Stargazers of Hawai'i
Waikiki is dazzling by day, but by night, it’s even better. As the last of the sun dips low into the Pacific, millions of stars are left behind in its wake. All you have to do is open your eyes and look up to see the dramatic night sky.
That said, there’s nothing quite like staying at The Twin Fin Hotel, centrally-located in Waikiki, for a celestial-focused experience like no other. In partnership with Stargazers of Hawai‘i, The Twin Fin Hotel’s new Stellar Stargazing program provides a relaxing and awe-inducing stargazing experience in the exclusive Coconut Club. The hotel’s penthouse level space is 21-stories high above Kalakaua Avenue, overlooking the world-famous Waikiki Beach and offering unobstructed views of the starry night skies.
As part of Stellar Stargazing in Waikiki, a local, knowledgeable astronomer guides you through a cosmic display for a memorable educational experience. You’ll use large telescopes to look up at the same night sky signposts that were the key of the Polynesian navigators as they traveled across the vast Pacific. Learn mythology and science, and see constellations visible in Hawai‘i through special nebula filters and with up to 600x magnification power.
Constellations, Planets, Meteor Showers, and More: What You’ll See in the Hawai‘i Night Sky
Your celestial tour includes an up-close look at both natural and manmade objects alike. See satellites like the International Space Station and the Hubble Space Telescope. You’ll also look at identified stars like Hōkūpaʻa (North Star), constellations like Nāhiku (Big Dipper) or Hānaiakamālama (Southern Cross), the Milky Way, planets, and the moon, which you can take photos of through the telescope with your personal smart device.
Stellar Stargazing is complimentary for guests of The Twin Fin Hotel, as part of our resort fee. The bi-monthly night program is fun for all ages. Stay up to date with us on Facebook for the most current Stellar Stargazing dates and times. We encourage guests to join us at Coconut Club for a 30-minute session with Stargazers of Hawai‘i.
