Event description


This event is offered to registered family participants of the 2019 United States Conference of Mayors in Honolulu.

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, you will opportunities to 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 will be 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.

This is a moderately challenging hike with uneven terrain that is on an incline, with a 550' elevation gain.

Suggestion: Wear comfortable clothing and covered-toed walking shoes (tennis shoes or hiking boots are preferable). Sun block or sun screen is recommended.

Restriction: For your safety and comfort, sandals, slippers, flip-flops, high heels and platforms are not allowed on this hike.
