My name is Adventure.

I’ll be your host today as I take you to the Halona Blowhole, which is situated to the northeast of Hanauma Bay, between Sandy Beach and Lanai Lookout, and has the approximate address of:

Halona in the Hawaiian language means blowhole.

The Halona Blowhole brings tourists in from miles around and is a popular tourist attraction here on Oahu, in Hawaii.

On windy days and especially when the tide is high, the ocean winds sends waves in to the shore where the lava rock formations shoots the water up high into the air through the lava tube.

Sudden changes in tides that take place just offshore make for a strong current that’s called the Moloka'i Express, and has been known to drag people out to the ocean.

Numerous accidents and even deaths have occurred at this landmark because of people ignoring the warning signs. 

Below Halona is one of the most dangerous ocean currents in the world due to the Ka Iwi channel.

You have a great view of Sandy Beach, the Hālona Blowhole, and Cockroach Cove (also known as Hālona Cove), as well as the Island of Molokai and the Island of Lanai.
