Shipwreck Beach Lanai

iDrone Hawaii

Lanai is the smallest of the publicly accessible Hawaiian Islands.  The location of the island creates strong winds and treacherous Pacific Ocean currents which have caused many shipwrecks over the years.  In this video, contributor iDrone Hawaii uses a DJI Phantom 4 drone to fly over a wreck off of Lanai's Shipwreck Beach, so called because of the number of wrecks which inhabit the sea bottom off the island's shores.

Chris Borg
