It’s not uncommon to see all five of the endangered species birds as well as 15-20 other varieties during the tour. Because the grounds stretch from makai to mauka, there is often an opportunity to see Hawaiian monk seals, green sea turtles, and the pueo – Hawaiian short-eared owl – as well.
The tour offers a unique view dating back to the days of Chris Hemmeter, the original developer of the property. Alan expertly guides guests through the development of the property including the original lagoon islands usage, the original trails, and their intended use. The property has a rich and unique history that will keep you on the edge of your seat, all while viewing the endangered and common birds, ponds, vegetation and unique tropical surroundings.
