ALOHA! E Komo Mai

Welcome to Mauka Makai Adventures!


Your local guides, Josh and Jill Grotkin, were born and raised in Hawaii and have many years of experience working in the tourism industry and public service sector. We pride ourselves on the local experience, leveraging our background to bring you to some of the islands most beautiful locations off the beaten path.
We radiate the aloha spirit and are eager to share with you much about the history, culture and environment of Hawaii Island. Our goal is to provide you with the tour you desire. From the waterfalls of the Waipio valley, to the lava fields of Kilauea, we will go at your pace and if there is a stop you’d like to make along the way, we will do it!
By choosing Mauka Makai Adventures, you are supporting a local, sustainable business that respects the land and culture that our family is apart of!
We are honored to be featured in the Sydney Morning Herald! You can read about one of our tours from a travelers perspective at http://www.traveller.com.au/

Mahalo nui loa, we look forward to sharing our island with you!
