This tour takes you to three of Oahu’s most famous destinations including Pearl Harbor, Dole Plantation, and Polynesian Cultural Center. Your tour will start at historic Pearl Harbor where the scenes of the traumatic events that propelled the U.S. into World War II will come to life. You will have an emotional experience at the USS Arizona Memorial as you know how 1,177 seamen lost their lives as their battleship sunk during December 7, 1941, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. You can watch a 23-minute documentary about the attack and then in a Navy vessel cross the Harbor to the Memorial.
Visit the Shrine Room at the Memorial to pay your regards to the soldiers whose names are engraved in marble. As you look into the water, you will see the oil droplets known as “The Black Tears of the Arizona”. Those droplets continue to escape the sunken battleship and rise to the surface of the Harbor. At Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, you will get a chance to visit the WWII museum exhibits and the bookshop.
The next stop is Dole Plantation that is devoted to Hawaii’s pineapple growing history. You can get souvenirs at the Plantation Store and get to taste a delicious frozen Dole Whip treat.
