The boat will circle the USS Arizona Memorial allowing for views and photo opportunities Your guide will tell you that more than 1,000 servicemen still lie entombed in the USS Arizona.

Don't miss this chance to visit the battleship USS Missouri -- the grand ship also known as the Mighty Mo. This is the very place where the Japanese signed the surrender document that ended World War II in the Pacific. The spot is marked by a memorial star set into the ship's immaculately-tended wooden deck.

You will have 1½ hours on your own to wander the decks and passageways of the Mo, with a map to guide you and assist you in interpreting the historic ship's points of interest. This floating museum is a testament to a remarkable piece of American history.

In the unlikely event that the harbor cruise around the Arizona Memorial is cancelled due to exogenous factors (including inclement weather, rains, high winds, water debris and/or Navy cancellation), additional time will be offered for visiting many of the Arizona exhibits and visitor center. The National Park Service has closed the Arizona Memorial indefinitely for repairs. During this period, the Navy tenders' ability to dock at the USS Arizona Memorial has been suspended. Participants will still enjoy a comprehensive experience at Pearl Harbor with the wealth of attractions available at this iconic site. When repairs are completed and docking resumes, this tour will include a visit to the Arizona Memorial.
