To inspire and promote understanding, appreciation and conservation of Pacific marine life. That is the mission statement of the Waikiki Aquarium. This beautiful facility in Waikiki on Oahu, Hawaii is home to some fun, fascinating creatures and is cherished by locals and visitors alike.

Hike video of the Pali Puka trail on Oahu, Hawaii. Pali Puka is a short, but steep hike with some pretty incredible views of the island. Wind gusts make the several open ridges pretty scary, but if you take your time with it, this rewarding hike is magical. At the top of the hike there is an open rock "window" looking out onto the ocean.

The hike up the Diamond Head crater on Oahu, Hawaii is short, fun, and unbarably hot at some points. I was asked along the hike by my cousins Troy and Ciara who were spending their last day or so in style, in the Hawaiian sun, overlooking one of the best views of the island and ocean you could hope to find.
