A Passion For Exploring...
Aloha! This is Demian Deas, the owner. I'm originally from Charleston, SC, raised in Manhattan, NY and mostly California. I've lived in Maui for 11 years, but have been exploring the Hawaiian Islands for 27 years, due to my father having lived in Lanai and the Big Island since 1989. I grew up doing ocean sports in Cali and Hawaii, was an avid lap swimmer for 14 years, have extensive experience hiking in Hawaii's beautiful forests and jungles! And have been exploring internationally since the mid 90's.
Currently, I am triple Certified from Maui Mauka - Nature Based Tourism, First Aid/CPR/AED Certified from the American Heart Association; with a Motor Carrier Permit from the Public Utilities Commission, and a Department of Land and Natural Resources Permit for exploring that much more! So, you're in great hands for an informative and exciting day!
Zak has lived in Maui since 2010, with 6+ years of extensive experience in private tours, and a local style barefoot adventurer! Where hasn't he explored... He is First Aid/CPR Certified from Red Cross, and a professional enthusiast for learning and discovering more of Hawaii. When it comes to favorite spots, in depth knowledge of the islands and its history, he's a walking wikipedia with tough feet!
Terence is originally from South Africa. Having traveled extensively across the USA for over 7 years with his wife, they've been to all states except Alaska! It's a matter of time...
Making Maui home for the last 4 years, adventure is in his blood and water fills his soul. First Aid/CPR/AED Certified with a background in life guarding, ocean safety, and property/resort management. Loves to surf! With experience leading outrigger canoe tours, kayak snorkeling tours, paddle boarding, and off-road ATV tours on Maui.
Keolamau (AKA Keola) was raised on Maui, and stems from a rich cultural heritage of Okinawan, Hawaiian, and Portuguese descent. His lineage is a cultural tour unto itself, and we are all ears. A father of two boys, Keola has an extensive background in culture, education, adventure on Maui, and First Aid/CPR/AED Certified. He may even sing a Hawaiian hymn or song on your tour... If you're lucky!
