You won't be sorry if you take this tour!
Great tour and tour guide (Ozzie). Plenty of time to see and appreciate everything. Maybe a little more expensive but worth every penny.

Pearl Harbor: USS Arizona Memorial & USS Missouri Battleship Tour from Waikiki
This was such an enjoyable tour. Eli made it special due to the shoreside dock being closed at the Arizona. Small group size and very careful about Covid protocols.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • 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.

How to Get There

The USS Missouri is located on Ford Island.

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.
