Holiday Lights Tours- 2009
Contact: Visitor Center Front Desk, 808-422-2771 x 119
The U.S. Navy and National Park Service will be offering free evening boat tours of Pearl Harbor that are open to the public on December 18-20, 2009.
The tours will leave from and return to the USS Arizona Memorial Visitor Center on a first-come, first-served basis on
The 30-minute tours will feature Christmas music and the boats will pass through the harbor where the ships are decorated for the Christmas season. This is a great opportunity for kids and adults to see warships and submarines up close while aboard a 150 passenger tour boat.
Tickets and parking are available each evening starting at 5:15 P.M. at the USS Arizona Memorial Visitor Center, which is located off of Kamehameha Highway near Richardson Field and the Aloha Stadium.
Due to enhanced security measures, handbags, purses, packs and other items that can conceal weapons, are not allowed in the visitor center or aboard the tour boats. Do not leave valuables in your car.
Since it can become chilly, a light jacket or sweater is recommended.
This is a joint community service endeavor with the U.S. Navy, National Park Service and volunteer support from the Pearl City Lions Club.
Did You Know?
Although the USS Arizona was stricken from the official register of U.S. naval vessels after the attack, on March 7, 1950, she was symbolically "re-commissioned" when a flagpole was erected on the ship.
