I believe in the concept of learning from local people who have native knowledge and ever-growing love for Oahu.
My experience in the hospitality industry began when I was fifteen years old with the restaurant business. I moved to St. Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands when I was twenty-one and after working in restaurants for a few years my passion for the water inspired me to start working on daysail boats as first mate, snorkel guide, local encyclopedia and story teller.
Soon, I moved on to luxury charter yachts, taking families or groups around the British Virgin Islands for nine-day vacations. As the first mate, it was my job to take the guests snorkeling, swimming, shopping, hiking, whatever they desired. A week living and playing together consolidated friendships and we often had repeat charters.
Once married, we decided to sail around the world and bought a forty-one foot boat for that adventure. We spent about 6 years, slowly enjoying each port and sometimes stopping to work awhile. That was how we fell in love with Hawaii.
After starting a family and having the children reach school age, we choose to come back and call this home. That was seven years ago and as my children have gotten older we have enjoyed more and more of the hidden gems this island has to offer. When our family and friends come for a visit it is a joy to create many fun filled days of sightseeing and beach hunting.
Let me treat you like family. Tour the island like a local and I assure you, it will make all the difference.
