  1. Blowhole, Hawaiʻi Kai, Oʻahu. Blowholes are narrow chimneys that connect lava terraces to sea caves or lava tubes below them. Waves rolling into the sea caves or lava tubes force a powerful rush of compressed air, spray, and white-water through the chimneys that erupts on the terraces as spectacular fountains. Blowholes are sometimes called "spouting horns" because of the loud roaring noises created by the rushing air and water coming up the chimney. The blowhole at Hālona Point is one of Oʻahu's famous visitor attractions.
