Book your Pearl Harbor Honolulu tour with us today and save on your bookings. Oahu's past comes to life as you experience two distinct yet equally important periods in Hawaii's history with our knowledgeable and friendly guide. We start at Pearl Harbor where you will come face to face with the dramatic and tragic events of December 7, 1941 when the Japanese forces launched a surprise attack on Oahu. The USS Arizona took a direct hit, sank within minutes, and 1,177 seamen went down with their ship. Watch these historic events unfold during the 23-minute documentary complete with original archival footage of that fateful morning. Think about these lost heroes as you cross the harbor in a Navy vessel en-route to the USS Arizona Memorial which is suspended over the sunken battleship. Step aboard the iconic white Memorial and take in the quiet and reverential environment. You are now standing over the Arizona hull, the final resting place for those brave seamen. In the Shrine Room, their names and ranks are inscribed in marble. Look into the water and note the oil drops - "The Black Tears of the Arizona" - that still rise to the surface from the battleship hull after nearly eight decades.
