Boat Tours Temporaily Unavailable
Contact: Eileen Martinez, 808-422-2771 X124
Boat tours to the USS Arizona Memorial were temporarily interrupted today, due to an unsafe dock condition at the visitor center. At approximately 11:00 a.m., one of the gangway planks linking the visitor center to the shoreside dock began to separate from the shore, creating an unsafe boarding situation. The US Navy and the National Park Service responded immediately and are currently working to fix the problem.
The visitor center remains open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Visitors can experience the museum and exhibits, audio tour, bookstore and theater presentation.
