Full description

Enjoy a fully narrated adventure starting with a stop at a Kona Coffee Farm. Walk through a lava tube and orchards with your guide to learn about the harvesting and milling process while sampling a warm cup of Kona-grown coffee.

Continue through the scenic view of the Kealakekua Bay and South Point, the southernmost point of the United States. Relax at Punalu’u Black Sand Beach to spot marine life, like Hawaii’s green sea turtles, from the shore.

Next, go to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Tour the Chain of Craters Road for the “mountain to sea” experience. Stop by and learn about volcanic eruptions and flow sites, the park coastline, and the Holei Sea Arch. Visit Kilauea Iki Lookout, steam vents, Halema’uma’u Crater, and crater rim trail.

After enjoying dinner at a local café near the park, visit a secluded location for stargazing. Depending on weather conditions, observe stars, planets, galaxies, and 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.

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.

Aaron was an amazing tour guide and tried to make our experience great. He had snack bars ready, took us to amazing spots for pictures and touring, and willingly went out of his way to bring us to great places outside of the tour. He even brought us to a warmer area for star gazing
