To begin your VIP-style tour, be ready for morning pickup in a luxury van at your Waikiki hotel, Kahala Resort, the Honolulu cruise port, or the airport. Your driver with take you directly to the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, where you can get a great overview of the harbor’s important history and pick up your pre-reserved tickets to the USS Arizona Memorial, Pearl Harbor’s most popular attraction.
Hop on a boat to access the memorial, built on the site of a sunken battleship where more than 1,000 US sailors lost their lives during the 1941 Japanese attack that prompted US entry into World War II. Skip the often-long lines with your priority ticket, and explore the floating memorial with an audio-guided tour.
After your visit, enjoy an included lunch at a local restaurant before embarking on a driving tour of Oahu’s gorgeous North Shore. Make your way from Pearl Harbor to Ka’ena Point, the island’s westernmost tip, up to the northerly outcropping of Kahuku Point for stellar views. See the beautiful blue crescent of Waimea Bay and other world-famous North Shore surf beaches before the return drive to your original departure point.
