Pearl Harbor Hawaii Duck Tour
This Pearl Harbor tour is currently unavailable for booking on our site. Please visit our Pearl Harbor page for other available options.
Hop on board the Duck, an amphibious vehicle, and head out to Pearl Harbor. Once you arrive, you have a choice of three different Pearl Harbor tours. See either the Arizona Memorial, the USS Missouri or the Pacific Aviation Museum. Besides visiting Pearl Harbor, this Duck tour takes you through downtown Honolulu where you will see many historic locations. Hawaii Duck Tour vehicles are Hydra Terra vehicles and can go on land or through the ocean! This tour also includes a water segment at Keehi Lagoon.
Arizona Memorial Tour: This Pearl Harbor tour starts with the documentary about the attack on December 7th. After that, you will join other visitors on the Navy launch across to the sunken Arizona where the memorial was built on top of the ship that still lies at the bottom of the ocean bubbling up oil.
USS Missouri Tour: Start with a shuttle ride from the Visitor Center to Ford Island for this Pearl Harbor tour. Once you arrive a staff member will give a short briefing on the exhibit and then you can go through the exhibit there.
Pacific Aviation Museum: Explore the exhibits at the Pacific Aviation Museum.
After the Pearl Harbor tours are conducted you are taken back to the Duck tour vehicle to continue on.

- The DUKW (D-model year 1942, U-amphibian, K-all wheel drive, W-dual rear axles) is boat-like vehicle with a hollow airtight body. It was designed to carry 25 soldiers and their equipment, an artillery piece, or 5,000 pounds of general cargo and ammunition. On land, it can go up to 50 miles per hour - fast enough for touring purposes. The United States produced 20,000 DUKWs during World War II, and they first saw use in the invasion of Sicily in 1943. Later, they played an import role in the invasion of Normandy.
Newer vehicles have been added to the fleet called Hydra-Terras. These vehicles feature a positive buoyancy foam filled compartments and v shaped hulls to cut through water and all vehicles have been retrofitted with soft cushioned seats.
There are no restrooms aboard the vehicle.
There is no air-conditioning, but the vehicle is open to the air (it has a roof still) and allows for the Hawaiian tradewinds to breeze through the vehicle.
