From Kona:

                 -Head north on Highway 19 (Queen Kaahumanu Highway) and make a left turn at Kaiminani Dr./Kahilihili St. (you should see a sign that says "Hawaii Ocean Science Technology Park").

                 -Follow that road until you get to a stop sign, and make a right.

                 -Head down towards the beach, and continue parallel to the beach all the way to the end! You should get to a gated "Research Campus." Enter through the gates and make a left at the last palm tree. You should see the facility directly to the left.

From Waikoloa:

                 -Same as above but you will head south on Highway 19, and make a right at Kaiminani Drive/Kahilihili St.



Make sure to arrive 15 minutes early. **Gates to the research campus will be closed on the weekends and holidays.** Please pull over to the side and wait for staff to let you in 10-15 minutes before tour time.
