What You Can Expect

Oahu Day Trip: Pearl Harbor, Honolulu and Punchbowl from the Big Island

The famous statue of King Kamehameha, decorated in traditional flowers.

This all day Pearl Harbor tour from Kona departs from Kona airport, before making the short, 30-minute flight to Honolulu International Airport. 

From here you’ll transfer to nearby Pearl Harbor, site of the 1941 attack that suddenly put the US at war. You’ll visit the somber Arizona Memorial by crossing Pearl Harbor in a launch boat, and see the spot where thousands of sailors still rest in a watery grave. You’ll walk the decks of the USS Missouri, which in 1945 was the spot where the Japanese officially surrendered to the Allies, and gain a strong sense of history at this storied and infamous spot. 

The history continues on a tour of Honolulu, where you’ll visit exquisite Kawaihao Church — or 'Westminster Abbey of the Pacific' — and see Iolani Palace where Queen Liliuokalani was illegally overthrown. Visit the statue of King Kamehameha as well as Honolulu Hale, and finish your Pearl Harbor tour from the Big Island at Punchbowl National Cemetery, which along with the neighboring Courts of the Missing remembers the soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice while fight in World War II.

This was our first trip to Oahu and the memorial. This tour covered most of what we wanted to see with an added bonus of having Ed as our driver and guide. We'd highly recommend this tour!

It was great even though the wind kept us from viewing the Arizona. Ed was a great guide and made the day a memorable experience.

This tour was a great experience. We really enjoyed it. We were early to the airport and our guide was already there. He walked us through each step of the way until we boarded the plane. Our tour guide, Cody, was waiting for us when we arrived in Oahu. Our guide, Cody, was well prepared and was charming, and knew much of the history of our tour. He was patient and had a great sense of humor. The tour itself was interesting and informative. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

The Pearl Harbor part of this tour was the best part and the main reason for choosing this tour. We also liked going to Waikiki Beach and being able to have lunch there and walk around for a bit. The rest of the tour was just driving by a couple of places on the bus and didn't get to stop, but that was okay as most of our time was spent at Pearl Harbor and Waikiki Beach. We took this tour from Kona, so it was worth it.

Great tour and Leo our driver was fabulous and went with us everywhere. Leo was very knowledgeable and helpful. We were met at airport in Kona by a rep explaining the flight and got us checked in and again a rep when we landed in Honolulu who took us to the bus. Unfortunately we couldn't get to the Arizona that day since the tug hit the dock that very morning but who knew. Great experience!
