Originally from Western Maryland, Peter has been a Maui resident and tour guide since 2002. Growing up in the Appalachian Mountains he was an avid hiker, climber and skier but developed a love for the water after frequent visits to the Atlantic Ocean as a kid.

As a young adult he was drawn to Maui where he learned to surf and scuba dive. Leading tours and becoming a certified scuba instructor was a natural progression from there. Over the years he has guided and led tours for many of the tour companies here.

Peter’s love for the ocean and knowledge of the area make for a memorable, educational experience for the first time visitor or local resident alike!


Raised in the foothills of South Carolina, Griff cultivated an appreciation for the outdoors at a very young age. He honed his water skills sailing, kayaking, fishing and water skiing at a small lake in the NC mountains.

In 2001 he nearly died after contracting malaria on a trip to West Africa. It was that experience that led him to grab his backpack, two surf boards and a ticket to Maui. He immediately felt at home here and hasn’t left!

He loves sharing his knowledge and passion for Hawaiian ecology and culture with every guest on his trips and spent many years working at wilderness education programs for high school kids.
