    Guided Tours

    Families, community groups, schools and individuals can access the Hawai‘i Institute of Marine Biology at Moku o Lo‘e (Coconut Island) through our guided walking tours. These tours introduce participants to the history, the wide variety of research conducted at the Institute and its significance to the community. Weekday tours typically run from 9:00 am – Noon and can accommodate up to 40 participants if booked with our larger research vessel, the Honu Kai. Family Sunday tours are offered once a month and are limited to 12 participants per tour. Please visit our web page for a Tour Request Form, or email us.


    Education volunteers make a huge difference to the community. After attending our training sessions many of our volunteers start out by leading walking tours of the island and facility. As they become more and more knowledgeable, they may go on to teach labs or help with overnights. Other volunteer opportunities include our animal care group, the office crew, or those that sign up to help with special projects. Make a difference and volunteer!
