Tour Title Diamond Head Crater Adventure
Tour Description

Photos of this tour
This exciting, fun and educational tour of the world famous Diamond Head Crater begins with a short introductory talk by a trained nature guide. Guests learn about the fascinating volcanic creation, Hawaiian history, European discovery, origin of the famous name, early cattle ranching, and modern day military use of the “Gibraltar of the Pacific”.

Before our walk begins, each guest is given one pint of bottled spring water and one energy bar. They are then escorted on a 45 minute walk that ascends to the 763' summit. Along the way visitors 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. When reaching the summit visitors are thrilled by the incredible 360 degrees panoramic views of Waikiki Beach, the emerald green mountains and the sparkling aquamarine water of the Pacific ocean below. Guests enjoy the scenery at the summit for 15 minutes then are slowly escorted back to the crater floor.

The excursion lasts 3 hours and is a truly memorable experience. Before leaving, guests learn important information about Hawaii’s native bird and plant species and are presented with a Certificate of Achievement, including their name and date of hike, that states they successfully made it to the famous summit of Diamond Head Crater.
