540 Reviews

There are only 15 American submarines that remain from World War II, and the most-heralded of them—the USS Bowfin—now sits in Pearl Harbor, where the war American’s war first started. Known as the “Avenger of Pearl Harbor,” the USS Bowfin was built in Maine and sailed the South Pacific. It set off on its mission exactly one year after the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, and 44 different enemy ships would eventually succumb to her guns.

Today, visitors to Pearl Harbor can walk inside the submarine to see the cramped metal quarters, and get an authentic feel for the daily hardships of the boys in the “Silent Service.” In nine tours of duty only one crewmember died from injuries in battle, and when visiting today, you can stand in the chambers where these brave sailors celebrated a successful strike. Once finished with the tour of the ship, learn the fascinating history of submarines in the accompanying Bowfin museum, where exhibits range from a ballistic missile that was once housed on the ship, to a 54-foot, human-guided torpedo known as a Japanese Kaiten.

Around 8am on December 7th, 1941, Japanese Zero warplanes attacked Pearl Harbor and the Island of Oahu, Hawaii. The devastating surprise attack killed 2,403 and wounded over 1,000 others, marking the United States entrance into World War II. As Hawaii’s #1 visitor attraction, Pearl Harbor serves as a piece of living history to be appreciated by people from all over the world. Our goal is to host you for a seem-less, sentimental, and superior Pearl Harbor Experience. You will see the official video documentary only found at Pearl Harbor and experience a boat ride (taken on Navy Shuttles) out to see the Arizona Memorial and other areas in Pearl Harbor. After Pearl Harbor, you will venture to the Punchbowl National Cemetery & visit the statue of King Kamehameha the Great before returning to Waikiki. Tickets are pre-arranged and come included.
