Oahu Day Trip: Pearl Harbor, Honolulu and Punchbowl from Maui

USS Missouri

This day trip from Maui to Pearl Harbor is easily one of the most moving and dramatic days you can spend in Hawaii. After the 30-minute flight from Maui to Oahu, tour the historic grounds of Pearl Harbor where Japanese bombers emptied their payloads on America’s Pacific fleet. Stand on the Arizona Memorial, where thousands of soldiers lost their lives and sank in a watery grave, before walking the decks of the USS Missouri where the Japanese armistice was signed. Peer over the side of the ship, and it’s still possible to see the dents from kamikaze bombers. This historic battleship was in active service until after Desert Storm, and dramatic details of its military service are told on the guided tour.

After the guided tour of Pearl Harbor, the tour continues with a historic journey through downtown Honolulu. Highlights include:

•    Iolani Palace—the only royal palace on American soil
•    The Mission House Museum
•    Kawaihao Church
•    The famous statue of King Kamehameha
•    Waikiki Beach
•    Honolulu Hale
•    Punchbowl Crater
•    Nu’uanu Rainforest and Pali Lookout
•    Diamond Head Crater (if time permits)

Before returning to the Honolulu airport for the return flight to Maui, you’ll take a moment to remember the fallen at the Punchbowl National Cemetery. This also includes a short stop at the dramatic Courts of the Missing.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Our day on Oahu met our expectations of time well spent. Our guide, Cody, exceeded our expectations and was one of the highlights of the trip. Cody treated us like VIPs. We appreciated his commentaries and his clear communications regarding what to see and how much time to allow at each site. Cody is a public relations treasure. Thank you Cody from the two Debby!

Ernie our guide was great and entertaining. The trip was educational and interesting. We saw so much of the island and the history of Pearl Harbor was a solemn experience yet learning so much about what really happened. I would do this again it was so good.

Everything went smoothly, great tour guide. I think we got lucky that we did the tour on a Sunday as there was not a lot of traffic.

It was a wonderful day. The bus arrived on time for pick-up, driver was GREAT!! The airport greeters were very well prepared and nothing left to doubt. The bus driver/guide BEN was absolutely the best. Very knowledgeable and GREAT personality.

I would use this travel service again and would suggest to others.

If you are in Hawaii, a visit to Pearl Harbor should be made. While in Maui, this tour allowed me to see Pearl Harbor, the Punchbowl and Waikiki Beach in one day. It's a full-day tour but it is worth it.

Michael was a fabulous tour guide, and made my first visit to Oahu very interesting. The tour included stops and sites I likely wouldn't have booked had I planned my own itinerary, and they were all wonderful. I loved the Pearl Harbor stops and cannot wait to return!
