World / North America / United States of America / Hawaii, Oahu Island Virtual Tour

Hawaii, Oahu Island Virtual Tour

There are 50 states in the USA. The newest state is Hawaii: these are remarkable islands located in the central part of Pacific Ocean, far away from the continent.

The Hawaiian archipelago consists of twenty four islands and atolls, as well as numerous small islands. These islands became inhabitant in VI century B.C., but for many centuries during the legendary round-the-world travel of the era of Great geographical discoveries, sailors passed either to the south or to the north of the islands. Therefore Hawaiian Islands didn't appear on the map for a long time and no one knew about them.

It is considered, that the first European who set foot on their land, was the famous sailor James Cook in 1778. He died a year later in the same place.

The main places of interest on Hawaii are beaches and the amazing nature: volcanoes, waterfalls and national parks. Besides, you can find a rich and extremely beautiful underwater world here. In general, Hawaii isn't called «paradise islands» in vain — it seems that both weather, and the magnificent nature and the beaches of Hawaii are specially created to awaken people's senses.

At present time the volcanic activity on Hawaiian Islands mainly happen in Kilauea: the attached crater located on a slope of Mauna Loa, the second highest mountain. The ongoing eruption of this volcano has been continuing since 1983.
This volcanic eruption is famous for its spectacular fountains of the lava throwing the heated red magma 90 meters up in the air. Such lava fountain can sometimes reach the height of 500 meters. Leaving the crater, lava flows downhill like the bright-red river of basalt with the speed of 30 and more kilometers an hour. It burns absolutely everything on its way, cuts roads, and having reached the sea, it cools down quickly, sending huge pillars of vapor to the sky. For the tourists visiting this tropical paradise these eruptions are an absolutely unforgettable show.

We have already attempted to photograph the volcano eruption, but it's been only partially successful. The day when we have arrived there by the helicopter, lava pipes blocked up, and for the first time in several years the lava stopped flowing into the ocean. Next day the lava has made a new path, and by the time we found the place where lava was flowing into the ocean, a hundred-meter pillar of vapor was already rising there. By that time our helicopter was gone, and we took pictures only from the ground.

lava meets the sea

This is the reason why our interest in Hawaiian Islands hasn't diminished for several years.

Last year we met with Dean Karamehmedovich, a wonderful photographer who lives on the islands. He has been shooting the islands for a long time. You can find an interesting virtual tour across Hawaii here.

And today we present to your attention his aerial photo tour of the Oahu Island.

Because it is a first Dean's tour on our website, we would like to tell couple of words about Dean.

Like many other graduates, he has changed careers over the years from Electrical Engineer into Web-Developer, from Restaurant Owner to Photographer. Become adventure junkie, marathoner, triathlete, coffee drinker, traveler, new media strategist, self-confessed geek and motorcyclist he moved to Hawaii in 2000, the land of hula skirts, big waves and scuba-diving which is another one of his passions. He soon established VTHawaii.com. He landed his first big project in 2004 for Hickam Air Force base on Oahu and then became a full time professional photographer and the leading provider of panoramas in Hawaii.

In the year 2008 VTHawaii was awarded a contract from largest Real Estate company to photograph 1200 geo coded locations from the main Hawaiian islands, every community, every beach and every attraction and my ride begin..

In the year 2009 travel continue extensively to Canada and USA photographing hundreds of hotels in more that hundred cities beginning with CA, AZ, NM next to NY, MN, MI, NH, MA, then Canadian provinces like OT, BC, AB, MB, SK, QC, NB, NS and up to PEI and Newfoundland. He was also inspired to start doing underwater panoramas and even start his own marine life tribute website HawaiiMarineLife.com taking underwater images of endemic Hawaiian marine species.

Recently, AirPano.ru inspired him and after few trial runs from the airplane and helicopter the first demonstration aerial project was successful and VT Hawaii.com was airborne.

What's next?... There are many places to go!

Holidayed at Maui, Kuai, and Oahu January 1997 and Oahu and Hawaii August 1998. Most beautiful Islands for folklore, music and romance. In the Panorama I could not see the Polynesian Cultural Centre Hawaiian village with lagoons attached to the Morm on University ?. Expect to visit again late 2014 !.

Much mahalo for these beautiful sceneries. A real paradise as far as I am concerned and the people are very friendly, with lots of aloha. I lived in Oahu for 5 years (1983-1988), my daughter was born on Queen's Hospital in Downtown Honolulu in 1984. Relocated to L.A. last part of 1988 but I have been visiting families & friends in Oahu since then. Three years ago, my husband and I purchased a retirement home on the Garden Isle and we could not wait to relocate there. We now have a long list of friends wanting to visit us on Kauai once we are there and the list keeps on getting longer.

