      Highlights
      • Arizona Memorial Visitor Center: Hop on board one of the U.S. Navy launches to get a closer look at the poignant and somber living memorial to the sailors and marines who fell when the mighty Arizona was attacked and sunk to the harbor floor. This iconic ship suffered 3 near misses and 4 direct hits during the Pearl Harbor attacks.

      • Hotel pick-up included: We'll come get you from select Waikiki hotels.
      About this Honolulu Tour

      The air defense sirens began their shrill wailing at approximately 8 A.M. on the morning of December 7, 1941. Its immediate impact was not apparent to the sailors eating their breakfast in the mess of the U.S.S. Arizona. After weeks of false alarms and training drills in the lead up to war, the cobwebs of constant vigilance dulled the men's senses. The cobwebs quickly fell away however, as distant explosions sounded outside the ship, and closer in, rapid machine gun fire shattered the peaceful calm of that Sunday morning. America was at war.

      The Arizona Memorial and Punchbowl Tours brings the memories of this poignant history to life in a 5-hour tour that carries you first to the Pacific naval base that was at the heart of the Japanese storm that crashed above the decks of the U.S.S. Arizona on that morning. Board a U.S. Navy launch that will carry you across the harbor to the vessel, which is home to the 1,177 sailors that went down with their ship on the "Day that Will Live in Infamy."  Following your moving visit to the Arizona Memorial, you will be driven to the Courts of the Missing and the Punchbowl National Cemetery for a tour that highlights, and pays tribute to the ultimate price paid by American servicemen and women.

      The history of Oahu is more than the sum total of one tragic day, however. The next portion of your tour reminds visitors of this fact as you board a luxurious wide body motor coach for a tour that takes you through Honolulu's historic district. In addition to driving by America’s only royal property, the Iolani Palace, you will also see the historic State Archives Building, Honolulu Hale and the Mission House Museum, as well as Kawaiahao Church, at one time the national church of the Hawaiian Kingdom, and popularly referred to as Hawaii's Westminster Abby but you won’t see any royal weddings here any time soon.

      What did Roosevelt know?

      One of the enduring conspiracy theories of modern times is the belief that President Roosevelt knew in advance of the proposed Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. What the president knew, as many others did, was that Japanese would strike somewhere in the Pacific; the most realistic estimation was that the blow would strike in the Philippines, or the Dutch-controlled Southeast Asia. On the morning of December 7th, Japan attacked all three of those targets, and many more but no one expected Japan to attack everything on the menu that morning.
