Malama 'Aina: " to Care for the Land "

Our Commitment to Sustainability

Mauka Makai Adventures promotes the sustainability of our island environment and community.  Our certified guides are committed to protecting and preserving the natural and cultural resources of Hawai‘i.  Our goal is to immerse and educate each and every guest in the Hawaiian culture, share with them the history of the islands, and the beauty of our natural environment.  We teach respect for our environment, we observe and learn from our surroundings, and we do our best to leave no trace behind so that future generations may enjoy the same natural beauty.

Mauka Makai Adventures is certified as a Sustainable Tour Operator by the Hawai‘i Ecotourism Association.  We support other Hawai‘i Island small businesses by providing locally produced items on our tours.  We reduce, reuse and recycle whenever possible.  And we take pride in our community by supporting local organizations and participate in conservation events around the island, giving back to both our island ‘ohana and the ‘aina.
