SHUTTLE FOR DIAMOND HEAD CRATER AND SELF GUIDED HIKE
A spectacular extinct volcano
Set out on our convenient shuttle to the incredible and imposing Diamond Head Crater. This crater is 3,500 feet in diameter and seems to stretch away to the horizon. The remnant of a volcano over 150,000 years old, the hike up to see it is one full of beautiful vistas. Get some good exercise on a moderate level hike and be sure to bring something to protect you from the sun! When you are done, we will happily shuttle you back to your accommodations, so you don’t have to worry about anything other than having fun getting to see one of Hawaii’s most impressive natural wonders.
Parking in the area can be a pain, and getting to and from destinations in O’ahu can be frustrating in general. Don’t worry for a moment about getting to the fun, just let us take you there! We can pick you up at all the major Waikiki locations and take you both to and back from your Diamond Head destination so you can focus your attention on having fun.
The 1.6 mile round trip hike to Diamond Head Crater offers spectacular views of the landscapes of O’ahu and its natural beauty. See the coastlines stretching away from you, a blue expanse of glittering wonder, and let the elevation of the hike take you above the scenery of O’ahu itself so you can look out over the island.
When British sailors passed by the island in the 1800s, they saw a distant glitter in the distance that they thought were diamonds. While what they saw were really calcite crystals in the lava rocks, the name they gave the crater stuck. This massive crater is one of the most imposing and stunning things to see on the Hawaiian islands and is a must see for any visitor.

A Fun and Active Day Out
When British sailors passed by O’ahu in the early 1800s, they saw a strange glitter coming from the island. What they saw was calcite crystals in the lava rock reflecting sunlight, but not knowing this, they believed they saw diamonds. The name stuck. Diamond Head Crater is a massive 3,500 foot diameter extinct volcano that is one of O’ahu’s most popular and impressive natural wonders. Get to see it without having to worry about transportation, and more importantly parking, with our convenient and reliable shuttle service. The hiking path to see this incredible crater is 1.6 miles long round trip and is relatively moderate in difficulty, making it approachable to start, and the views are very worth it.
Do keep in mind that the path does end in some steep stairs that are more difficult than the path leading to them, but persevere and you get one of the most stunning vistas on the Hawaiian islands. Keep hydrated! We will give you one complimentary bottle of water for the trip, and there are drinking fountains, as well as bathrooms, at the start of the path but not after you have started. Bring some sun protection and be sure to have fun and take pictures. When you are done, we will return you to your accommodation so you can rest up after your hike.
