Ships of a more recent vintage occupy your next highlight, Pearl Harbor. In addition to the Navy’s latest, you’ll see two WWII icons, the Arizona Memorial and the Battleship Missouri, often referred to as the “bookends of WWII.” Up next is placid Keehi Lagoon, home of a variety of ocean sports, and historic Honolulu Harbor. You’ll see Aloha Tower, once the tallest structure on the island, as well cruise ships from distant ports.

Next is downtown Honolulu, featuring the only royal palace in the country. Above the city stands Punchbowl, the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. The tour continues above Ala Moana Beach Park, Magic Island, the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor and Waikiki Beach. See surfers, marine life and the sparkling white sand of the world’s most famous beach. At Diamond Head, you’ll turn and head over Honolulu proper, the University of Hawaii campus and on up the Nuuanu Pali. Here you will get a fine view of Lulumahu Falls and a grand perspective of Honolulu.

On your return to the resort area you’ll see the campus of Kamehameha Schools and Oahu’s Central Plain.
