  • We love history and really enjoyed visiting Pearl Harbor. We took our son and we all enjoyed seeing the Arizona memorial and we learned a lot from the audio tour. We also toured the Bowfin submarine, ...  more »
  • The Natatorium itself is a beautiful edifice and a wonderful but often forgotten War Memorial. While one can no longer swim in this gorgeous ocean pool, the site still provides a fantastic view of Wai...  more »
  • In truth, there is an old building, swimming pool and arch - nothing else, but this monument to WWI deserves some love and respect.... both Duke K and Johnny Weismuller swam here. Hawaii wasn't even a...  more »

  • This place has been closed since the 70's. It's currently crumbling to the ground. The city can't figure out what to do with it. Some want to get rid of it because it's a waste of money and is a pool filled with seawater. Some want to restore it because it's a historical monument. It was built a long time ago to commemorate those who fought in World War I. Duke Kahanamoku took the first swim. Has some interesting architecture.
  • Really hard to get in and out of the water. Every time you try to climb out the cement crumbles into the water sometimes landing on your head or clavicle. The swim is pretty good if you manage to dodge the giant morey eels.
  • So much potential caught up in city politics. Oahu has plenty of beaches but this rare ocean pool would be such a great place to swim laps and host swim meets!
  • Had to Google the history of this place. It's fenced off and in disrepair, but it's almost 100 years old. It's better than a hotel taking up space though.
  • Big disapointment, closed due to no maintenance. So sad...
