Wasn’t sure what to expect and we were very happy with the experience we had. They had 2 high powered telescopes and everyone had plenty of time and opportunities to look at various constellations and stars, as well as the moon. Very cool.

If you like astronomy this is $40 well spent. The owner / operators know their equipment (11" Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain scopes) inside and out. In an hour they will show you 20 or so deep space objects as well as any planets that happen to be...More

Even though we were expected (included in our group of 6 was a 7-year old and a 4-year old), we were essentially not greeted. There was little organization in how everyone there looked into the ONE telescope (website said there would be two). We have...More

We decided to go with Star Gaze Hawaii because our children were too young to go up Mauna Kea. It was a fun experience.

We booked this experience because of physical limitations preventing us from going on one of the observatory excursions at high altitudes. The advertising (on Star Gaze Hawaii's website I believe) for this experience promoted it as being just as good because the view of the...More

It was a great time. My kids enjoyed seeing the stars and so did we. I think the adults had more fun then the kids but the kids learned a lot so it was well worth it.

Nice family oriented informative tour off the night sky. Easy to re-book as well. Looking through an 11 inch SCT was a bonus.
