Where are the pickup points for the tour?

The are several different pickup points located in Waikiki for tour pickup. Once we know your hotel location, we will be able to assign you to the closest pickup location to your accommodations. We also offer pickup from the Honolulu International Airport in order to accommodate guests that are flying in from an Outer-Island in order to experience the Pearl Harbor tour.

I’m not staying in Waikiki? Can I still take the tour?

In this case, you simply need to meet the bus in Waikiki for your pickup. We have a very centrally located pickup point located right next to the most affordable all day parking in Waikiki. Contact our agents for more information about drive times and your specific considerations. If you are coming in from an outer-island, then we can pick you up from the Honolulu Airport.

What should I bring with me on the Pearl Harbor tour?

One very important consideration is that you ARE NOT ALLOWED to bring bags of any kind into Pearl Harbor… Including camera bags. While inconvenient, this is for security reasons. So, it is best to pack pretty light for your Pearl Harbor excursion. Cameras, phones, and other devices are welcome, but you need to be able to carry it on your person without any bags. We will provide Kona Coffee, cold water, and some special Hawaiian pastries. Plus, there are concessions available within the park. Wear comfortable clothes, and bring sunscreen and sunglasses.

Are there storage lockers available?

Yes! If you really need to bring a bag with you then you can rent a locker for the day to store your items. There is a fee of $5 USD for use of the storage lockers.

What island is Pearl Harbor on?

Pearl Harbor is located on the Island of Oahu. However, you can still visit if you are staying on an Outer-Island. We offer transportation to and from the Honolulu Airport.

What are the different monuments that are available for guests to visit during the Pearl Harbor tour?

There are different tour options that allow you to see only certain monuments, or all of the them depending on your preference and desired experience. The standard USS Arizona Memorial Tour (Half Day) also includes stops at the Punchbowl National Cemetery and the statue of King Kamehameha the Great. If you are participating the Arizona Bowfin tour or the Passport to Pearl Harbor (Full Day), then you will spend more time at Pearl Harbor visiting monuments. The full day tours do not include stops at Punchbowl or the Kam Statue.

Are there any days throughout the year when Pearl Harbor is closed to the public?

What if I’m staying on an outer-island like Maui or Kauai?

No problem! Many of our guests travel from outer islands in order to attend the Pearl Harbor tour.
