There are so many sites to see on the island of Oahu. Listed is some of the locations Blue Skies of Oahu tours offer.
Diamond Head, located at the end of Waikiki, is the most renowned volcanic crater on this earth. The volcano has been extinct for over 150,000 years. The original name for the crater was Leahi, meaning “brow of the tuna.” If you look intently you will see the resemblance. The crater was later given the name Diamond Head in the 1800’s by British sailors as they sailed toward Oahu and first viewed the glimmer of the calcite crystals in the lava rock crater. At a distance the sun shining upon the crystals made them appear to look like diamonds. Diamond Head is 3,520 ft in diameter with a 760 ft summit.
Hanauma Bay is the most popular snorkeling area with its vast variety of marine life living in the bay. This crescent-shaped bay is the home to green sea turtles, yellow tangs, trumpet fish, and the state fish named Humuhumunukunukuapuaa! Say that ten times really fast!
