This exciting tour of the world-famous Diamond Head Crater begins with a short introductory talk by a trained nature guide. You will learn about the fascinating volcanic creation, Hawaiian history, European discovery, early cattle ranching, and modern-day military use of the “Gibraltar of the Pacific” while being escorted on a 45-minute walk that ascends to the 763′ summit.
Along the way our groups stop at several points to rest and photograph the crater. Walking up stairways, going into a dark 200-foot tunnel and climbing a spiral staircase imparts a sense of adventure. From the summit, you’ll be thrilled with the 360-degree panoramic views of Waikiki Beach, the emerald green mountains and the sparkling aquamarine water of the Pacific Ocean below.
Who was Diamond Head Charlie? Why did Kamehameha’s warriors attack Oahu? Where were the ancient heiaus, human sacrificial altars and burial caves? How did the crater receive its famous name? Enjoy an educational and fun guided hike to the 763-foot summit of the most famous crater on Earth. Incredible 360-degree views of Waikiki and the turquoise blue Pacific Ocean await you.
