Michael Snow started with Trilogy back in 2004, though his first job connected to our company was in 2001 with Trilogy Concierge Services (known as Lifestyle Destinations Inc at that time). In between shifts of activity sales and Maui Jim retail, he also ran our beach dive program off Kaanapali Beach, and has certified over 200+ people since his start! Michael has always loved the water and with ample sea time logged he decided to pursue his Captains license. For those of you who have gone through the testing and preparation, you know this is not for the faint of heart. His dedication and focus paid off this year when he received the great title of "Captain" with the passing of his last exam.
Michael Snow is also a true Ambassador of Aloha. He continually exhibits Trilogy's Hawaiian core values of Ho'okipa, Lokahi, and Ike'loa--both to his co-workers and to the guests that come aboard Trilogy. His kind and steady demeanor make him so likable my guests leave his tours feeling like they've just spent the day with an old friend. Besides diving and knowing exactly what Maui Jim sunglasses one should wear, Michael enjoys beach volleyball and photography.
Mahalo Michael for all your hard work, dedication, saltiness, and Aloha!
Jenny has been a standout and is turning into a fine mariner and First Mate. Jenny is great to work with no matter what trip or what the weather is doing. Her strong work ethic and desire to do a good job is appreciated by all. Jenny is always one to lend a hand or pick up a shift when needed - need an extra hand with a prep day?
Recently, she covered for a crew in an emergency and worked a Blue Aina on T1, jumped over to an exclusive Whale Watch on T6, then finished out on a Ka'anapali sunset sail on T3 – all with a smile and 110% effort!
Jenny embodies the core value of Aloha and Lokahi. She truly cares for our guests and her co-workers and will go out of her way to make everyone’s day a little more fun and enjoyable.
We knew Nick was a sure winner when on his first Looksee to Lānaʻi, he spent most of the gnarley ride back to Lahaina in 40kt winds on his hands and knees, holding a Dixie cup full of comet in his mouth, scrubbing stains off of the decks.
Nick has a passion for learning and working hard. Right now we are blessed with his passion being Aimed at boats. He spent the better part of a year on Kona working aboard a single-masted sailboat with no standing rigging nor boom. All for free- he did it just for the Knowledge and the opportunity to gain hands on experience.
Most recently, he dropped everything last minute to join the dry dock crew on T1. His workmanship and efficiency have been impressive, and his attitude and morale is always refreshing.
But nick isn't just a hard worker- he's a compassionate fellow and embodies the core values of Pono and lokahi. Nick will often show up to work an hour early and set up the entire boat before anyone even arrives.
Nick will also go to great lengths to take care of our guests and exceed their expectations. You'll see him braving the elements and standing in harms way just to Get the perfect photo for a guest, or you'll see him sharing his mana'o and knowledge about Hawaiian culture with Others.
Nick's next goal is to get his captains license and he is working towards that diligently and efficiently.
Kudos Nick, mahalo for all that you do!
