Globe trotters on island excursion won’t want to miss an opportunity to explore Mount Leahi, also known as O’ahu’s legendary Diamond Head. Exciting group tours of the iconic crater begin with a brief introductory talk by a trained nature guide; learn about volcanic creation, rich and colorful Hawaiian history, European discovery, early cattle ranching, and modern day military use of the Gibraltar of the Pacific as you and your fellow adventurers are escorted on the 763’ climb to the summit. Convenient rest stops along the way afford wonderful opportunities to photograph the famous landmark; exploring a dimly lit 225 foot tunnel and hiking up intriguing staircases completed in the early 1900’s imparts a keen sense of history to your tropical hiking adventure. Once at the top, you’ll see old bunkers on the crater rim and a navigational lighthouse built in 1917, and enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the stunning shoreline of southeastern O’ahu. This memorable, must-do excursion lasts approximately 3 hours and is a truly notable accomplishment: guests are presented with an authentic Certificate of Achievement once they’ve completed their grand Diamond Head expedition!
