What you'll do

After stopping at Maui’s 1st Vegetarian Health food store we’ll go to a small little gem of a beach where you might take a quick dip, walk the beautiful shoreline or see huge turtles sunbathing. Usually 2-4 turtles are there at any given time. Next, we’ll connect with our inner OM and walk a labyrinth in a forest location where we will set intentions we want to be realized. They also have a great gift store with reasonable prices. The finally leg of our adventure will be to learn a little Hawaiian history & culture & explore Kepaniwai Park Heritage Gardens. The gardens memorialize the multicultural history of Maui, with buildings and gardens representing Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Korean, Filipino, Puerto Rican and Afrikan American cultures. Taking the high road from the gardens we will travel up to view Kuka’emoku a 1200 ft crater peak better known as Iao Needle and learn about the fierce battle in 1790 between the Big Islands chief Kamehameha & chief Kalanikupule’s warriors on Maui where the IAO river ran red with blood. If you’re up for an off the beaten track adventure on Maui that encompasses Vegetarian food, the Ocean & Turtles, Spirituality, and Hawaiian History & Culture then book with me. I would love to host you. Sometimes because of cloud cover at IAO valley I might start the trip with Kepaniwai Park & IAO Needle and end with the Labyrinth.

Adesina

I've been a Vegetarian for 40 years, a Vegetarian Chef for 15 years and a Health Coach for 2 years. I am passionate about eating healthy food and encouraging others to eat better and lead a healthy lifestyle. Finding good Vegetarian/ Vegan food is hard while traveling. I provide a list of healthy Vegetarian/ Vegan places to eat on Maui. I have lived on Maui for 15 years and worked at Haleakala Natl. Park for 5 years where I studied the Hawaiian history, culture, geology, birds and celestial navigation to give 15 minute interpretative talks to Park visitors. I know a host of places that visitors rarely go because most of them stay on the West Side of Maui.

What's included

Food
I will provide a healthy snack and coconut water.
