Blue’Aina’s objective is to clean up and maintain Maui’s reefs and surrounding lands, educate the community through classes and citizen science, and raise money and lend volunteer support to local non-profits. Registration for water-based clean ups is $30. Please refer to our blog for our upcoming Blue’Aina reef cleanup events!
Join Trilogy’s Captain, Crew and volunteers on a trip dedicated to the conservation of the gorgeous land & sea that makes up our Maui island home. Whether an underwater reef clean-up or a land-based clean-up day, volunteers will not be disappointed on these fun, educational excursions focused on conservation & sustainability!
Held one or two times per month, snorkel or free-dive underwater to gather trash, debris, and even net balls that all choke the natural resources and reefs of the Maui coast and threaten to destroy the beauty of this amazing island.
*NOTE: Volunteers must be able to free-dive underwater in order to clean the reef.
During your trip, we will have representatives from our Non-Profit Recipients, as well as founders and experts in the field, join our volunteers for the event. These guests love to share in the education of their non-profits to tourists and residents alike, so that we can all do our part to help malama the ‘aina (protect the land). Whether teaching about whale habitats or sharing Hawaiian traditions that created this land, volunteers are sure to leave armed with new a knowledge and appreciation for the island of Maui.
Each Blue’Aina event is sponsored with a $1,000 donation to the selected non-profit recipient, and these sponsors join the volunteers in the reef as well (or on land) to remove contaminants, often building lasting friendships through a mutual respect for a conservation lifestyle.
All Blue’Aina events also have a food sponsor, who generously donate all breakfast or lunch items for our amazing volunteers!
