about us


do you want to experience a one of a kind experience in aloha `āina?

As one of the few active limu hui in the state, the Waimānalo Limu Hui monthly limu planting is a unique way to serve your community, learn about the Hawaiian culture and restore Hawaii’s shoreline ecosystem, suffering from the lack of its most important primary producer, limu.

We excel at what we do

the experience is with us

companionship through community

As if a day at the beach with the family weren’t fulfilling enough, when you add in education and history of the unique community of Waimānalo, it’s a day you won’t forget.

an unforgettable experience

About Waimānalo limu hui

The Waimānalo Limu Hui is a community based group made up primarily of Waimānalo Residents who seek to replenish the once bountiful supply of limu found in Waimānalo Bay. Under the guidance of kupuna and other limu practitioners, we’re taking one of the most aggressive approaches in the state at restoring the limu population back to the east side of O’ahu. By planting limu in the bay, we’ve noticed an increase in the fish population and a greater sense of community with fellow Waimānalo residents coming out to participate in our efforts. We’ve joined up with other community groups and schools within and outside of the Waimānalo Ahupua’a.
