    Approx. 5 minutes past Hanauma Bay we'll visit the Halona Blowhole, where you'll be treated to this natural attraction on Oahu's Ka Iwi coast, where waves create a stunning spray of water up to 30 feet high. It is a popular spot for photography and is easily accessible, located next to the Halona Beach Cove.
