Our mission at Hawaiian Paddle Sports involves more than just our business. Community, culture, and protecting what we love in this world is a big part of who we are. Each month, our Malama Maui program highlights a local charity, community group or non profit organization to help raise awareness for their cause. In January 2018, we were proud to support Hawaiian Islands Land Trust. Check out the highlights from last year in our video.
The mission of Hawaiian Islands Land Trust is simple: To protect the lands that sustain us for current and future generations.
Though often taken for granted, land – be it open space, coastal access, beaches, or conservation areas – is critical to sustaining our Maui community. As our population grows, industries expand, and developments increase, it is important to preserve native habitats and open space. Throughout Hawaii, the Hawaiian Islands Land Trust is responsible for managing thousands of acres. Their work is important to sustaining our islands and protecting these areas for the future.
Buy Back the Beach Fundraiser
On the Saturday following our service project at the Waihe‘e Coastal Dunes and Wetlands Refuge, Hawaiian Paddle Sports employees wet to the Buy Back the Beach fundraiser event at the Old Lahaina Luau. The event raised over $150,000 for the Hawaiian Island Land Trust to continue its valuable work. Many thanks are due to all the sponsors and volunteers who participated in this highly successful event. Do you recognize us all dressed up?
All photos and videos on this website were taken while viewing animals from a responsible distance. Images depicting dolphins or whales in close proximity to people were taken when the animals approached the vessel, and no attempt was made to approach or otherwise disrupt these animals. All underwater photos and videos of dolphins and whales were taken with a remote device while following guidelines for responsible viewing.
