S. With a passion for exploring the Hawaiian Islands since my father moved to Lanai and the Big Island twenty-nine years ago. For 18 years, Hawaii was my home away from California, leaving no stone unturned, while always discovering something new and magical about this paradise. The Aloha spirit of the islands were instilled in me and knew it was a matter of time before committing to full time living on my favorite island of all, Maui! More then seven years ago. I absolutely love exploring the incredible nature here, am an avid ocean swimmer and hiker my entire life, with an education on Hawaiian history, flora, fauna and Volcanology.
The natural wonders and lifestyle here inspired me to become a private guide, having gained extensive experience in adventure tours, sightseeing tours and hiking tours.
A Recent Review of this guide
Our family enjoyed an epic hike to the Four Falls. My wife and I and four kids completed the rigorous trail through the bamboo forest to each of four waterfalls with the help of our outstanding guide, Demian. He is knowledgable, personable, safety conscious, and a ton of fun. We swam in crystal clear pools, climbed waterfalls, swung from a rope swing, and jumped off cliffs into the water. I would highly recommend Demian as a guide and firmly intend to use him again on our next trip to Maui.
