Imagine passing security checkpoints and crossing the pontoon bridge to Ford Island in Pearl Harbor and visiting WWII seaplane Hangar 37 with its windows still riddled with bullet holes from attacking aircraft in 1941. As you gaze about the hangar you’re thrust back in time to an era when wartime aviation history was being written. Strolling through the museum’s hangar and the expansive museum proper, you view a Japanese Zero attack plane, a $5 million B-17 Bomber restoration project underway, and well over thirty more aircraft in this world-renowned collection.
Returning from Ford Island, you’ll visit the USS Arizona Memorial, a stirring edifice reached after your brief transit via Navy boat. At the memorial you’ll pay homage to those lost during the attack that stunned the nation and thrust the US into WWII. Before returning to Waikiki you’ll drive through Punchbowl National Cemetery, view the King Kamehameha Statue, and see Honolulu’s best sites under the care of your entertaining and knowledgeable driver guide.
