USS Arizona Memorial Tour

The National Park Service is happy to announce its new reservations program for individuals and groups for the USS Arizona Memorial Tour, the Visitor Center's official USS Arizona Memorial Narrated Tour and the new Passport to Pearl Harbor Tours. Reservations are available up to 12 hours of arrival by going on line to www.Recreation.gov or by calling 1-877-444-6777. Reservations can be made within a six month period with a non-refundable reservations fee of just $1.50 per ticket. Hundreds of free space available tickets are available daily on a first come, first served bases and depending on the day, you may experience a few hour wait for your tour to the USS Arizona Memorial.

We recommend that you allow yourself at least 3 hours to immerse in our Pearl Harbor Visitor Center experience. Upon arrival to the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, please proceed directly to the National Park Service's ticket counter, conveniently located in the courtyard area. Here you will receive your movie and boat shuttle tickets to the USS Arizona Memorial. The USS Arizona Memorial Narrated Tour Desk and the Pearl Harbor Historical Site Partners ticket counter are also located in the courtyard of the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center.

Free daily tours to the USS Arizona Memorial are available from 8 am to 3pm and include a compelling 23 minute film on the history of the politics, the people and the attack on Oahu. After viewing the film, visitors are then boarded on a 150 passenger US Navy operated boat and experience an unforgettable ride to the USS Arizona Memorial. The movie and boat tour to the USS Arizona Memorial takes approximately 75 minutes.

The USS Arizona Memorial is built over the remains of the sunken battleship USS Arizona, the final resting place for many of the 1,177 crewmen killed on December 7, 1941 when their ship was bombed by the Japanese Naval Forces. This loss of life represents over half of the Americans killed during the worst naval disaster in American History.
