USS Arizona and USS Missouri tour
This was my first visit to Hawaii!! Being an Army Brat and Wife it was important to visit the memorial and pay my respects to the grave site of the USS Arizona. This was quite an emotional experience for me and truly a blessing. Bill and Arlane were amazing! I highly recommend this tour!

Pearl Harbor: USS Arizona Memorial & USS Missouri Battleship Tour from Waikiki
Blake was excellent guide and driver. We really enjoyed all the info about the Oklahoma And Arizona. Punchbowl was another highlight of the trip. There wasn’t enough time to go thru everything at Pearl Harbor.. The only downside was being in the van and not requiring everyone to wear a mask during our rides. We take covid very serious and since we have compromised health issues, that was the only downside not related to what we saw.

Pearl Harbor USS Arizona Memorial & Battleship Missouri
Barney our guide was amazing. I had heard horror stories about companies not having tickets in advance for the Arizona and then having to wait in line for tickets but Kharma tours had it all taken care of. Barney walked us to each location and gave us great tips on how to schedule our day. Absolutely wonderful time. Barney also made sure to make a connection with my teenagers (no easy feat)!

The historical meaning to the country and to me personally. Looking in the water at the Arizona and seeing where their meals were prepared, feeling their sacrifice.

How to Get There

The USS Missouri is located on Ford Island. Visitors must arrive via the designated Ford Island visitor shuttle, which leaves from the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center and from the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum, or visit on a guided tour. Many full-day Pearl Harbor tours include round-trip transportation from Honolulu, Maui, or the Island of Hawaii.

Show all


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.
