Mission: Educating visitors, and our island community, about Hawaii’s marine life, ecosystem, and endangered species while delivering a unique and memorable ocean excursion, so that we can continue to support and promote marine research.
Past: Contributions Towards Research and Education
From 1989 to Current
Present: Giving Back
Hawaii Ocean Project, a division of Lahaina Cruise Company, is working to educate visitors, and residents, on Hawaii’s marine life, ecosystem and endangered species, while delivering a visually unique and memorable ocean excursion. Proudly supporting legitimate research efforts and the general well-being of the Humpback Whale (Na Kohola). We are proud to offer educational whale watches, with trained naturalists on-board, that share their love and knowledge of the marine environment. In a continuing effort to support marine research, we donate 100% of gift shop proceeds to Research Direct. Since 2011, over $90,000 has been raised to support marine research, and with your support, we are fully committed to continuing to do so in the future. Additionally, we are proud to strengthen our roots, within our Maui community, by donating fun and educational excursions to charitable organizations within our community; especially, for our keiki’s schools and fundraisers.
Future: Land and Sea
Hawaii Ocean Project promises to continue to find new ways to make a difference, launch awareness, and organize grassroots efforts in order to steward our natural environment for our current, and future generations on this land (‘aina). And in the sea, utilize Lahaina Cruise Company, and their vessels and excursions, as a major platform to deliver Hawaii Ocean Project’s mission.
