Pearl Harbor Full Day Tour From waikiki & Maui 

Know Before You Go

Strollers

Strollers are allowed in the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, but not in the theater. You will be able to leave your stroller by the entrance of the theater and pick it up at the end of your program. Please keep in mind that this means you will have to hold your child for the duration of the program (about an hour and 15 minutes).

Restrooms

We have restrooms located throughout the visitor center. Please keep in mind that there are NO public restrooms on the USS Arizona Memorial. That means that for the duration of the program (about one hour and 15 minutes), you will not have access to a bathroom. Please plan accordingly.

Food

Other than clear bottled water, there is NO food or drinks allowed in the theater, on the shuttle boats, or at the USS Arizona Memorial. However, food and drinks are allowed at the visitor center, which has a small snack shop with sandwiches and drinks. The nearby USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park has a small cafeteria with soup, nachos, and hotdogs. There is a restaurant at the Pacific Aviation Museum, and the USS Missouri Battleship has a lunch truck. There are also many restaurants a short drive away from the visitor center.

Bags

While cameras, water bottles, wallets, and other small items can be brought on site, no bags (or other items that offer concealment) are allowed at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. However, there is a bag storage facility, located at the USS Bowfin Submarine Park shuttle bus stop, where you can store your belongings for a fee of $4 per bag.

Dress Code

Visitors are reminded that they are visiting a site of tremendous loss of life in service to our country. Sandals are permissible, but bathing suits or profane T-shirts are not allowed. Military visitors to the memorial are within the bounds of Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, and military regulations relating to military dress are enforced by Navy personnel. Per the Pacific Commander, military visitors in uniform are required to dress in Class B or better in order to gain access to the USS Arizona Memorial. Battle dress uniform is not allowed on the memorial, though it is allowed throughout the visitor center and at sites on Ford Island. Military visitors are welcome to wear civilian clothes when they visit.


First The Tour To the Arizona Memorial :

The USS Arizona Memorial, at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, marks the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors and Marines killed on USS Arizona during the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and commemorates the events of that day. The attack on Pearl Harbor and the island of Oʻahu led to the United States' direct involvement in World War II. The 75-minute program for the USS Arizona Memorial begins at Pearl Harbor Memorial Theater. It includes a brief introduction, a 23-minute documentary film, a Navy-operated shuttle boat ride to the USS Arizona Memorial, and time to experience the Memorial itself.

Second, in order to get the most out of your Passport to Pearl Harbor experience, pickups between 7:00 AM and 9:00 AM, because seeing all the sites will take you 6-8 hours. Here's why.   The USS Arizona Memorial program and narrated tour takes two and a half hours, and is the only thing that is time specific. Please refer to the ticket time you chose. 

The Battleship Missouri is a 10-minute shuttle ride away on Ford Island (the shuttle ride is included in the ticket price). It's a self-paced tour, but it's a huge battleship, so depending on how much you want to see, it can take anywhere from one hour to a few hours.

The Pacific Aviation Museum is also located at Ford Island. Like the Battleship Missouri, it is self-paced but generally takes at least an hour. It could take much longer depending on your interests.

The USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park is located near the visitor center, to the right of the ticket desks. It takes about an hour to tour the submarine, with more time required for the museum.

Please fill in time for lunch, bathroom breaks, and travel between sites.

Keep in mind that all sites and the visitor center itself close at 5:00 PM during the summer months. From September to May, the Battleship Missouri closes at 4:00 PM.   If you aren't able to see all the sites in one day, the Passport can be used for a second day within a consecutive seven-day period. To extend your Passport, simply check into the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites ticket counter, located in the courtyard of the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. There is a $10 fee per adult ticket ($5 per child ticket) for this service.   Finally, please remember that any other Passport offers you may find online will NOT include the free USS Arizona Memorial program ticket (documentary, boat ride to the memorial, and time at the memorial). The only place you can buy a passport that also includes a free USS Arizona Memorial program ticket is here.
