Definitely a must see when you are in Oahu. The battleship USS Arizona is still leaking traces of oil to the surface after all this years.
You can catch a bus from Wakiki ( sorry forgot the number) but when you buy a bus pass from convenience stores/info centre ask the staff. You can do the tour yourself so don't waste your $$$ on a guided tour.
The USS Arizona and still over a 1,000 service men who went down with the ship lie directly under the monument. A few of the gun turrets still stick out of the water.
The visitors center is quite nice. Expect to have to wait for a trip out to the USS Arizona. It includes museum, snack bar and a large courtyard.
The memorial is located on a stone pier over the top of the USS Arizona wreck. Access is via a ferry from the visitors center. It's free but expect to have to wait for a ferry.
This ship has lots of history. You can walk on board and see all the ship. You can take a tour and learn more about it. It was very interesting to see what it was like inside. The guns were huge.
This is the top of the USS Arizona as it still sits at the bottom of Pearl Harbor. Oil STILL leaks out of it causing a rainbow streak across the water.
Behind is the beautiful Pearl City.
View from on board the Arizona Memorial. There are all the names of the seamen that were killed during the bombing.
Going to Pearl Harbour and seeing the remains of the USS Arizona was a quiet time to think during our trip to Hawaii.
We could not come this far and miss this historical. We took a Roberts Pearl Harbor/ Honolulu city tour. We saw all of the main sites in a short amount of time (which was all we had).
