About Star Gaze Hawaii
Star Gaze Hawaii invites you to indulge your imagination and stand in wonder during a stargazing experience at the Westin Hapuna Beach Resort. Personally, see the cosmos up close while learning from a talented astronomer and learning star lore and science. It’s stargazing without limits! No long, bumpy drive up the mountain, no high altitude or oxygen issues -- just put on your shorts and aloha shirt, grab your whole family and enjoy the stars.

My son and I had booked a view of the stars with Star Gaze Hawaii, but it got canceled because of heavy cloud cover. They quickly refunded my purchase and offered me the option to reschedule to another night. We saw the beautiful stars 2 days later and had a great time!

We are happy that your schedule was flexible and that we could show you the wonders of the Universe. We always offer a choice to rebook or refund payment in the case of bad weather. We have no control over the weather and must work around mother nature.

This was a great experience! There were 2 telescopes available to view different stars and galaxies. The presenters explained what we were looking at and the significance of it all. The Southern Cross was even visible! A great way to spend an evening near Hapuna Beach!

We enjoy sharing the Universe with everybody through our telescopes. June features many galaxies and globular clusters. The Ring Nebula in Lyra makes its annual evening apparition with a fascinating storyline about the death of small low-mass stars. We are happy that you enjoyed our presentation.

The sky was so beautiful and clear in Hawaii near Hapuna Beach. It was awesome to see it up close with their telescopes and to have them explain to us what we were looking at. Memorable and my kids enjoyed it!

Mauna Kea is ideal for astronomical observatories - not people. Only amateur astronomers go up there to observe the sky - dressed in arctic gear. Professional astronomers remotely operate the telescopes. There are age limits for ascending, and that high altitude environment is harsh. Vacationers with young children need a warm, friendly environment such as our sea-level dark site. We are happy that you found our stargazing activity enjoyable and informative.

The guides were fantastic. Even though it was a little bit cloudy, we still saw everything we wanted. I also got a picture of the moon, which I will cherish.

Mahalo! Mother Nature does a veil dance using the clouds to direct us to hidden treasures. Our astronomers have decades of experience finding interesting things between the clouds. Our Astronomers also have vast collections of astronomy anecdotes to keep the customer enthralled if the clouds block the sky. We seek to educate and be a guide to the Universe.
