Great news for anyone looking to visit Hawaii and Pearl Harbor
in Oahu! The WWII Valor in The Pacific National Memorial at Pearl Harbor will now be offering Arizona Memorial tickets at their regular hours.
Budget Cuts Meant Less Arizona Memorial Tickets
For months now people wanting to see Pearl Harbor’s top attraction have found Arizona Memorial tickets hard to come by. The recent sequestration budget cuts had forced the park to reduce the show times from 8am-3pm to 8am-1pm. With Arizona Memorial programs running every fifteen minutes, this meant 1200 less opportunities per day to visit the memorial. Though this national park is not getting an increase in funding, they have been able to manage their budget to again offer Arizona Memorial tickets until three o’clock.
The Best Way To Get Arizona Memorial Tickets
Though there will be 1200 more Arizona Memorial tickets available per day, this does not guarantee that they will be easy to come by. Many people have gone online to reserve tickets in advance where they discover that tickets are sold out
through November. Others have attempted to stand in line as early as five or six in the morning only to be turned away at the ticket office.
This means that booking a tour with a trusted tour company, such as Discover Hawaii Tours
, remains the most reliable way to assure an Arizona Memorial Ticket. Discover Hawaii Tours reserves tickets months in advance in order to accommodate the high demand for the Arizona Memorial experience. Add this to Hawaii’s top rated tour guides
and you are in for a very special day with Discover Hawaii Tours.Whether it’s a full-day circle island tour
or a quick trip through historical downtown Honolulu, most all tours will begin or end with a Pearl Harbor experience.
