A Passion For Exploring...
Aloha! This is Demian Deas, owner of Makana Maui Adventures. I'm originally from Charleston, SC, raised in Manhattan, NY and mostly California. I've been exploring the Hawaiian Islands for 26 years due to my father having lived in Lanai and the Big Island since 1989. I've been an avid ocean swimmer and hiker my entire life on all coasts, but the Aloha spirit of the islands were instilled in me and knew it was a matter of time before committing to full time living on my favorite island of all, Maui! Over nine years ago.
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 exciting day.
