The tradition started in 1928, when Alexander Boniface Akina established a transportation company on Maui with banana wagons, buses and taxis. Mr. Akina also provided transportation service for the U.S. Government. These ventures established Maui’s oldest and most experienced transportation company, Akina’s Transportation Service.
Since 1988, Akina Aloha Tours has been owned and operated by Douglas and Sandra Akina. The Akina Family has operated the oldest and continuous passenger transportation service on the Island of Maui, establishing a history of service to its customers for over 81 years.
