Daily 7am–5pm
Arizona Memorial Place, Pearl Harbor, 96818

The Basics

The USSArizona Memorial is free and open to the public. For civilians, the only way to access the memorial is via Park Service shuttle boats that run according to timed tickets. Visit several Pearl Harbor attractions on a guided tour that includes boat tickets and round-trip transportation between Honolulu and Waikiki. Because USSArizona tickets are limited each day and often involve long waits to procure, booking a tour in advance is a convenient way to ensure you’ll see the memorial. Note that boat tours not run by the Park Service are not allowed to disembark at the USSArizona Memorial and sometimes skip it; boat tours with Park Service tickets allow you to disembark and take the Park Service’s tour.

Pearl Harbor: USS Arizona Memorial & USS Missouri Battleship Tour from Waikiki
Blake was excellent guide and driver. We really enjoyed all the info about the Oklahoma And Arizona. Punchbowl was another highlight of the trip. There wasn’t enough time to go thru everything at Pearl Harbor.. The only downside was being in the van and not requiring everyone to wear a mask during our rides. We take covid very serious and since we have compromised health issues, that was the only downside not related to what we saw.

USS Arizona Memorial Narrated Tour
I was an emotional wreck. I cried like a baby. All those innocent lives. It just rocked me to the core. And seeing the oil slick, this will stay with me forever. The whole place was just beautiful. Nice and clean. The Navy men were helpful and respectful.

Pearl Harbor USS Arizona and Honolulu City Tour
David was a great tour guide. But my wife is disabled and we were disappointed that Viatour didn’t inform us that there were steps to get into the bus. It was difficult for her to board.

Life jackets at Pearl Harbor.

Pearl Harbor USS Arizona and Honolulu City Tour
Driver was informative. Pearl Harbor was okay from a “where do I go and what do I do first” standpoint. Our ferry broke down when returning from the AZ memorial and struck the memorial. A bit scary when we were told to quickly put on life jackets but it was handled well.

USS Arizona Memorial - Honolulu City - Aloha Pearl Harbor Tour - Oahu
Visiting the Pearl Harbor Memorial was a sobering and memorable journey. Our tour bus driver, Ro, was amazing, and enriched the experience by giving us lots of useful information on the trip out and back. Definitely worth taking. Do make sure you go online to the park service and get reservations first!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Park Service’s memorial tour includes the viewing of a 23-minute documentary, round-trip boat ride, and time at the memorial. Plan to spend about 90 minutes there.

  • Check the weather before you go. Because the memorial must be accessed by boat, high winds and seas may be cause for cancellation.

  • There are no restrooms at the memorial, but facilities can be found at the visitor center.

  • The USSArizona Memorial, visitor center, and related facilities are accessible to wheelchair users.

  • Because the timed tickets are limited to the number of seats on the boat, crowding is not an issue.

How to Get There

The memorial is located within the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument, in Pearl Harbor on Oahu. To reach the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center from Waikiki and downtown Honolulu, take Nimitz Highway to H-1 West and take exit 15-A to HI-99, then turn left at the fourth traffic light.

When to Get There

The USSArizona Memorial is open daily year-round except Thanksgiving, December 25, and January 1. If you want to visit spontaneously, the site gives away 1,300 tickets each day starting at 7am—arrive early, as they’re given on a first-come, first-served basis. Many visitors opt to start their Pearl Harbor experience with the USSArizona, making morning tickets the hardest to come by. Other challenging times to get tickets are the weekends on either side of the anniversary of Pearl Harbor (December 7), as well as over busy summer and winter school holidays.
