"Pearl Harbour and the USS Arizona" Pearl Harbour Tip by keeweechic

Pearl Harbour, Oahu: 78 reviews and 194 photos


The USS Arizona Memorial is built over the remains of the sunken battleship USS Arizona and the final resting place for many of the 1,177 crewmen that were killed on December 7, 1941 when the ship was bombed by the Japanese Naval Forces. This has been the worst naval disaster in American History.

There is a shoreside visitor centre where the tour begins with a video, then you board a navy launch to the memorial.

You need to allow at least a couple of hours. The first time I went out there, I took the bus. The second time I went by boat and the seas were really rough. I don't think there was a single settled tummy on the way back.

Address: 1 Arizona Memorial Place, Honolulu, Hawaii 96818
