1. Re: Kilauea Lighthouse celebration May 1-5

I'm jealous of anyone who can take advantage of the lighthouse tours. I happened upon this a few years ago and was able to snag a spot.

The tour docents are very knowledgeable and entertaining. Being able to look up through the lens and then stand next to it after hearing its history was great. Also, being able to take pictures through the lighthouse windows gives you a unique perspective on the refuge itself.

One thing to keep in mind is that the tour sizes are small. If you're interested in doing a tour, get there early to reserve a spot. I recall mine was for a couple of hours after I got there so I grabbed a burger at Duane's and wandered around Princeville before returning.
