take a tour!
We are excited to show you around. Before you plan a visit, please review tour prerequisites:

  • Reservations Required - email us to reserve your spot(s) at visit@magicalcreaturesofhamakua.org

  • Tours Happen Rain or Shine (sometimes both) -  though tours may cancel for extreme weather, or if our driveway is flooded, please check the forecast on tour day & dress accordingly

  • Donation - Visiting the sanctuary is free, however we kindly ask for a donation to help care for our residents. Suggested amount is $30 per adult guest.

  • Group Sizes Are Limited - A maximum of 10 people—big & small—allows us to keep all humans & animals safe and free to enjoy each other's company

  • Please Arrive Early - Sign-in is 15 minutes before tour scheduled start time

  • Refresh Before Arrival - There are no public restrooms or concessions at the sanctuary, so please show up ready-to-tour. The two closest public restrooms are the Minit Stop on Highway 19 (just downhill from us) and the Country Store in Papaaloa (next village over towards Hilo)

  • Tour Guidelines - Once you've reserved a tour, please familiarize your party with our TOUR GUIDELINES to ensure a magical visit!
