HANA CD GUIDE
Aloha, welcome to Maui.
We’re the owners of the Hana CD Guide. We started in 1985 as a small idea, and thanks to word-of-mouth business that has evolved over the years, we have become much larger and successful than we could ever had imagined.
Craig’s idea of a narrated audio tour of the road to Hana came about when we were on the island of ‘Oahu attending a Hawaii Professional Photographers Convention, and we got lost on the windward side of the island. While trying to figure out where we were, Craig remarked that it would be interesting if we had narration on a cassette player telling us about all the things we were seeing.
Craig had been photographing Maui’s scenic Hana Coast for several years, and the next day he began thinking about all the visitors he had overheard while taking those photos. They were wondering many of the same things he was wondering on ‘Oahu: what were they looking at, and what was there to see and do along what’s considered The World’s Most Beautiful Drive.
So an idea became a plan, and over the next several months he produced his first narrated tour. It consisted of all the information he could find about this windward side of Maui, along with all the places his Maui-born wife Charlene knew about, and all the out-of-the-way places they had discovered together.
Originally operating out of a newly-purchased van they parked along the Hana Highway, they moved to a Shell service station, where they have been for the last 31 years.
Mahalo to all of you who have purchased our Hana CD Guide, and those who have helped us over all these years.
