Enjoy views of the Pacific Ocean, an historical lighthouse, and a diverse bird sanctuary when you visit Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge. Gaze at residents such as red-footed boobies, tropicbirds, Laysan albatross, great frigatebirds, and nene, and try to spot humpback whales and Hawaiian monk seals in the ocean. To learn about the historical significance of the lighthouse, and the wildlife that resides on the refuge, read informative displays at the visitor center and speak to staff there. There is also a small museum and volunteer center where you can educate yourself further.
