I took the bus to Pearl Harbour and arrived at 9am. Don’t bring a bag if you can avoid it as they charge $3 per bag at the coat check and you must leave all bags there, including handbags.
They give you a free ticket to see the USS Arizona but everything else is expensive – the Missouri is $15 even with a military discount.
Before you take the ferry to the Arizona memorial you watch a short and rather strange documentary film. The ferry takes about 5 min.
Do ask the rangers about the site as they are very interesting.
The museum is small but reasonable.
I left Pearl Harbour and went shopping again – this time stocking up on Hawaiian Host chocolate macadamia nuts. The economy boxes are about $4 in the ABC shops but Long’s had them for $2 on special, so I bought 24. After doing some more shopping I thought this was insufficient and bought another 12. Yes, everyone isgetting chocolates from me this Christmas! I also loaded up on protein powder since it’s so cheap in the US.
