Ka'eo started with Trilogy in October of 2010 as a deckhand. He was quick to learn the ropes and earn the respect and trust of his fellow crew. Ka'eo is born and raised on Maui and was brought up as a Paniolo in Makawao! Ka'eo has a wealth of cultural knowledge unique to both his upbringing and his bloodline. His mates call him the "Kanakapedia" because he usually knows the Hawaiian name for whatever it is you are describing and the history to go with it. Ka'eo works with passion, integrity, and Aloha. He exemplifies our core value of Ho'okipa (hospitality) and Ike Loa (pursuit of knowledge/learning) and goes out of his way to make each guest feel special. When not on a boat Ka'eo is the Youth Pastor Kahului Nazarine where he gets to mentor young kids in their faith journey. Ka'eo is also a new father!

Mahalo Ka'eo for your dedication and consistency. We appreciate you!
