Shaxi Diamond Head Hiking and Waikiki Tour
Please take this tour when you first arrive.....it will set you up for a great rest of your vacation!!!! You see all of Waikiki and if Lisa is your guide you will be entertained while hearing all about the people and the history of the area. My favorite part was the Natatorium stop.....they need to figure out how to restore that to greatness ASAP!!! Also, Leonard's of course. The hike is a bit more intense than you might think. Super fun tour!

Shaxi Diamond Head Hiking and Waikiki Tour
We are in are 60s and we are not exercise buffs. We walked to the top. We may have had more rests but we made it to the top. Beautiful sights at top of Diamond Head. The driver of the shaxi gave us a tour. She drove us around & gave us great info. Also, she made stops for photos & places of interest. She also sent us photos of the sights we had visited.

Shaxi Diamond Head Hiking and Waikiki Tour
Easy, safe and a one of a kind way to see Waikiki and do the Diamond Head hike! It was not as stifling as a coach bus would have been. The Shaxi car was an open air electric vehicle uniquely decorated that drove us around. Lisa was on time, a great tour guide and very entertaining! She also took and sent a lot of photos of our tour.

Shaxi Diamond Head Hiking and Waikiki Tour
My husband and I did this tour while on our trip and we enjoyed it. There was a little confusion as we thought our tour guide was going to come on the diamond head hike with us but she only dropped us off there and picked up back up. But she took us on a tour around a lot of the area and took many pictures of us! She was super kind and informational. We love the pictures we got from her and the different areas she took us too!

How to Get There

Waikiki Aquarium’s central location and limited parking make driving to the aquarium a difficult prospect. Instead, take the bus (Route 14, 19, 20, or 22) or Waikiki Trolley’s Green Line. The aquarium is also within walking distance of many Waikiki attractions.

The Best Snorkeling in Waikiki

Set along a designated Marine Life Conservation District, Waikiki Aquarium is in front of a living coral reef and some of the best snorkeling spots in Waikiki. After learning to identify marine life in the aquarium, head to nearby Sans Souci Beach and Queens Beach. Both beaches offer sandy areas that make it easy to get into the water. Then, snorkel along a reef teeming with fish and other marine life.
