We wanted to do some kind of stargaze but didn't want to spend $1000 and be cold at Mauna Kea. Wayne and his wife taught us a lot of astronomy we did/would not know. I was even surprised yesterday when I had a credit as my hubby couldn't go and I didn't cancel as figured it was too late the same day.

Hawaii has excellent atmospherics to do stargazing. The crystal clear views of elusive star clusters allow us to transport your imagination across light-years of space. We carefully select objects on our observing list to include crowd-pleasers plus a few obscure ones that have an unexpected impact. Did you know about the Sting-ray, Sea turtle, and Patrick-the-starfish clusters before our tour? We change our list with the seasons, so please keep us in mind the next time you are in Hawaii.

A beautiful clear nite near the Westin Hapuna Beach made for a magical experience. Wayne and his wife are incredibly knowledgeable and informative. Don't miss this.

Very wonderful. Great telescopes & knowledgeable guides. Move scopes around showed what we would see on tablet. Easy access to scope & organized group so we would see all items in the two scopes. Several families & couples

Wayne and his wife did an amazing job. We were able to see the Orion nebula forming new stars, several galaxies, and many many constellations. They both brought their obvious passion and knowledge and made the experience unforgettable. I would highly recommend this.
