On this USS Arizona and Pearl Harbor tour, immerse yourself in the history of the attack which launched the United States into World War II. Experience the sobering memorial to the sunken USS Arizona, and learn fascinating details about the attack from your guide and the comprehensive museum.
After convenient hotel pickup, take an informative drive to Pearl Harbor. Listen as your guide provides a historical background on the day of the attack. On December 7, 1941, Japanese imperial forces launched a surprise strike on the US Navy stationed at Pearl Harbor, pushing the United States into World War II.
Tour the visitor center, which contains video footage taken the day of the attack, in addition to an immersive display of recently discovered artifacts. Come to a better understanding of the geographic layout and the movements of the Japanese military from scale models illustrating the moment-by-moment events.
Afterward, take a boat to the USS Arizona Memorial, a floating platform balanced over the sunken hull of the battleship destroyed on the day of the attack. The scene is quiet, and bubbles of oil that still leak from the hull serve to reinforce the relative modernity of the war. Before returning to your hotel, look out for green sea turtles and tropical fish that have made home in the wreckage of the ship.
