Special thanks to Don Schaaf for this info regarding the shuttle boat ride around Ford Island:

"This has always been a very popular.  A U.S. Navy shuttle boat, (the type used to transfer visitors from the visitors center to the memorial) leaves the visitors center and is piloted around Ford Island, with a continual commentary by a Lead Park Ranger.  The usual LPR's, Skip Wheeler and Terry Dorman do an excellent job of commenting and pointing out different details about the attack during the tour.

The boat only holds 150 people, so reservations have to be made ahead of time (2-3 days).  I would think, however, that someone from the mainland who really wanted to take the tour could get their name put on the list somewhat ahead of time by calling the Visitors Center (808) 422-2771 or by writing - National Park Service, 1 Arizona Memorial Place, Honolulu, HI  96818, and simply asking that their name be put on the list for that ride. The person writing would have to specify what time for the boat ride, but I do not believe those times have been settled upon as yet.

There are two or three such "around Ford Island" tours on Memorial Day, there may be more this year."


Hope this helps.  Thanks again Don for the info!

I'd like to say hi to Don, hope he remembers me from the Visitors Center, we used to talk about Nagumo.

As for the special tours around Ford Island, they are offered 4 times a year (Memorial Day, 4th July, Veterans Day & 7 Dec).  There are usually 3 tours on those days, covering essentially the same areas, even though each tour has a different title.

Additionally, I believe that tours can also be arranged through PACFLT and SUBPAC.  These are NOT Park Service tours and until recently I thought they were just for VIPs, but have been informed differently.  People wanting to know more should contact the Public Affairs Office for PACFLT/SUBPAC and if I can find out more specifics, I'll post them here.
