USS Arizona Memorial Self Guided Tour
The program begins at Pearl Harbor Memorial Theater. An introduction and documentary film take about 30 minutes followed by a shuttle boat ride to the USS Arizona Memorial.
We recommend that you book your Pearl Harbor visit in advance with one of our tour operators. Included is transportation from your hotel. However, you can book yourself through the official website.
Some visitors are willing to take their chances and wait to get a Pearl Harbor ticket from the National Park Service. They give out 1,300 FREE walk-in tickets daily, on a first come, first served basis.
It is recommended that you arrive at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center early as the lines for these tickets can be very long. Doors open at 7:00 AM Hawaii time.

There are several tour companies on Oahu that make your visit to Pearl Harbor very easy and comfortable.
The Hawaii Duck Tour is one of the most interesting. Get picked up and returned to your hotel and enjoy a narration of Honolulu sights on the drive to the memorial.
