Update on Hawaii Tour Changes During Government Shutdown in Hawaii

As you may know the U.S. Government Shutdown in Hawaii started midnight, October 1, due to budget constraints over which we have no control. Discover Hawaii Tours is taking action and being proactive by contacting our guests and partner agencies to advise on Hawaii tour changes and modified operational procedures on a day-by-day basis. The USS Arizona National Park, Hawaii’s Volcanoes National Park and the Punchbowl National Cemetery are all affected. All facilities will be closed and inaccessible. This includes parking at the USS Arizona Memorial and most entrances to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Discover Hawaii Tours will be extending full refunds and rescheduling for all our guests.
