Pearl Harbor & Historic Tours
PEARL HARBOR TOURS are on hold until January 2023
This 3 hour tour will include the lead up to the attack, the day of the attack & the ramifications post attack. We will discuss the Battle for the Pacific and talk about the surrender of the Japanese Imperial forces and the rebuilding of the Empire of Japan by the allies. World War 2 in Europe will be an essential part of the discussion.
We will discover just why America’s ally (Japan) decided to attack Pearl Harbor. We will dive into the history of Japan & it’s aggression into China, Manchuria and Indochina.
Chris is able to relate the story of the attack on Pearl Harbor even to youngsters.
We can extend this to include the Bowfin Submarine, USS Missouri and the Pacific Aviation Museum.
Tickets to the USS Arizona Memorial program are not guaranteed with this tour. We will attempt to book tickets but we can not promise that tickets will be available. The USS Arizona Memorial is a sacred and solemn venue and as such Chris will not be speaking during the visit in the park. Out of respect for the other visitors and men who served at Pearl Harbor we do not accompany guests on this portion of the tour. Chris will be able to accompany guests to the other venues.
