Private Pearl Harbor Visit

Tour historic Pearl harbor and learn about Hawaii’s past and present surrounding World War II. Remember and honor the war heroes of that infamous day.

Skip the big bus and go privately so you can tour at your own pace. We offer flexible half- and full-day Pearl Harbor tours. This is best to book early on your vacation.

All tours include historical commentary on the drive to Pearl Harbor, USS Arizona Memorial tickets which we will reserve for you, Pearl Harbor historic exhibits and movie.

You must have advanced reservations for the Arizona Memorial. Therefore our starting time might vary slightly. We do not go on the shuttle boat ride with you to the Memorial.

All other attractions you’ll pay the day of the tour. There are plenty of tickets and we will accompany you to all the other attractions. We create a flexible custom tour just for you. Kids have fun too!

*Please note that a few times a year the rains and wind are such that the USS Arizona Memorial is shut down by the US Navy. In that unfortunate event there are no tour refunds. However we will be able to do the historic exhibits and other Pearl Harbor Center attractions.

Half-Day Tours (5-6 hours)

You are able to do two attractions on a five hour tour; the USS Arizona Memorial and the USS Bowfin Submarine for the five  hour tour.

If you want to go to the USS Missouri or the Pacific Aviation Museum instead then the tour will be a 6 hour tour.  The additional hour is $100. You can add this on when you book online.

If you only want to do the USS Arizona Memorial, during the remaining time we can sightsee to the Punchbowl-National Cemetery of the Pacific, Lolani Palace and the King Kamehameha statue or we can do a shortened East Side tour.

You always have the option of extending the tour if you would like to see and do more. We are flexible! Additional hours are $100 per hour.

5 Hour Tour – USS Arizona Memorial, Historic exhibits, Movie, USS Bowfin Submarine ( $24 additional per person to pay day of tour) and drive to Punchbowl with Historic downtown.

6 Hour Tour – USS Arizona Memorial, Historic exhibits, movie, USS Missouri ( $37 additional per person to pay day of tour ) OR Pacific Aviation Museum ( $25 additional per persone to pay day of tour ) and drive to Punchbowl with Historic downtown.

Full-Day Tours (8 hours)

You can spend the entire day at Pearl Harbor. After the USS Arizona Memorial, you can do three to four other attractions including the USS Bowfin Submarine and new interactive museum (2 hours, $24 per ticket), the USS Missouri (2 hours, $37 per ticket), or Pacific Aviation Museum (2 hours, $25 per ticket).  We can stop for lunch at the Lanikai cafe located at the Pacific Aviation Museum, or the food truck at the USS Missouri. There’s also a new food truck at the USS Bowfin. Plan on $15 per person for the day. Food not included in tour price.

On the full day tour you can select either of two upgrade special tours. Either the Captain’s Tour or the Chief Engineer’s Tour. Both these tours need advance reservations as they are limited to 10 people. The tours run an 45 minutes and cost $30 additional to the General admission price of $37. If you are interested in more information please email us at [email protected]

We can pick you up at the Airport ( $75 additional ) or Cruise Terminal ( $65 additional ) with or without luggage. 

When you book you will receive an email confirmation. Please read all the information.

Book a Sightseeing Tour or Hiking Tour and save $50 on the second tour.

Theresa H was a fabulous tour guide. She made our entire experience at Pearl Harbor memorable. She thoughtfully anticipated our needs throughout the day. I would recommend her family and friends!!

Theresa was our guide for a private tour of Pearl Harbor and the Missouri. I chose a private tour because of my two kiddos and she did not disappoint! Theresa was amazing, she even got in the line at the book store for me when I mentioned I wasn't sure if we'd have time to get books for sister. My girls like her so much that my oldest huged her at the oldest does not hug anyone!! Theresa gave us several other recommendations of places to go including a beach on the North Shore where my girls got to see TURTLES 🐢, which were at the top of the "must list" for Hawaii. We will be using her on any future trips!

Today my 82 year old mom and I booked a private tour to Pearl Harbor as she had never been. All I can say is that it was an outstanding experience! Marie was incredibly knowledgeable, informative, and absolutely fun to boot! My mom can’t stop talking about her and all the things she learned today! I must say that although I had been years ago, today’s experience was exceptional. The visitor center was practically empty, which made us feel extra safe during these COVID times! Marie took wonderful pictures of us and edited them on the spot! A bonus to add to a special day! I highly recommend Blue Hawaii Photo tours to anyone looking for an exceptional tour experience! I will definitely book with Marie again whenever out of town guest visit!

We took this tour with 14 family members for my husbands 50th celebration in Hawaii. Maria the owner and Jenny were incredible. They were gracious, courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. They gave us tips to get the most out of the visit to Pearl Harbor even down to where to sit on the ferry and to watch the video prior. What a great time we had. Then after the tour they took us to a local food truck area and we had the best local food. It was a great experience and I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a great tour reasonably priced with a great caring owner and caring supporting staff. They completely exceeded our expectations.
