Diamond Head is a defining feature of the view known to residents and tourists of Waikīkī, and also a U.S. National Natural Monument. The volcanic tuff cone is a United States State Monument. While part of it is closed to the public and serves as a platform for antennas used by the U.S. government, the crater’s proximity to Honolulu’s resort hotels and beaches makes the rest of it a popular destination.

bowfin1

The Submarine USS Bowfin Launched one year to the day after the events of December 7, 1941, the submarine USS Bowfin, dubbed the “Pearl Harbor Avenger,” completed nine successful patrols before eventually arriving at her final, peacetime berth in the waters of Pearl Harbor. Like her namesake – a scrappy, mean-looking fish with powerful jaws, sharp teeth, and a voracious appetite – the Bowfin proved to be a formidable underwater adversary, sinking 44 enemy ships during the war.
