About Josh

“Personable and easy-going” is how Josh is frequently described by his guests. We think so, too. Which is why we quickly snatched up this former marine naturalist when he applied to be a Hike Maui guide.

Josh had never been to Maui when he moved here several years ago. But, “my brother lives on O‘ahu, and my grandmother told me many stories about the Islands. I grew up dreaming about living here. And I knew after just a few months this is where I want to raise my own family.”

Guests on Josh’s hikes will hear him share what he’s learned about the Maui lifestyle and values: “Don’t sweat the small stuff, and family is priority, just like I was raised.” And, of course, he encourages everyone to connect with nature, even if it’s just for a few hours. “It’s magical when that happens,” he says.

Guest quote: Of all the things we did on Maui, our rainforest hike with Josh was the best part of our entire trip. He did a great job tailoring the hike to our collective abilities and desire for adventure. We could go on that hike a hundred times with Josh and never be bored!
