Mitä teet

**For special perks, send us a message on Instagram @EpicTours before booking.**

All experiences are led by James, an Analog-Astronaut and Pro Astro-Photographer.

He will take you on a journey through the galaxy with his laser pointer and astro-camera that captures more stars than you can ever see looking through a telescope. See faint details of nebulas, star clusters and galaxies that will blow your mind. Epic photos will also be taken of you with the stars.

All medium resolution photos taken throughout the trip of deep space objects and of your group are included in the price.

Photo upgrades are available

**This is the only stargazing adventure in Hawaii that doesn't do stargazing tours when the moon is brighter than 20%.

When the moon is brighter than that, the night sky is too bright and the stars are too few to properly enjoy stargazing. All time slots are hand-selected for optimal stargazing views.

Van capacity is 10
Caravan options are available
Maximum of 15 guests per experience

The stargazing trip was an amazing experience - the view of the stars at Mauna Kea are incredible. James is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide; and provides tons of information on the stars, galaxies, and nebulas that we could see from our viewpoint James also provides wonderful photos as well!

Incredible experience, well worth it. I knew we would be able to see a lot of stars but never expected the view to be so amazing.

Expected this would be a private experience, but was mostly a way to churn through photos for a large group (12-16). We didn’t get the pictures we wanted, nor was there much options for getting pictures from different locations or viewpoints. I was disappointed given how expensive the tour was.

This was an absolutely breathtaking experience! It truly puts into perspective how vast the universes are and how we are just a spec of dust. Husband and I are avid stargazers and learned so much new information from this particular experience. James is highly experienced, knowledgeable, humble and kind. The information he provides about the stars, planets, nebulas and galaxies was particularly fascinating. He is extremely talented and hardworking and we truly appreciate all the attention to detail throughout the night. Def book this unforgettable experience. You will not regret it.

This was likely the most incredible thing you can do on the big island short of getting up close with active lava flows (though they’re not active right now). We had an incredible time learning more about astrophotography and witnessing an expert at work. Highly recommend!

Plain and neutral colors are preferred. Black and white together can offer too much contrast as well, so I don’t recommend that. The best colors are deep red and shades of blue. Patterns or prints distract and date your photo.
