    Mission Statement

    InstantHawaii is a site devoted to conveying the love, awe and wonder inspired by the Big Island. Our primary goal is to provide as much information about the Big Island, hikes, trails, drives, plants, and animals as we possibly can.

    There are many sites providing bits and pieces about the Islands of Hawai'i, but up till now there has been no one place for visitors and Kama'aina to access the broad spectrum of information specifically about the Big Island.

    By definition, the Big Island is Big - and thus this site is a work-in-progress. As we hike and enjoy the island we will add our experiences and knowledge to this site.

    Launch Date: May 1, 2004
