Introducing the “Pearl Harbor War Memorials Tour”

Beginning on October 10th>, 2009, the USS Missouri Battleship will be closed for repairs. It is expected to reopen mid-January. To take the place of our Tour 2: A Day at Pearl Harbor and our Tour 8: WWII Beginning to End while the USS Missouri is dry-docked, we would like to introduce the 42: Pearl Harbor War Memorials Tour. This tour is available as either an inter-island tour with roundtrip airfare from Lihue, Kapalua, Kahului, or Kona included or as an on-island tour with pick-up from Waikiki Hotels included. Visits to the USS Arizona Memorial and Visitors Center, the USS Bowfin Submarine, and the Pacific Aviation Museum are all included in this affordable one-day excursion, as well as a historic Honolulu city tour and an exploration of Barack Obama’s childhood homes and schools.

Our Pearl Harbor War Memorials Tour is our first Pearl Harbor excursion to involve an exploration of the USS Bowfin Submarine. The USS Bowfin found its place in the Naval Fleet in the year 1943. After a short time in service, it was decommissioned in the year 1947. Yet, with the start of the Korean War in 1950, the US realized the USS Bowfin was an integral member of the fleet. Therefore, it was recommissioned in 1951. Used primarily for training purposes, the submarine held its place as a commissioned vessel for another 20 years, finally closing down in 1971. It was named a National Historic Landmark in the year 1986, and is currently one of the most popular war museums open for tours at Pearl Harbor. With the intrigue of its narrow hallways, mess halls, and sleeping quarters, the Bowfin is sure to be a pleasurable tour portion.
