Hawaiian O’Brien was started by your’s truly… Dan O’Brien in the summer of 2007. Myself, my wife and our daughter were preparing to move to Maui. And I thought that a blog would be the perfect way to keep my family and friends updated on all of the adventures we were about to have. HawaiianOBrien.com was born.

Since then, this site has slowly evolved into what you see now – the beginnings of a full-fledged visual guide to the beautiful island of Maui. I hope to provide more and more videos on the site for 2 reasons. First, I’ve been working in TV production for over 10 years and I love shooting and editing my own videos. Second, it gives me an excuse to spend huge chunks of time at the beach. And besides all that, I can’t think of a better way to spend a few minutes than watching videos of Maui. Can you?

In the coming months, I hope to add more maui video guides, photos, and information on the island’s best beaches, hidden gems, hikes, snorkeling spots, and more. Like I always say… you can’t take a bad picture on Maui. So keep in touch.
