Parrots in Paradise Sanctuary
Every parrot has a story. You’ll learn all about our rainbow-colored rescues in Kona’s only parrot sanctuary. We’ll start with our mission: to give every displaced parrot a nutritious diet, large space to fly, and a safe place to interact with other parrots (and people). Next, we'll take a walk around the sanctuary, where you can get to know the range of personalities of cockatoos, lovebirds, macaws, and more species. Throughout the tour, you will have many photo opportunities, especially with our well-trained parrots. Other things to note: Wear casual clothes, closed-toe shoes, sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat, and bring a camera. Parrots in Paradise Sanctuary is also home to two rescue dogs, two Holstein cows and two sulcata tortoise. While we like to keep our group sizes small to enhance a personal experience, we are open to hosting larger family/friend groups with more than six individuals.
CHOCOLATE, VANILLA & COFFEE FARM TOUR
Aloha and Welcome as we gather around the information table at Sharkey's 100-year old farmhouse in the historic plantation village of Papaikou. Sample our freshly brewed 100% Hawaiian coffee or cacao tea, grown right here on the farm. From there we begin an easy walk through our orchards where you'll learn about Hawaiian coffee growth and production. Interwoven the coffee are rows of cacao trees. Depending on the time of year, you can usually see tiny flowers and large, multi-colored pods hanging from trunks and branches. Long, heavy vanilla vines grow up the cacao trees, nature's perfect trellis! We'll show you how each vanilla orchid is delicately hand-pollinated to produce long "hands" of vanilla beans. We'll then proceed to the "Slab" where the pods are 'cracked' before the fermentation process. Next we move into the greenhouse where flats of newly planted seedlings just beginning their journey grow alongside large screens filled with coffee and cacao beans slowly drying to perfection. Finally we'll move into our certified Chocolate Kitchen where the Magic happens! Who wants a taste? Free samples!

Madam Pele's Late Night Hike
Please note: lava is currently flowing so this experience is being held as a late night lava viewing cultural hike to Kīlauea, THE most active volcano in the WORLD, with history of the flows/eruptions, the volcanoes that formed the island, Hawaiian deities and more! You will leave with a greater appreciation and understanding of Hawaii and the culture! In this tour we will hike to one of the best viewing locations for lava on the island (when active), a lookout to where Madam Pele resides! The hike is less than an hour roundtrip and mostly flat terrain. I will also share mo’olelo (stories), cultural information, and the history of the 2018 lava flow which drastically impacted many things on island including the area we will be walking on. I also host lava hikes that are a bit longer than this tour with a more adventurous hike to a location you would not find on your own. This shorter hike often has other people and tour companies but the longer one does not have other tour companies. If you are confused about the options, please message me for clarification and to make sure you book the experience you are looking for :) Each tour is different depending on the moon phases, cloud coverage and lava intensity. I can customize any tour and add dates that are not on the calendar if schedule permits.

Then we mosey on down to the newest black sand beach, created from the 2018 flow and swim in three different geothermal ponds, including one hard to find, picturesque hot spring in the jungle that will not disappoint! I provide rafts for floating in these healing, saline and mineral waters, but you can swim or soak if you prefer as well! These are the ONLY hot springs on ANY of the Hawaiian islands. I give various information about the island, share mo’olelo (stories) & tell about different endemic plants we will come across as well! There is no lava flow to view here, the ponds are heated by the lava underground making natural hot tubs! The springs range from about 99-105 degrees depending on the time of day. Being the east side of the island, we have beautiful sunrises. This is truly the best time of day to visit the hot springs as the weather is still cool to enjoy the heated water and we most always have the area to ourselves due to the time of day, making it feel like your private oasis!
