving the dock and visitor loading ramp of the USS Arizona Memorial, the Navy has suspended visitors to the memorial for an undetermined period of time while repairs are made. Visitors will receive a tour of Battleship Row, near the USS Arizona Memorial, by boat until further notice. All other amenities within Pearl Harbor remain open. We will keep you updated on the situation as it develops. Mahalo for your patience and understanding. Choose from a morning or afternoon departure and start the tour with a pick-up from your hotel. Make the journey to Pearl harbor in the comfort of a climate controlled vehicle. Your guide provides background and history on Hawaii’s role in WWII en route and then you arrive at Pearl Harbor, where you visit the WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument. Explore the exhibitions here and then take a short boat ride to see the USS Arizona Memorial where you can see the ruins of the sunken battleship beneath the memorial. Hear stories of the events leading up to US involvement in the war, and keep your eyes out for wild Green See Turtles and other marine life in the water. See Downtown Honolulu as your guide points out significant landmarks on the ride back to your hotel.

The driver was 45 minutes late! Every call to the office to check arrival status was met with a different excuse. The driver, K.C., actually mentioned he being tipped as we left the memorial. Very unprofessional! Never again!
