Pearl Harbor and Oahu Circle Island Tour
From Maui, Kauai or Big Island
Witness the History of Pearl Harbor with a Day Trip to Oahu!
Your full-day tour begins with a stop at Pearl Harbor, highlighted by the USS Arizona Memorial and the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. Learn the history of Pearl Harbor from your expert tour guide and take in the peaceful harbor that was tragically attacked on December 7, 1941.
Circle the island with your guide, taking in the beauty of Oahu throughout the day. We will make stops at Pearl Harbor, Dole Plantation, a Mac Nut Farm, Nuuanu Pali and various scenic overlooks and stops. We will stop for lunch at the Kahuku Sugar Mill so you can choose from many of the North Shoreʻs best food trucks.
Your day begins with a flight from Maui, Kauai or Big Island of Hawaii to Honolulu. Your personal guide will pick you up curbside at the interisland terminal. From there, we take you on a tour of Oahu with our first stop being Pearl Harbor. At this stop, we will check out the Visitor Center Museums and watch historic footage of the war. Afterward, we will take a boat ride out to the Arizona Memorial for up-close viewing.
You have one day to visit Oahu and we want to show you as much as possible. The top highlights include the Dole Plantation for some pineapple whip and then onto the North Shore to visit quaint towns, beautiful beaches and incredible ocean overlooks. Watch the surfers in action, tackling the big waves of some of the most iconic beaches that you have only seen in movies or hit TV shows.
There’s no better way to see the island of Oahu than with our Circle Island Tour. On this adventure, you’ll witness the diversity of the island including the lush rainforests of the Ko’olau Mountains and the iconic sandy beach of Oahu’s North Shore. Mix in some lore and history from our local guides, and you’re bound to have an unbelievable Oahu experience.
We end our day having a quick look at the city of Honolulu. The beautiful historic buildings, the national veterans’ cemetery at the Punchbowl, the incredible city overlooks and so much more dot the route that we take through this city. We even pass by the only royal palace in the United States, Iolani Palace.

We ask that visitors to the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites dress appropriately and respectfully by avoiding swimsuits. While sandals and flip-flops are permitted, we encourage you to wear closed-toe shoes as there is a lot of walking when visiting the sites. In addition, we recommend visitors avoid skirts and dresses as well as high heels.
No bags are allowed for security reasons, and iPad cases or clutch wallets are not permitted either — a wallet must be no larger than a regular-sized cell phone. The bag storage facility can store your belongings for a fee of $6.00 per bag or $7.50 per bag for more oversized luggage.
Thank you for helping us maintain a respectful and secure environment for all visitors.
Infrequently, due to circumstances beyond our control, the Navy may suspend boat operations to the USS Arizona Memorial, or they may need to restrict boat capacity. In these cases, we may place you in a standby line. We cannot offer refunds in this situation and apologize in advance should this occur. You would still be able to visit the exhibits, the Visitors’ Center, and other park monuments.
