The tragic occurrences and subsequent world-changing events associated with this naval base make it a crucial part of American history and heritage. While the harbor is quite large, the Visitor's Center and Arizona Memorial are the hubs of tourism. Several tours are available through activity brokers or tour companies. To reach Pearl Harbor from Waikiki Beach, take Nimitz Highway past the airport to Highway 99, and continue past the naval community.
I didn't like the fact that we had to pay $10.00 per person to tour the Bowfin sub, 7 years ago it was free. As a Honolulu resident I think I should have gone on free. Where is all that money going to anyway?
i couldn't help but cry, when i saw all the names on the wall. i went two years ago and now have a chance to live in hawaii for the next 5 years. i will go back with my husband, daughter to see pearl harbor.
Do not miss going to Ford Island, I felt it brought things more to light of what it was like that day. Visiting the Utah and standing along the shore of battleship row was a very different view of the attack.
Have been to see The Memorial .First time in 1985,second,May 2006. When you can see the oil still leaking out,after all this time ,about a quart a day I was told,it makes you wonder about a lot of things while watching it.
This is a fantastic experience. It is free to go and extremely informative. You view the museum and take a short boat road out to the memorial. Takes about an hour. Make sure you get there in the morning before it gets packed.
Recomend to all my military friends to put this first on there list to visit.Im ex navy and lived in phoenix az for 25 years.Keep up the good work and thanks to all park service and us navy personnel.
This is a must see in Hawaii. It was such a touching moment to step onto the memorial. It is amazing to think that those sailors still lay beneath you in the tomb of the ship. I got goosebumps when I walked into the marble room with all the names carved in the wall. The smell of the gas only added to the effects. The movie at the beginning is such a wonderful touch to really let you into the story behind the memorial. It was a wonderful experience
Our visit to Pearl Habor was educational, moving, and an overall enlightening experience. We signed up for a tour which picked us up and took us there by 7:00am. There was aleady a line forming to get in. We were able to take great pictures. No bags or purses are allowed inside. We watched a brief movie documentary about the Pearl Harbor war. It was educational for our 13 and 9 year old kids. It's not a great place for real little ones who may not have the patience for this activity. Overall, a lasting memory for all who visit.
