The basics

The Halona Blowhole is a popular attraction and included in many sightseeing tours, especially circle-island tours, and tours covering the east and north shores of Oahu. Combine it with nearby attractions, such as a hike to Diamond Head or Koko Head Crater, or visit independently on a hop-on hop-off trolley tour. A platform at the lookout gives you a safe way to see the blowhole, while a path leads down to Halona Beach Cove.
