The most rewarding trip is one that gives back 

The Hawaiian Islands itinerary that can change your life isn’t found in any guidebooks. Because what makes the Hawaiian Islands truly special is not only our stunning natural beauty or our vibrant culture - it’s the deeply rooted relationship that connects them. 
That relationship between people and place grows stronger every time you malama (give back). When you give back - to the land, the ocean, the wildlife, the forest, the fishpond, the community - you’re part of a virtuous circle that enriches everything and everyone. Including your experience as a visitor. 
And there’s never been a more rewarding time to give back. Because our participating partners on every island are collaborating with local non-profit organizations to create amazing offers for you to malama. Find your Malama Hawaii experience below.

Volunteers leave a positive impact that lasts generations by protecting fragile habitats extending from the mountain to the ocean. 



Sam Ohu Gon III
Hikers are led deep into a special realm - where species found nowhere else still reign - to conserve native ecosystems and the vibrant culture they sustain.


Sustainable Farming

Rick Barboza
By perpetuating endangered plants and recreating the centuries-old methods of his ancestors, a farmer gets volunteers’ hands dirty planting not just native crops, but the seeds of Hawaii’s sustainable future.
