Mauna Kea: Stellar Explorer Tour from Hilo

1. Mauna Kea: Stellar Explorer Tour from Hilo

Visit Rainbow Falls and the Kaumana Caves before heading to your stargazing location. Travel across Saddle Road between Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, 2 of the tallest and biggest volcanoes on Earth. To complete your tour, your guide will take you to one of the preferred locations on Mauna Kea for nighttime stargazing. Observe the deep sky and planetary objects through a large aperture telescope, under one of the darkest and most pristine skies on planet Earth. Enjoy narration from expert astronomers, who have written articles for well-known magazines and worked at world-class observatories for decades. The telescopes are a true purist way to view the night sky. Their fast focal ratio enables you to see sprawling wide-field views of objects that are simply not possible with other telescopes.  Weather permitting and depending on what is visible in the current sky, you can observe galaxies, nebula, star clusters, planets, double star systems, the moon, and much more.

We had an amazing guide Aaron had so much great information, which made the time in the van going from spot to spot, very interesting. If you’re bringing a camera, I highly recommend bringing a tripod for the night time spent at the volcano park and stargazing. You’ll spend about 30 minutes at each spot, so you’ll have plenty of time to capture some long exposure images of the Milky Way.

This tour is a great way to see the island and learn about the history of Hawaii. Our tour guide, Dreu, did an outstanding job of making sure we got the most out of the tour. He kept everyone entertained throughout the drive with historical facts and stories. We had a perfect night. We were able to see the lava glow in the crater and the stars were amazing! I would highly recommend!

Truly a once in a lifetime experience, well with the money. It is a long day but it is required to see all of the areas of the island on the tour. Aaron was unbelievably knowledgeable and was very kind and accommodating. I would recommend sticking with his schedule so you have the opportunity to see everything plus a little extra.

Outstanding driver/guide was extremely knowledgeable about Hawaii history and culture and about stars. Although this is a long trip the driver kept it interesting with stops to see key sights. The volcano was a little disappointing because it stopped erupting on the one day were to see it, but that's nature.

Es war ein langer, toller, interessanter Tag. Voller Erinnerungen die ich mit nach Hause nehmen darf. Mahalo Aaron, dem Guide . Er war so super!!!
