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.

What we’ll do

Explore parts of the Big Island with the owner/photographer of Epic Tours Hawaii. Throughout the trip, I will take portrait and landscape photos of you (if you wish.) We will venture inside a lava tube cave to take unique "lava" photos, check out waterfalls and venture above the clouds to a secluded stargazing location. I'll take photos of you with the stars and also use a laser pointer to…

What else you should know

As of August 10th, 2019 the Mauna Kea protest is not disrupting our stargazing. We have secret locations that we have been going to for years. 100% refund for unfavorable weather conditions. Eat before the trip to minimize altitudes sickness. Vacation Rental pickups aren't provided.

What I’ll provide

Transportation
This trip starts and ends at the Mauna Kea Recreation Area. Free parking, safe and easy drive from Vacation Rentals
Photography
I will take unique photos at a lava cave, waterfall and above the clouds with the stars. Large file sizes are given complimentary, $200 value!

What to bring

Wear/bring pants for the stargaze portion
Athletic shoes or hiking boots for exploring in the cave
Dark colored clothing is preferred for the astro-photography
Make sure to eat a healthy meal before starting the trip. That will give you at least 3 hours to digest your food before our stargazing experience in the mountains. This will help reduce altitude sickness

Where you'll be

Our first stop is at one of the tallest banyan trees in the US as well as a 90 foot waterfall. To give you more of an intimate experience there, we will take photos after peak hours. Right after that, we will do a modest amount of spelunking into a lava tube cave around twilight for some unique light painting cave photography. Then it's time for the main event, a stargazing presentation and astrophotography up in the mountains.
