Extremely accurate bathymetric map of Oahu, Hawaii and surrounding area. Drawn to Oahu’s beautiful beaches, rich history, and 25-foot surf, more than 5 million people visit the island every year and 75% of Hawaii’s resident population call it home. The island was formed when two large shield volcanoes rose from the sea floor and intersected. During a period of higher sea levels a few hundred thousand years ago, a coral reef formed where Honolulu is today. When the waters receded, they left behind a sturdy platform upon which the city now stands.
This three dimensional map is carved from Baltic birch wood, framed and has a acrylic covering to protect the wood. Professional cartographers are used in the creation of each individual chart in order to insure the utmost accuracy. Some maps come in two sizes in order to fit virtually any area in the home, office or boat. We have charts from areas across the U.S. available on a drop ship basis. This is a great item at an unbelievable price. If you are searching for a particular area, please call or email.
The color will differ slightly with both the frame and background as each of the maps are hand stained and may vary from the picture.
