Honolulu, HI, United States

Aloha, Welcome to Hawaii. As a nature and culture guide I've been leading tours on O'ahu, Maui and Hawai'i for several years. 


Originally from Texas I've lived in the Northeast, the West Coast of the United States, and Hawaii. I'm an avid explorer and after obtaining a Design/Photography/Cultural Anthropology degree I traveled the globe connecting with people and cultures through teaching, photography and volunteerism.
Having visited six of the eight Hawaiian islands over the past 20 years I settled on O'ahu. 
In 2004 I produced a docmentary on one of our islands. The beauty and history of the Hawaiian islands inspire me and I love sharing with my guests.
O'ahu has incredible scenic locations ranging from dramatic vistas, isolated beaches, lush valleys and mountains. It's no wonder that over 200 films and TV shows were filmed on this island.
I love wildlife - birds, monk seals and especially turtles so I volunteer with Malama Na Honu, a non-profit organization whose mission is to protect the Hawaiian green sea turtles through education, public awareness and conservation in the Spirit of Aloha. On tour I love to show people our threatened sea turtle basking on the beach.
What I love most about leading tours is sharing my passion for Hawaii's history, culture and geology while connecting with people from all over the world. 

Mahalo Nui Loa
Warmest Aloha,
Marie

A Recent Review of this guide

We had 2 goals - learn a Canon EOS, and see sights in Oahu. Marie excelled at both, and queried us about specific wishes to tailor the 8 hrs. We learned history, and saw gorgeous sights, especially a drive into Kaneohe through verdant mountains to practice techniques at the Byodo-In Temple. I had the chance to capture images of a young man ocean cliff jumping. During each stop and between, Marie suggested methods to tell a story with photos, and I learned when to use what - eye opening for an amateur!
