All experiences are led by James, an Analog-Astronaut and Pro Astro-Photographer.

He will take you on a journey through the galaxy with his laser pointer and astro-camera that captures more stars than you can ever see looking through a telescope. See faint details of nebulas, star clusters and galaxies that will blow your mind. Epic photos will also be taken of you with the stars.

All medium resolution photos taken throughout the trip of deep space objects and of your group are included in the price.

Photo upgrades are available

**This is the only stargazing adventure in Hawaii that doesn't do stargazing tours when the moon is brighter than 20%.

When the moon is brighter than that, the night sky is too bright and the stars are too few to properly enjoy stargazing. All time slots are hand-selected for optimal stargazing views.

Van capacity is 10
Caravan options are available
Maximum of 15 guests per experience

This was an absolutely breathtaking experience! It truly puts into perspective how vast the universes are and how we are just a spec of dust. Husband and I are avid stargazers and learned so much new information from this particular experience. James is highly experienced, knowledgeable, humble and kind. The information he provides about the stars, planets, nebulas and galaxies was particularly fascinating. He is extremely talented and hardworking and we truly appreciate all the attention to detail throughout the night. Def book this unforgettable experience. You will not regret it.

This was likely the most incredible thing you can do on the big island short of getting up close with active lava flows (though they’re not active right now). We had an incredible time learning more about astrophotography and witnessing an expert at work. Highly recommend!

James is amazing. He’s able to find the best secret location for stargazing and he’s great at photography. He’s also kind enough to share with some photography tips after the experience even though it’s very late. This experience made my Big Island trip and is very unforgettable!

Epic evening with Epic Tours. Besties trip to Hawaii, looking for something outside the box to do. We are not ones for tours per se but we were looking for a unique experience that was not your typical Luau. Enter James and Epic Tours. The top of a volcano at night to wish upon a star AND get a cool photo for the gram? Count us in. James was extremely professional and personable from the get go. Several emails telling us exactly what to expect, where to meet and what to wear. And text messages that made us perfectly comfortable to meet a stranger on top of a dark mountain. When anyone spends on a tour you hope to get your money’s worth. Let me tell ya, James did not disappoint. This guy is so smart, charming, so well spoken, crazy stories and he has a ridiculous knowledge of what’s happening up in that sky. It’s a bummer it’s so dark up there because James is also quite easy on the eyes. I won’t spoil anything, you have to go see for yourself. Let’s just say you will not believe what you will be able to see and learn up there. James is an expert and super passionate about what he does and you can tell he is so excited to share it with his guests. If you want something different to write home about in Hawaii…this is a MUST!  We all know those sunsets and rainbows in Hawaii are epic. But wait til you see those stars with James. Thank you James…forever starry eyed 🤩 …⭐️ Kristy (& Jen)
