Authentic Hawaii Historic Tour

To Remember a Historic Day

In remembrance of the lives lost at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, this thought-provoking memorial draws over 1.5 million guests every year to visit and to pay respects. This is a solemn place. It’s a place where 1,177 men lost their lives. When you stand viewing the sunken wreckage of the USS Arizona, you can still see oil leaking on the surface of the water. It’s a stark reminder of the historic event that took place in Hawaii that put the United States into the middle of World War II.

Pearl Harbor tours are meant to be events where people learn about Hawaii’s unique place in this historic war. It’s the place where Hawaii became a Pacific Ocean target on an early December day. The best Pearl Harbor tours give visitors a thoughtful glimpse into the United States’ role in the war as they let everyone get an up close, personal view of a historic battle ground.

Things You May Expect from Historic Pearl Harbor Tours

Many tour companies offer Historic Pearl Harbor tours, combined with visits to other significant historical sites on the island of Oahu. Places that are sometimes also included in a combination tour include a visit to King Kamehameha statue, Iolani Palace, the Hawaii State Capitol Building, and a Historic Downtown Honolulu City Tour. A visit to Punchbowl National Cemetery, the National Cemetery of the Pacific, is sometimes also included.

When you visit Pearl Harbor itself, you can also stop at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, which hosts about 5,000 people per day. You can browse the Pearl Harbor memorials and museums, listen to historic World War II narratives from this famous event, watch authentic film footage of these historic attacks and see fascinating displays of authentic war memorabilia that can only be seen at the Pearl Harbor location. The historic Pearl Harbor site features two interesting museums and outdoor displays where the education continues.

Friendly and Knowledgeable Tour Guides to Answer Questions

Questions and inquiries are encouraged, and friendly park employees and tour guides are happy to enlighten you about historic events that took place at Pearl Harbor and the displays you can visit while you’re there. The Pearl Harbour location is highly recommended for history, aviation and military buffs and for those who simply want to see the place where so much interesting U.S. history transpired.

The attack at Pearl Harbor was massive, and even more importantly, it was unexpected. There were some warnings, but for various reasons they weren’t taken seriously or were ignored. It was thought that Japan simply didn’t have enough resources available to carry out such an attack, and that the resources they had were depleted during other war efforts. Nobody was really sure whether the threats were credible or serious. More importantly, no one seemed to realize how much danger this area of Oahu was in, since a number of battleships were being housed nearby in what was known as Battleship Row.

A Place of Tranquility Became a Battle Ground

The USS Arizona was sunk right in the spot where the Pearl Harbor monument and museums are located. Not only can visitors see where the battle began, they can see where it ended. The war ended at the Battleship Missouri which is also located here. This is where the Japanese ultimately surrendered, putting an end to the war. December 7, 1941 is often called the Date of Infamy since it was the day that the tranquility of a beautiful Hawaiian Island quickly became a site of war.
