pleasant stroll in the tropical forest

Posted on: 2023/02/07

Very little elevation gain on the trail, so it’s a very nice walk for most.

The amount of water coming down the falls depends on how much it has been raining. For us there was only a trickle.

They can’t take you to the official Tantalus Lookout inside the state park any more due to current restrictions, but you’ll still be treated to a pretty nice viewpoint overlooking the city after your picnic lunch.

  • viewpoint overlooking town

good overview of the island

Posted on: 2022/12/12

Our tour guide was very accomodating and had lots of helpful hints.

Have breakfast before starting, because the Diamond Head hike isn't a leisurely stroll in the park... you're going uphill a long way and it'll make you sweat!
Bringing a flashlight would be a good idea, because the majority of the hike is on an unpaved and and sometimes uneven path. Which can be a problem for a pre-dawn hike.
We didn't exactly get to see the sun rise per se. We arrived at the top in plenty of time, there were some clouds on the horizon.
Go inside the bunker, all the way to the back, to access the spiral interior staircase to complete the pathway loop. Seems like a lot of people aren't aware that they need to go into the bunker to do that.

I'd recommend having at least $30 per person in cold hard cash on hand, to pay for lunch etc.

If you don't wear sneakers, you could have a little trouble walking over seaside areas with sharp lava rock...

Hello J.L,

Thank you so much for your review. We are glad you had a had a good time with John. The weather in December is really like our rainy season so it has been very cloudy recently in the early mornings. Sneakers are definitely recommended especially for the hiking part. But we are glad you had a good time on the tour and we hope you enjoyed your entire stay in Hawaii.

big fat turtles!

It does get pretty crowded around the snorkelling site, as there are lots of tour boats which will come to Turtle Canyon.
The site is close to Waikiki Beach, so it's a pretty short boat ride.

The turtles will occasionally surface. Make sure to stay six feet away from them to give them some room.
