Food was provided by Trilogy Excursions.Read More

Despite the 500 plus volunteers who came out and picked up over 300 bags of trash as part of the Lahaina Town cleanup just the previous week, our Blue’Aina crew still managed to find enough garbage around Lahaina Harbor to fill multiple bags. As part of every Blue’Aina outing, we take time to give back to the 'aina in addition to the ocean by collecting refuse left behind by the thousands of people who pass through. Once all the bags were collected and disposed of, we boarded TRILOGY I and made our way to Cliff House. After an hour of snorkeling, the only ocean trash we found was a plastic cup. ONE PLASTIC CUP!Read More
