Pearl Harbor: USS Arizona Memorial & USS Missouri Battleship Tour from Waikiki
Conway was awesome. We remarked at the site that we were so happy to arrange this through a tour group. Didn’t have to worry about driving, getting tickets, or any lines. The van was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Highly recommend

USS Arizona Memorial & USS Missouri 6 Hours
We appreciated Trent’s knowledge of Honolulu throughout our tour. Walking around the USS Missouri was better than anticipated, you got to see living quarters and talk with the volunteers. Going to the USS Arizona site was very memorable. The visit to Pearl Harbor was 1st rate!

The USS Arizona memorial tour was great! We had more than enough time to walk through and to reflect. The USS Missouri tour was also good with plenty of space to explore. Auntie Mary was awesome! So full of personality and made the ride fun!

Both the Missouri and the Arizona. It was very moving understanding what was happening in the world at that time, and the heroes who perished on December 7th.

Pearl Harbor: USS Arizona Memorial & USS Missouri Battleship Tour from Waikiki
It was a very moving experience and I really enjoyed everything on the tour, Reynold was our tour guide and was excellent. He was incredibly knowledgeable of all things Pearl Harbor and Honolulu and gave us a great tour around the city. I would highly recommend this tour and would highly recommend Reynold.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Many of the battleship’s exhibits are on the deck of the ship, so make sure to bring sunscreen and a hat.

  • To save on USS Missouri admission (and admission to all Pearl Harbor historic sites), purchase the Passport to Pearl Harbor online, in advance of your visit.

  • Don’t miss the exhibit about WWII kamikazes or the dent on the ship, where a kamikaze pilot attacked.

  • The USS Missouri is wheelchair accessible, and wheelchairs are available for rent at the main entrance.

When to Get There

The USS Missouri Memorial is open daily from morning through late afternoon, with slightly extended hours in June, July, and August. The ship is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and Near Year’s Day. Pearl Harbor is one of Oahu’s most popular tourist sites, so it can get crowded. Arrive early in the morning or visit during the off-season (in spring or fall) to avoid crowds.

Other Pearl Harbor Sites

Pearl Harbor’s main draw is the USS Arizona Memorial, which marks the resting place of the Marines who were killed during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Visitors can also tour the USS Bowfin, a WWII-era submarine; learn about submarine history at the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park; and see a vast collection of WWII-era planes at the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum.
