Hi, this is Carey, a.k.a The Telescope Guy.
I started The Telescope Guy "street performer" show June 26th of 2009 and by June 25th, 2013, I performed 678 nights, giving approximately 43,723 views through the telescope.
January 1, 2012 I started Hawaiian Night Sky Tours giving astronomy tours from a dark location such as Oahu's north shore.
In August 2012, I added a tour called Custom Island Tours, giving private tours of Oahu.
January 1, 2015 I changed the company name to Custom Island Tours, LLC.
In 2015, we gave 539 tours to 2,613 people, including 502 circle island tours, 12 astronomy tours, 2 City Lights tours, and 23 other.
In 2016, we gave 658 tours to 3,346 people, including 629 circle island tours, 14 astronomy tours, 3 City Lights tours, and 12 other.
I served 20 years in the Navy as an Aviation Electronics Technician. I was stationed at NAS Barbers Point, Hawaii from 1987 - 1994, with AIMD, and VP-1 where I did deployments to Adak, Alaska; Misawa, Japan; and Diego Garcia, BIOT. My last command was the USS Nimitz where I served two 6 month tours in the Persian Gulf.
I retired from the Navy Dec. 1, 2006 and moved back to Hawaii where I spent one year working to establish residency, and started college January of 2008.
I completed my AA December of 2010, and started working toward a BEd in Science for Secondary Education in January of 2011.
Two of my dream jobs were to be a High School Science Teacher, or a Planetarium Director.
