Immerse yourself in the history of World War II on this engaging historical tour. From the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor to the surrender of the Japanese forces aboard the USS Missouri, learn about Hawaii’s part in one of the most definitive eras in world history.

Start with a short flight from Maui to Oahu, where a comfortable bus awaits to take you to Pearl Harbor. Skip the lines to the visitor center and begin with watching a short film. Get a harrowing overview of the 1941 bombing by Japanese Imperial forces, which launched the country into World War II.

Next, ferry out to the USS Arizona Memorial. This tribute was built atop the wreckage of the actual naval craft that sunk on that fateful day, along with 1,177 brave sailors and marines. Continue to the USS Bowfin and listen to the audio guide while touring onboard one of the world’s most famous submarines.

Travel back in time and explore the Pacific Aviation Museum, which still bears the scars of the nation’s aviation battlefield. From here, head on to the USS Missouri—the last battleship built by the US Navy—to see the spot on Big Mo's deck where Japan formally surrendered to the United States. Before returning on your flight home, walk in General Douglas MacArthur’s footsteps that lead to the end of the war.
