Shutdown over: What next?
Hawaii Tour Company Reacts
People come to the USS Arizona because of the connection to the memorial. Whether their grandfather served there or because they served in Pearl Harbor. We still have to tell them “I’m sorry but because the US Government is shutdown you cannot come to the Arizona Memorial or go to the volcano.”
People will spend thousands and have saved thousands of dollars for many, many years just to come to Hawaii. They have this once in a life time event and now they cannot go to the memorial.
We remain hopeful here at Discover Hawaii Tours that the Government is going to work this out so that we can go back to Pearl Harbor, visit the Volcanoes National Park and share the aloha.
