Holiday Lights Tours
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 21-23, 2007.
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 6:30 PM 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.
