ABOUT – DISCOVERY HARBOUR
Discovery Harbor is a covenant controlled community of over 800 lots. Our Homeowner’s Association is active, involved and committed to keeping the area a beautiful place to live. The Community Center is a busy hub of activities, including hula, exercise, yoga, game night, quilting and fund raising rummage sales. Our many social events include dinners for Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving an d Christmas, as well as celebrations for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Fourth of July.
Discovery Harbour was originally built around an 18-hole Robert Trent Jones Sr. golf course, which is currently privately owned and not open to the public. However, the homes adjacent to the golf course enjoy expansive ocean and/or mountain views over the fairways and greens.
Our location on the Big Island is ideal, mid-point between the two major metropolitan areas of Kona and Hilo – or in sightseeing terms, halfway between the most beautiful beaches in the world in Kohala, and the rain forest and waterfalls on the eastern side of the island. This location gives Discovery Harbour the seclusion and privacy of the countryside with the convenience of urban amenities not so far away. And, we are located just 30 miles from Volcanoes National Park where you can see a volcano that’s been active for almost 30 years.

DISCOVERY HARBOUR FIRE DEPARTMENT
The Big Island is somewhat unique within the State of Hawaii in that it is the only county that incorporates a Volunteer Division into its fire department structure. Volunteer firefighters account for approximately 35% of the firefighting personnel on the Island, spread across twenty-four Hawaii County Volunteer Fire Companies. Volunteer duties can be physically demanding and somewhat hazardous, but periodic training prepares us to recognize, mitigate, and/or avoid unnecessary risks. Compensation for our time and efforts is simply deriving the personal satisfaction of doing something positive for our community, and receiving the appreciation, support, recognition, and respect from those we serve.
