What you'll do

Every parrot has a story. You’ll learn all about our rainbow-colored rescues in Kona’s only parrot sanctuary.

We’ll start with our mission: to give every displaced parrot a nutritious diet, large space to fly, and a safe place to interact with other parrots (and people).

Next, we'll take a walk around the sanctuary, where you can get to know the range of personalities of cockatoos, lovebirds, macaws, and more species.

Throughout the tour, you will have many photo opportunities, especially with our well-trained parrots.
Other things to note
Wear casual clothes, closed-toe shoes, sunscreen, and a hat, and bring a camera. Parrots in Paradise Sanctuary is also home to three rescue dogs and a tortoise.

I grew up on the Big Island and have always been surrounded by lush trees, the captivating ocean, and tropical animals that give Hawaii an energy that can’t be replaced.

Our family started noticing a large amount of parrots who outlived their owners (parrots can live up to 100 years)! There was no place for them to call home, so we decided to build one.

Since then, my family has rescued parrots globally for the last 18 years.

The loving hearts of the family that runs this sanctuary make it a special opportunity to experience and see how much they care for these beautiful birds with long lives. The views from the property are incredible, the birds are happy and well-cared for, and you will be doing your small part in contributing to their cause. It was fun and they let us stay and talk a while, and did not rush us off. Good people, great and worthy cause, and a wonderful time!

This experience was amazing!!! My husband and I wanted to do something cool and exciting while here and this went above and beyond our expectations!! Each bird has a special story and they’re all beyond beautiful!!! We got to interact with them, take tons of photos, and experience them all up close and personal. Kissy was our favorite bird and Lola but they’re all gorgeous!!!! I highly recommend this to everyone! My husband and I got special feathers that we will add to our photo album to go along with our photos from our trip! This was a special experience and one I will remember forever! Thank you Gerald! ❤️

I can’t recommend this enough! We learned so much and getting to interact with the birds was truly magical. Plus, by going you’re contributing to an amazing cause!

This was a highly informative and fun experience. So many different parrots. We were taken inside some of the cages and got to experience up close and personal interaction with some of the birds. The experience was worth twice the money and if anyone ever calls me a “bird brain” again I will consider it a compliment.
