Do Business With Us

Transportation Companies

A Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) is required for commercial transportation companies that convey visitors for a direct or indirect fee into and/or out of the Pearl Harbor National Memorial. Interested commercial transportation companies may submit a complete CUA Application Packet.

These are the authorized commercial transportation providers for the Pearl Harbor National Memorial. This list is updated quarterly.

Special Performances, Events, and Ceremonies

The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center offers visitors a place to connect with national, international, and personal histories of World War II in the Pacific, ranging from events leading to the December 7, 1941 attack on Oʻahu, to continued peace and reconciliation. Special events are authorized under a Special Use Permit (SUP) when they fall within the scope and purpose for which the memorial was established. The memorial is a “place of remembrance and contemplation of the nature of war and the sacrifices of those who lost their lived during the Pacific War.”

Events authorized through permit must meet the following criteria:

  • The activity will not impair park values, resources, and visitor enjoyment.
  • There is a meaningful association between the park area and the event.
  • The event contributes to visitor understanding of the park’s significance.

To apply, download a Special Use Permit Application. Please e-mail us to submit applications or to ask questions about this process. Allow 5 business days for the processing of completed permit applications. Only completed applications will be considered. Applications may be denied due to the lack of sufficient time to review, process, and schedule.

Commercial Filming

**A permit is not required for a visitor's personal, noncommercial filming and photography activities within normal visitor center hours.**

All commercial filming activities require a permit. Commercial filming involves the digital or film recording of a visual image or sound recording by person, business or other entity for a market audience. This includes recordings such as those used for a documentary, news magazine, television or feature film, advertisement, or similar project.

The commercial filming application and permitting process document includes further instructions, including the other components required for the complete application package. All documentation required in the package must be received by our office at least 10 business days prior to filming, to allow adequate time to review, process, and schedule the proposed filming.

Email us with any additional CUA or permit inquiries.
