Halona Blowhole Travel Guide
Halona Blowhole is a site that showcases Oahu’s rugged coast and beautifully turbulent seas.
Located about 20 minutes from Waikiki, Halona Blowhole is an underwater cave that spews water into the air like a geyser. It was formed when a piece of the cave’s ceiling collapsed. Now, when it fills with water, the pressure has nowhere to escape but through the hole. This causes water to shoot out in a pressurized mist, resembling a whale’s blowhole. On days with strong winds and high tides, the water flies many feet into the air.
The spectacle is wonderful to witness and there’s a lookout point where you can watch the entire thing unfold. On a clear day, you might even see Moloka’i from the lookout, and in the winter, keep your eyes peeled for humpback whales.
