Aloha and Welcome!

Here we have provided some background on Brent and Raewyn Weyer, Owners/Operators of Hawaii Aloha Tours - Big Island Activities. Follow the links to view additional, full-size images.
Brent and Raewyn Weyer, are two of the most diversified individuals in the tourism industry in Hawaii, having resided in Kauai and the Big Island since 1994, but not newcomers to the Pacific.
Brent set sail on his CT37 the "ODDS BODKINS" from Seattle Washington in 1978; this was to be a short sabbatical down the coast to Mexico, however it turned into a Pacific adventure that covered more than 30,000 miles of offshore sailing. Brent was forced to leave his vessel in Tahiti for a month to return to Seattle to close the sale on his house, and sell his on going sporting goods store "Alpenaire Sports Haus" Having achieved both goals, he was now free as a bird, and again hit the high seas.
Prior to Brent's sailing adventure, as in all his endeavors he set out to learn as much about the places he planned to visit as possible. He began to prepare for many foreign destinations and cultures, obtain Visas, stock food, charts, plan for replenishing funds, scuba certification (1977 Dan's dive Shop in Honolulu, HI), and celestial navigation (prior to GPS). Once satisfied that he was "good to go", the fun and learning was to begin. This attention to detail is one of Brent's main attributes.
After a foggy sail down the West Coast, ports of call were Magdalena Bay ("Mag Bay" where the California Gray Whales migrate to every year), Cabo San Lucas, La Paz, Marquises Islands (longest voyage 3000 miles, took 21 days), Tahiti and the Society Islands.
Spending 6 months in the Society Islands took him to Papeete, Moorea, Huihini, Bora Bora. Sprinting out of Bora Bora to get to a safe harbor before Hurricane season started, he sailed for the Cook Islands, only to be confronted with an approaching Hurricane, and was forced by the harbormaster of Rorotonga to put to sea, as the harbor is unsafe in a storm. This was to be one of the many challenges Brent was to face in his great adventure. He set a course straight for the cold waters of the Southern Ocean in hopes the cold water would fizzle out the storm, it worked! He continued on a Northerly course change to the Bay Of Islands in beautiful New Zealand, once the storm had passed (he sailed 2000 miles to make good 1000 miles). Sitting out the storm season in New Zealand allowed Brent to make many friends and replenish his sailing account with some hard New Zealand farm work, by far Brent's favorite stop, he knew he would be back!
Sailing across the stormy Tasman Sea(and stormy it was), Brent landed at the beautiful city of Sydney Australia. He spent 6 months in Sydney, racing grand prix sailing yachts up and down the Aussie coast. The best part of this was, that is where he met Raewyn, the beautiful Kiwi who stole his heart, and would eventually become his wife (but that's a way's down the road yet). He and Raewyn raced an Olympic class "Etchell" with its owner for the season out of the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club.
Brent reluctantly set sail again; leaving many new found friends behind (including Raewyn) and sailed again across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand. After a 6 month racing season, with some of the world's most notable sailors who are now household names, he was again to say bye for now and hit the high seas.
Clearing Customs in Auckland N.Z., Raewyn appeared at dockside,
and wanted to join Brent as he was sailing solo, and it's history from there. They sailed all over the Pacific to include, French Polynesia, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Micronesia, to Guam, this taking 18 months to complete, often sailing alongside the dolphins and whales.
On their arrival in Guam (1984) Raewyn and Brent were married in a quiet civil ceremony. With virtually no money to continue sailing, they set a goal to work hard for 1 year and start their own Diving business. In less than 1 year Raewyn and Brent were Certified as PADI open water Scuba Instructors,
and Brent as a 100 ton Ships Captain. Raewyn also a Registered Nurse worked part time as a nurse midwife teaching Lamaze classes to expectant mothers, and they formed Guam Divers. Brent took out boat divers in their new dive boat, and Raewyn taught intro courses day in, day out.
After 3 years in the dive business they sold Guam Divers and again were on the move, this time back to Australia where they bought a rainforest retreat and taught diving and sailed some of the worlds most famous yachts in many big regattas.
Getting used to the speed of the big fast boats, they traded in the "Odds Bodkins" and bought a roomy 40 foot offshore racing catamaran. They fitted it out for charter work and sailed through New Guinea to the small Micronesian Island of Ponape, where they spent the next year chartering their Catamaran, the "Fantasy".
Ponape would prove not to be as lucrative as Guam Divers but a great experience nonetheless. They were forced to again sail to Guam, to sit out the typhoon season.
In 1990, Raewyn secured a job as a RN/Midwife on the small Island of Saipan,
Brent went to the mainland to expand on his passion of flying he had learnt while in Australia, but this time he would learn to fly Helicopters, this would change his life forever.
With Brent's new career (over 10 years now) as a
helicopter pilot, this would be his primary vocation and still is. Raewyn continues to work full time as a nurse and both live happily in Kailua Kona, Hawaii. And yes they still have a boat; the "Black Jack" is a 1998 Parker 25 sportfisher that they fish and dive on the calm blue waters off the Kona coast.
Hawaii Aloha Tours is their newest endeavor and with their combined experience, and obvious love of the sea, to our knowledge, no other Activity Center in Hawaii has a couple that are scuba instructor certified, boat captain, helicopter pilot, certified tour guide and nurse
(Raewyn is also a certified DMT-Diving Medical Technician). They know the waters, the captains, the pilots, the dive instructors, and know the "right" ones to book you with. (Did we mention Brent just passed the Hawaii Real Estate exam?......what's next?).
Brent and Raewyn have pledged to use their vast experience in the tourist industry for the advantage of the customer by booking only the best of the best, not the ones that pay the "highest commissions" (there are companies out there that are less reputable than others, and we know them!) Brent & Raewyn's qualifications speak for themselves.
Brent and Raewyn hope to personally meet all their clients and provide a more at home atmosphere while they provide their clients with an action packed vacation, or that quiet get away that only the Big Island of Hawaii can provide.
Mahalo. Raewyn & Brent Weyer
