Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

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 turquoise blue Pacific Ocean await you.

This exciting tour of the world famous Diamond Head Crater begins with a short introductory talk by a trained guide. You will learn about the fascinating volcanic creation, Hawaiian history, European discovery, early cattle ranching, and modern day military tales of the "Gibraltar of the Pacific" while being escorted on a 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 by the incredible 360 degrees panoramic views of Waikiki Beach, the emerald green mountain and the sparkling aquamarine water of the Pacific ocean below.

The excursion lasts approximately 3.5 hours and is a truly memorable experience. You will also learn important facts about Hawaii's native bird and plant species and will be presented with a Certificate of Achievement that states that you successfully made it to the famous summit of Diamond Head Crater.
