Aloha kakou! Living on a Volcano might be scary to some but I call it paradise. Volunteering at the Hawai'i Nature Center, working at Kualoa Ranch and being a guide for well over 10 years has brought me plenty knowledge of the land and the history of Hawai'i nei. Chris and I love showing people our home while taking photos and teaching about the history. Taking people around the islands barefoot or in my slippahs for a living is something I never thought could be possible but here we go!

Where you'll be

A huge abundance of rain has led to flora and fauna that is positively thriving. For roughly 70 million years, Hawaii existed in isolation from the rest of the world by a great swath of the Pacific—wherein plants and animals had to hitch rides on birds, gusts, or waves—and you’ll start to understand just how formidable and unique the creatures in our tropical jungle are. The ocean is warm, crystal clear and cannot wait to jump in with you!

Chris was our guide. He changed the tour around our interests. He was very personable and since he grew up here, knew the island very well. The visit to Stacy’s house at the volcano site and feeding the wild horses were our favorite activities. Swimming with the turtles was a high light too. Who am I kidding, it was all amazing!! It made for a wonderful 36th wedding anniversary. Thank you!!!

Chris C. (Kai’s co host) was an AMAZING tour guide! Not only did he go above and beyond personalizing our epic tour, but he was able to help with a TON of great recommendations for us for our remaining days on the island. Chris was SUPER knowledgeable about Hawai’i and his enthusiasm for his culture made the experience so much more memorable. I highly recommend drone footage, absolute masterpiece! Couldn’t recommend this experience more, by far the best I’ve had anywhere!

This was awesome, Chris was our guide and he was super fun. He also taught us some Pigeon which wound up being very useful later on in my trip.

Awesome experience!! Chris picked us from the Hilo airport and brought the best local Donuts that kids enjoyed..he had water and snacks! Awesome welcome then he explained the plan! First we went to Fissure 8...out of this world experience for the entire family and access is from private property..just awesome! Spent good time then we went on to visit other places then came Waipio valley, Chris drove to the beach on the narrow and steep road ...fed horses (They love Chris..he has special bond)..again the best experience on untouched valley, horses, river and the sea!! We only had a day but we enjoyed to the fullest!! +Lunch --> Fish & Chips (Mahi Mahi) are best i ever ate!! Note: If you plan to visit Big island you can plan 1-3 days ..and plan with Kai..he will do all the planning ..guaranteed you will have the best of your time!! Mahalo Chris & Kai!!

This experience was absolutely incredible. Chris was an amazing tour guide with tons of local anecdotes. We did sooo many things that feel like they would be totally inaccessible unless you are with someone that has the knowledge he has.
