Come visit our facility in Kailua-Kona! Learn about octopus, see them up close and personal, and even feed one!
Booking is only available online. Same day booking not available.
Tours are only offered twice a day at 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM.
Due to limited space of the lab, only 25 people can book per tour, at a first come first serve basis.
Directions from Kona:
- From Queen Ka'ahumanu Highway (Highway 19), make a left down Makako bay drive (the road for the energy lab - there is large white scaffolding with solar panels).
- Take that road ALL the way to the end. It will end at the research campus (make sure you have passed the lobster farm).
- Go through the gates of the research campus (they are always open).
- Make your first left, and you should see the lab on the right!
If coming from the airport or Waikoloa, make a right down Makako bay drive from Highway 19.
