OluKai paired three Hawaiians—an explorer, an artist, and an ocean lover, and three like-minded non-Hawaiians on creative and inspiring adventures in far-flung corners of the map to document the spread of the aloha spirit.
The Aloha Spirit defines the islands - equal parts of joyful greeting, respectful blessing, and humble wish. It's a way of life and a unique sense of warm generosity born of Polynesia but not bound by geography. Aloha is Hawaii's greatest export. Native Hawaiians bring it wherever they venture, and visitors always take Aloha home.

On the Oregon Coast you find your aloha in a steaming cup of coffee and a surf check from a pine tree covered ridge, not a cup of shave ice while peering to the outer reefs. Where the Pacific meets the Northwest is a place of uncompromised natural beauty. It’s all moss covered tree trunks, misty hilltops, and secret coves. This is a place where having a local guide is a gift.
