About your host

Aloha friends! I'm an astrophotographer and the owner of Epic Tours Hawaii, a 4x award winning adventure tour company that I started in 2013. Years prior, I was a 2 sport college athlete and double major at the University of Hawaii. For the past 6+ years i've been guiding small-group tours to see lava up close, exploring waterfalls and photographing the wonders of the Milky Way Galaxy. …

What we’ll do

Aloha friends. We will be meeting at the Mauna Kea Recreation Area. I will then drive our group to areas around Mauna Kea/Mauna Loa volcanoes to take photos of the stars. Most nights I am able to take you to secluded spots, miles away from the nearest vehicle for the ultimate stargazing experience. Enjoy a green laser pointer show of the most popular constellations, planets, space objects…

What else you should know

Each experience varies depending current weather conditions 100% refund if we need to cancel Max group size is 9 people Even though it might be raining at your airbnb, we will actually be driving above those clouds! :) So don't worry about the rain. If the weather is bad, I will let you know.

What I’ll provide

Bus
We will be taking a 4x4 van to a great spot for astrophotography. The main thing that I look for in photography is secluded spots away from other people and light pollution. No one is allowed to stargaze at the summit, so please be aware that no companies stargaze up there and we won't either.
Equipment
Astro-Photos & Jackets I'll email you High Resolution photos from your experience as well as bring warm parka jackets.

What to bring

Closed-Toed Shoes
Pants
Hat and Gloves (Optional)

Where you'll be

We will meet at the Mauna Kea Recreation Area and get into my tour vehicle. There are a number of different spots that we can drive to for the stargazing photos, depending on the weather and best spots for photos. Using a high powered laser, i'll point out different stars and space objects in the night sky, along with some neat facts. After about 20 minutes of that, i'll take photos of you guys in unique poses with the night sky.
