Hawaii

Say aloha to Oahu!

Oahu Nickname: "The Gathering Place", Hawaii is an amazing destination for school groups because it allows travel to an exotic pacific island full of culture and beauty while remaining in the United States! No passport required!

Oahu is the third largest of the Hawaiian Islands and most populated island in the State of Hawaii. There are 227 miles of shoreline, and two volcanos!  Enjoy the beaches of Waikiki, visit the historic Peal Harbor, hike up the face of Diamond Head Volcano, and see the immense waves at the North Shore. Visitors can learn to make leis, hula dance and enjoy a luau!  Take your group to Hawaii, any time of year!

Kuhio Beach Torch Lighting and Hula Show

Almost every evening between 6 and 7 there is a torch lighting and conch shell ceremony at Kuhio Beach in Waikiki, followed by performances featuring some of Hawaii's finest hula performers.

The USS Arizona Memorial

The USS Arizona Memorial, located at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, marks the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors killed on the USS Arizona during the Attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 by Japanese imperial forces, and commemorates the events of that day. Accessible only by boat, it crosses above the middle of the sunken hull of the battleship without touching it. Historical information about the attack, shuttle boats to and from the memorial, and general visitor services are available at the associated USS Arizona Memorial Visitor Center.

Diamond Head Volcano

The volcanic tuff cone is a United States State Monument. A 0.75-mile (1.1-km) hike leads to the edge of the crater's rim.

Hanauma Bay

Hanauma is a marine embayment formed within a volcanic cone and located along the southeast coast of the Island of O'ahu in the Hawaiian Islands. It is both a Nature Preserve and a Marine Life Conservation District. Reflecting changes in attitude, its name has changed over time from Hanauma Bay Beach Park to Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

Pali Lookout

Located at Nuuanu Pali State Park, the lookout overlooks the 985-foot cliffs of the Koolau Mountain Range. And yes, it is extremely windy. The trade winds blow through the valley between the high mountains on either side, forming a strong wind tunnel of sorts. On extra windy days, you can even lean into the wind and let the gusts hold you up.

Holona Blowhole

The blowhole is a natural occurrence formed by molten lava tubes from volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago. The lava tubes run to the ocean and, when the surf is right, the blowhole shoots water up to 30 feet in the air. The larger the waves, the larger the spray.
