Customer Reviews for Diamond Head Crater Hike

Diamond Head Crater Hike

This exciting, fun and educational tour of the world famous Diamond Head Crater begins with a short introductory talk by a nature guide. You will learn about the fascinating volcanic creation, Hawaiian history, European discovery, the origin of the famous name, early cattle ranching, and modern day military use of the Gibraltar of the Pacific. You’ll be given a bottle of spring water; then set out with your guide on a 45-minute walk to the 763-foot summit of Diamond Head. Along the way you will stop at several points to rest and photograph the crater. Walking up stairways, entering a dark 200-foot tunnel and climbing a spiral staircase impart a sense of adventure. Upon reaching the summit you will encounter an incredible panoramic view of Waikiki Beach, the emerald green mountains and the sparkling aquamarine water of the Pacific Ocean below. Enjoy the scenery at the summit for 15 minutes then you’ll stroll back to the crater floor. Before leaving, you will learn about Hawaii’s native bird and plant species.

This is a great tour option in Honolulu. This was my second visit to the top of Diamond Head and I was just as stunned by the views. I always forget the stairs though. They aren't so bad going up but as someone who is afraid of heights, the last set are frightening to go back down since they're very steep and narrow.

It's a trek. lots of hiking on a wet slippery trail, and tons of people, so there were long lines and lots of waiting once you get to the scenic vista point. But it was fun.
