Day 2 in Hawaii was overcast. It was still warm but the sun wasn't out so we thought it was a good day to hop onto a bus and hike up Diamond Head Crater.
Diamond Head Crater used to be a volcano that is now dormant and was once used as Hawaii's first military reservation. Now people hike up Diamond Head to enjoy the beautiful views of Waikiki and the Ocean.
I think this lighthouse was in the movie 50 first dates. Hehe
The bunker we had to crawl out of at the top.

When our hike was over we hopped back onto the bus and made our way to Hanauma Bay for some snorkelling.
Hanauma Bay is a nature preserve because of all the different marine life living in the bay off of the coral. We had to watch a video about the importance of leaving the fish alone and not to step on the coral.
I was super excited to come here because I wanted to see a huge sea turtle really bad.
And of course we took pictures of us and the fish in the water.
The aquarium fish from finding nemo!
As you can see we didn't see a turtle...We were told they're not out as often during this time of year..so I was a bit disappointed but it was still super amazing to see all the fish that we did. And it was crazy how close you could get and they wouldn't even care. Hanauma Bay was probably one of my favorite parts of the trip.
Stay tuned for Day 3.
