Pearl Harbor Tour Damage


On December 7th, 1941, the naval base at Pearl Harbor in South Oahu was attacked by Japanese forces. This surprise attack claimed the lives of 2,403 Americans and propelled the United States into World War II. 19 U.S. Navy ships were damaged or destroyed, including the fated USS Arizona, which sank to the bottom of the harbor with 1,777 servicemen still onboard. The USS Arizona remains in the harbor, and the memorial erected on the ship’s hull attracts more than 1.7 million visitors annually. Today, Pearl Harbor is home to numerous museums and monuments that honor the lives lost in 1941 and tell the story of the day that lives in infamy. Pearl Harbor is also still a fully operational naval base, home to 18,000 service members.


Wander through the colossal USS Missouri, walk through warplane hangars still dotted with bullet holes, pay respects at the USS Arizona Memorial, and learn about the 1941 events that influenced world history. This exhaustive tour offers a thought-provoking, in-depth look at Pearl Harbor. Throughout the day, you’ll visit each memorial and museum located within the harbor- each one as compelling as the last. In addition to visits to the USS Arizona and USS Missouri, this tour explores the USS Bowfin Submarine, the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, and the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum.


This comprehensive tour runs from 6:45 am to 4:15 pm and includes entrance to the museums and memorials and luxury transportation to and from Waikiki. Along the drive from Waikiki, you’ll also witness other historical Hawaiian landmarks, like the Iolani Palace, the King Kamehameha Statue, and the Hawaii State Capitol. In addition, there are numerous options for lunch within Pearl Harbor. However, you can opt for a pre-paid lunch at the Pacific Aviation Museum by booking ahead.

    A wonderful and humbling experience. I think every American visiting Hawaii ought to do this tour. You can’t really get the breadth of knowledge and truly understand the magnitude of this attack until you’ve been there. God bless our troops!

    This was powerful. War is such a waste and these monuments and the life lost here prove it. Very glad we went to pay respect..

    We bought 3 tickets through Tripadvisor only to not be put on the list when we met the shuttle. I’m livid and have not been refunded yet. I then booked through you and it was seamless. I’ve learned my lesson to not use them again. The tour was fantastic, and I’m glad we’re persistent.

    I think everyone visiting Hawaii should go to Pearl Harbor. It’s more than just seeing a beautiful place with a tragic history, but it also helps you understand the heart ache of the local community and resident military when this happened. It shaped this island, I’m sure. Thank you again for an informative and important trip.

    The tour guides were knowledgeable and passionate about what they were teaching us, which made it even more interesting and engaging for everyone. They showed us artifacts from the war, including bullets, shells, and guns that had been used during battle. We also got to explore various buildings at Battleship Row that had been damaged during the attack.

    Taking part in this Pearl Harbor tour was an incredible experience that will help me remember this important history. It gave me insight into one of our nation’s most devastating events while also providing historical context and valuable lessons about courage and sacrifice. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for an educational and sobering Hawaii side trip.

    We began at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, where we watched a short movie describing the events of December 7, 1941. We were then taken to the USS Arizona Memorial, which is located directly above the sunken battleship. On the memorial we heard stories about some of those who lost their lives on that fateful day. It was incredibly moving and thought-provoking. We also got to learn about other ships in Pearl Harbor and how they were involved in World War II. Highly recommend for history-buffs and any Americans.