Letty Dixon, USA

Amazing pictures i would like to be there one day

said azizi, USA

I had a short visit to Oahu in about 1960 and am astounded at the difference. We rented a jeep and traveled around the island, stopping for a luaau (sp?) at a spot I can't remember. Had some poi (ugh!)and fresh pineapple (really delicious!)
Thanks for the view. Why isn't the Arizona on the visual tour? I would love to revisit but can't afford the prices now.

Robert Strader, USA

Nilo Garccia-Colon, Puerto Rico

I have visited Hawaii. Stayed on the the big island of Honolulu. I also took a tour and saw the areas on the map. I also saw the volcano which is 'dead" with the war memorial cemetary on top of it. I also visited the Arizona and viewed the Wall of honor. Where I found my cousins name. There was no word of him after the bombing of the Arizona. A truly heart warming experience. I'm only sorry my aunt and other cousins couldn't see it. All I can say is W O W !!!. I'd love to return to Hawaii someday and see the plantations, and other sites.

Patricia Mixell, USA

i love this city...

Manoj Tudu, India

Hello,I was born and raised in Honolulu,Hawaii for 19 years before it became a State. Back then there was hardly any large hotels on the Island, and I used to surf and paddle canoe in Waikiki beach. When I left the Island to So. California in 1959 everything was cheap and then in around August 1959 Hawaii became a state. I visit once in a while with family over in da Islands. Im now 72 years old and dont look like my age, cause I am very religious as a Jehovahs Witnesses. I really wanted to go back to live, but it is very expensive so all I do is visit once in a while. Mahalo fo dis shaka program and pictures. Bradda Wendell Abbey

Really a new site for me.It's amazing

Broto Ghosh, India

Fabulous to get such a panorama of Hawaii and the islands. We were on Hawaii in '80 and '81, would love to go back again, so much to see, my favorite place for a layed back vacation. Loved it, would even like living there.

Sherry Newton, Canada

It has changed a lot since I was there in 1957! I had seven weeks there on a USAF base in the middle of the island and it is just as beautiful today, by these panaramas! MUCH more built up though in Honolulu itself. Not many people know that it was a British island originally and the national flag (when I was there) featured a Union Flag in the corner. Does it now? Yes, I would love to go back there one day - and to Christmas Island (Kiribati now I think) too.

MAlcolm Powell, United Kingdom

WAS THERE ONCE IN 1986 AND IT WAS AND STILL IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE..WOULD LOVE TO GO BACK BUT I AM TOO OLD TO DO THAT. SAW THE COMMENTS OF A FELLOW CUBAN FROM SPAIN BY THE NAME OF CARLOS E.GONZALEZ CASTRO AND WOULD LIKE TO HAVE HIS E-MAIL SO I CAN COMMUNICATE WITH HIM .....I AM ALSO FROM CUBA.

ARMANDO NIETO, USA

I enjoyed this I have only viewed Hawaii because my son lives there. I do hope to visit soon.

judy murphy, USA

Been and out of Hawaii since 1950. Now days go back to Honolulu to surf at Bellows AFS. Was there in May and part of June. One of the greatest places there is. Anytime I can get on a plane to Honolulu, will go.

Marv Wines, USA

This is awesome the tour of Hawaii reminds me of my trip to Hawaii. Absolutely Amazing!

Marneda See, USA

Looked for Honauma Bay, but could not locate. Trips in 1964, 1970,1979, 1981, 1982, 1984. Many fond memories. As soon as you land, the island welcomes you with its music, breezes, and vistas.

Jean Woody, USA

Amazing. Great place for photography. My dad has been there, but that was many years ago. I would love to go eventually...

Jeremy K., USA

Your photos are wonderful. After 16 visits to the islands they are getting prettier. Thank you for the inspiration, as I just returned after surgery and need something like this. Thanks!!

DUANE SWARTZLANDER, USA

I was born on Oahu in 1937, left in 1942 and returned in 1951. I live on the mainland now, but have been back for several visits. I can't believe the changes. I must say I don't like them. The areas around Koko Head, Sandy Beach, and Kahala have been way over developed. Hawaii now looks like Florida.

John Mowat, USA


Thanks for your opinion, John.

Varvara, AirPano

It would be wonderful to see a panarama of our
island, Kauai, the Garden Island before it gets
too built up like Maui. It really is te most beautiful of all the Hawaiian islands.
Aloha, Betty Jean
