Helicopter Tours

The eruption at KÄ«lauea brings worldwide attention to Hawaii's Big Island, and you can capture the adventure on a spectacular "flightseeing" tour with Sunshine Helicopters. Their hi-tech "Black Beauties" are equipped with state-of-the-art video cameras, coffee or tea, pilot personal narration and choreographed music recorded on the live digital video, David Clark stereo aviator headsets with individual volume control, custom built digital recording system, polarized bubble windows, air-conditioned climate control, custom interiors and much more! Fly direct from the Hapuna Helipad to the dramatic action at the volcano and lush green valleys and waterfalls along the way.


Mauna Kea's summit is home to an international astronomy community that is the envy of stargazers worldwide and a must see for families. Experience a peek into worlds beyond and learn a bit about Polynesian celestial navigation that guided canoe voyagers to Hawaii for the first time with Stargaze Hawaii. See constellations outlined with powerful lasers, and deep space objects such as planets, galaxies, nebulae, interesting stars, star clusters, and multiple star systems with Celestron 11 Telescopes.

Hawaii Forest & Trail

Ignite your sense of adventure with Hawaii volcano tours, educational bird watching tours and an inspiring Mauna Kea tour. Hawaii Forest & Trail nature tours allow you to experience majestic nature in a small group, guided tour setting.

Manta Rays

After dinner at Manta, take a stroll down the stone path to Manta Ray Point and watch the nightly show as graceful manta rays "dance" in the spotlight. Tiny crustaceans called krill are attracted to the lights, which in turn attract the manta ray who feed on the krill. Manta Rays, or hahalua in Hawaiian, can reach wingspans of 30 feet yet seem like gentle giants as they turn in slow motion, gliding through the dark water along the shore.
