Exclusive Heart of the Missouri Tour
Have you ever wondered what it takes to make the Battleship Missouri go 33 knots or how to fire the massive 16” guns? The 90-minute Heart of the Missouri tour will take you right into our engineering spaces and give you an up close and personal look at the inner workings of the ship with specially trained tour guide. This upgraded tour will allow you guided access into the Engine rooms, Gun Turret #1, Damage Control Central Station, Broadway, Fire Room #4 and our Aft Battery Plot Room.
For your safety, please note that this is a physically strenuous tour and is not recommended for those with mobility constraints. You must be able to climb ten sets of steep, narrow stairs, step over more than 12 two-foot high obstacles and navigate through tight doorways and low overheads. Guests must be at least 10 years of age to participate.

Golf Tournament at Ko’Olau Golf & Country Club
Listed by Golf Magazine as one of the “Top 100 Places You Can Play” and ranked seventh on Golflink.com’s “Top 100 United States Golf Courses” in 2008-2012, Ko’Olau Golf Club has earned a place as one of the most unique and beautiful golf experiences in the United States. Designed by renowned course architect Dick Nugent in 1992, the 7,310-yard 18-hole golf course seamlessly incorporates the surrounding landscape and beauty into its layout – using ravines as the target for holes and large sand bunkers as deterrents to wayward shots.
Although Ko’Olau has rightly earned its reputation for being one of the most challenging courses in the nation when playing from the back tees, there are four other sets of tees to choose to match your level of play. With scenery second-to-none, Ko’Olau Golf Club offers something for everyone. Golf in Hawaii would not be complete without visiting and experiencing Ko’Olau Golf Club.
