Hawaii's Volcano Journalists & Ecotour Specialists

Kīlauea volcano, Hawai'i

VolcanoDiscovery Hawai‘i is now proud to support educational excursions through the non-profit Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park!

By supporting the Friends, clients are provided with a captive expert guide of the same high quality but at a significantly lower cost than a luxury tour, with proceeds directly funding forest restoration, the Hawksbill Turtle (Honu ‘ea) Recovery Project, the Nēnē Recovery Project, the park's Junior Ranger program, and the Youth Internship Program for underserved, at-risk students to work in the park.

To experience the best of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park with an expert instructor or naturalist guide, contact the Hawai‘i Volcanoes Institute-On-Demand at +1-808-985-7373 or by email. Guides with VolcanoDiscovery training are available by special request through the Friends, and you may specifically request 2014 Hawai‘i Island Ecotour Guide of the Year Erik Storm, 2013 Hawai‘i Island Ecotour Guide of the Year Arthur Wierzchos, or geologist Philip Ong based on availability.

VolcanoDiscovery continues to provide volcano news and global volcano travel despite discontinuing its Hawai‘i luxury tour service.

2014 Status: Educational outings in and out of the National Park are available through the FHVNP link above.
