Itinerary

  • Passengers are greeted at Honolulu International Airport and transferred to the hotel on Waikiki Beach. In the evening there is an introduction to the tour and a chance to get acquainted over a welcome drink.

  • We spend the first half of the day at the WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument in the heart of Pearl Harbor. In additional to crossing by boat to the USS Arizona Memorial, the passengers can also go on board the USS Bowfin submarine. The rest of the afternoon is free in Waikiki.

  • No visit to Pearl Harbor is complete without seeing Mighty Mo. We spend the morning exploring the USS Missouri, where passengers can stand on the spot where the Japanese surrender was signed, marking the end of WWII. After paying our respects at the USS Oklahoma Memorial on Ford Island, we visit the Pacific Aviation Museum and its hangars holding both Allied and Japanese bombers and fighter planes. The rest of the afternoon is free in Waikiki to soak up the sun or shop around.

  • This day offers a true insight into the natural beauty of the island of Oahu. We spend the day at Kualoa Ranch on the eastern shores and enjoy their Secret Island private beach, go on an ocean voyage tour in the bay and then explore the valley for sites where movies such as Pearl Harbor and Jurassic Park, were filmed.

  • On the February departure date: In the morning we head to the Dole Plantation to learn about all things pineapple, try to navigate the world’s largest maze and take an express train tour of the fields. Be sure to taste some fresh pineapples in the form of their famous Dole Whip. In the afternoon we honor the valor and sacrifice of the heroes of the Pacific Theater at the “Punchbowl” Cemetery. We finish off the day with a dinner cruise off Waikiki’s coastline after enjoying the stunning Hawaiian sunset.
    On the December anniversary departure date: The morning features attendance at the official ceremony remembering the fallen of the attack on Pearl Harbor. In the afternoon we honor the valor and sacrifice of the heroes of the Pacific Theater at the “Punchbowl” Cemetery followed by the traditional Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade on Kalakaua Avenue.

  • We explore as much of the island of Oahu as we can in a day in a grand circle island tour. Black Point Lookout, Halona Blow Hole and the Haleiwa Pineapple Fields are just some of the highlights. The afternoon is spent at the Polynesian Cultural Center learning about the native cultures of the Pacific Islands, including a luau dinner and the spectacular Ha: Breath of Life show.

  • The US Army has had a garrison in Honolulu for a long time. Battery Randolph in Fort DeRussy houses the US Army Museum, which offers insight into the military role the Hawaiian Islands have played, along with a detailed exhibit on the attack on Pearl Harbor. The afternoon is dedicated to visiting the only royal residence in the United States: the opulent Iolani Palace in downtown Honolulu. Passengers will also be given the chance to take in the views of sprawling Waikiki Beach from the top of Diamond Head crater and enjoy its beautiful state park, dotted with WWII bunkers and pillboxes.

  • Our guests are brought to the airport for their flight to Guam. NOTE: This flight will cross the International Date Line! Airfare from Hawaii to Guam is included in our pricing and arranged by the tour operator.

  • No visit to Guam is complete without seeing the War in the Pacific National Historical Park. We spend the morning exploring the park. In the afternoon we visit Naval Base Guam and Asan and Agat beaches. Asan Beach contains many historic resources preserved from the war: Japanese gun emplacements, pillboxes, caves and tunnels on Asan Ridge.

  • We start off with a visit to Manenggon Concentration Camp and then head to explore some of the natural treasures of Guam, like Talofofo Falls, where Shoichi Yokoi hid in his cave for more than a quarter of a century after WWII ended.

  • We visit the South Pacific Memorial Peace Park, home of the Peace Memorial. We also spend the morning exploring Skinner Plaza, the Plaza De Espana, and an extensive Japanese cave system. After exploring the recently opened Guam Historical Museum, we fly to the island of Saipan, arriving just in time for dinner.

  • We explore a full day’s worth of World War II sites, including Airport Road, Agingan Point Bunker, Obyan Bunker, US 27th Infantry Memorial, Veterans Memorial, US WWII Soldiers Memorial, and a Japanese tank and bunker.

  • Our second full day in Saipan offers a visit to famous WWII sites on the northern shore of the island, including the spectacular Last Command Post, Banzai Cliff, and Suicide Cliff. We also stop to admire scenic points such as the Grotto and Bird Island Lookout. We then visit the Northern Marianas Museum of History and Culture, Old Japanese Jail, American Memorial Park, and Mount Tapocho.

  • During our day trip to Tinian we visit North Field, where the Enola Gay was loaded and launched onto its historic mission. Upon return to Saipan, we take a motorboat ride to discover sunken Sherman tanks.
