Now he’s sharing his knowledge with guests of Makena Beach and Golf Resort, where he’s leading ocean tours and lessons in kayaking, canoeing, snorkeling and paddle-boarding.

An outspoken advocate for the preservation of Hawaii’s natural resources, Kapahulehua has picked an ideal spot for interacting with visitors, as the resort is located in an area widely known for its striking natural and cultural landmarks.

“Together we will talk-story and share the bounty of land, air and sea,” said Kapahulehua. “Every day will bring new discoveries for both young and old. We have much we can learn from one another.”
