My name is Pohai, I am the Cultural Adviser and Administrator for the Like Try Charters!
I was born and raised in Hana, Maui! I was apart of an inter-generational program that took young children and had them raised by the kupuna (elders) of Hana. From them I learned Mo’olelo (legends) of the Hawaiian Islands, La’au Lapa Au (Traditional Plant Medicine Healing), Lei Making, Hawaiian Music, and perpetuating the Hawaiian Culture!
I come from a family of lawai’a (fisherman), participated in competitive canoe racing, and am currently a crew member of Traditional Hawaiian Boat Mo’okiha O Pi’ilani.
My love for the sea has taught me how to respect and cherish the unique ecosystem here in Hawaii. My goal on the “Like Try” crew is to preserve our resources by educating and sharing with our passengers the TRUE spirit of ALOHA 🌺
