What are the hours of operation?
Pearl Harbor Hours are 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. Keep in mind that Pearl harbor is closed on Thanksgiving Day, December 25, and January 1. It is open all other days of the year unless weather or political conditions cause a closure. If you are uncertain, check with your tour company.
Is parking provided? If so, what is the fee?
There is free parking available near the Visitor Center.
What should I wear?
There is not an official Pearl Harbor dress code, but rangers reserve the right to ask visitors to leave if they are dressed inappropriately. We also suggest you bring a jacket. Often people imagine that Hawaii has only one temperature, but it can get chilly and can rain. You do not want to miss out on the outdoor exhibits if it is raining. A rain jacket will make your trip more comfortable. Also if you find the theaters cold you may put on your jacket.
Is the tour/attraction/activity appropriate for children?
It is absolutely OK to bring kids to Pearl Harbor. In fact, it is one of the best things that you can do with your kids in Hawaii.
Is transportation included? If so, where is the pick-up spot, or how do I arrange it?
Transportation to and from Pearl Harbor is not included in the Passport. To get there, you can take public transportation or a taxi from Waikiki or drive there yourself. Pearl Harbor is a short drive from Waikiki and downtown Honolulu.
Is the attraction wheelchair accessible?
The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center is very accessible for visitors with disabilities. There is reserved accessible parking in the front lot, which is a short distance from the entrance.
Can I bring my camera?
Cameras are allowed at Pearl Harbor. You can take photos everywhere, EXCEPT on the Admiral Clarey Bridge to Ford Island. Cameras allowed at Pearl Harbor include video cameras. However, if you bring a larger than standard camera, security may need to inspect it. You will also be questioned about filming commercially, which is prohibited without a permit. Keep in mind that you can only take what you can fit in your pockets and a camera to carry in your hands. While cameras are allowed at Pearl Harbor, camera bags are prohibited.
