Highlights

  • Take pictures of the world famous Waikiki surf breaks while learning about the history of surfing
  • Identify one of a dozen birds and tally sightings on your free bird ID card
  • Enjoy a relaxing walk through Kapi'olani Park at the foothills of Diamond Head volcano while your guide explains the history of the Hawaiian islands

Description

Begin the walk at the 'Surfer on a Wave' statue located across from the Honolulu Zoo. Upon arrival, receive a bird ID card that you will use to tally the number and types of birds spotted during the tour. Your guide will provide an explanation of the geology of the Hawaiian islands. Stroll down Queen's Beach, and learn about the arrival of the first Hawaiians of the island. Identify the local plants and trees that you pass, and learn about their historical and spiritual significance. At the Waikiki Natatorium War Memorial, your guide explains the arrival of the first Europeans to Hawai'i and the subsequent involvement of Hawaiians in World Wars. Take pictures at the world-famous Kaimana Beach as you learn about the significance of the area as a place of Hawaiian resistance following the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom. If you're lucky, an endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal might be on the beach resting! With only 45 of these seals on the island, it is a special treat to see one up close. Enter Kapi'olani Park and enjoy a locally-made mochi ice cream under a picturesque Banyan Tree. The tour then winds back to the starting point as you pass along the foothills of the iconic Diamond Head volcano. On the final portion of the walk, put your bird-spotting skills to the test as you search the trees for the indigenous Manu-o-Ku bird that frequently nests in the canopy above. The tour ends in front of the Honolulu Zoo, where you can easily walk back to central Waikiki or take a bus back to your hotel.
