*How much of my Expedition Membership is tax deductible?
According to the IRS, you can deduct any amount over the benefit received. Volunteering to help us in our conservation programs does not qualify as a "benefit". The cottage and Jeep are your only benefit and they rent out as a package for $239 per night. The balance of the membership is the tax deductible amount of the donation.
*We are not and do not claim to be tax professionals. So, please consult your tax advisor concerning the deductibility of your donation and read IRS Publication 526 for more information.
How many people are covered by my membership?
Your Expedition Membership covers up to four people in your party. It's a great exclusive getaway for a couple, friends or family.
Can each person in my party pay seperately?
Yes. Each person in your party can pay into the Expedition Membershp fee and receive the equal percentage of benefits and deductibility.
Can we bring the kids?
Absolutely. As long as there are no more than 4 in your party. Our program is easily geared toward the family.
What's included in the Maui Expedition Membership?
To start, we pick you up at the Kahului airport on Maui in your 4-door Jeep. We bring you and your party up to your cottage in Haiku and get you settled in. Your day of arrival is yours to do whatever you want. Since we want each expedition day to be the best possible, our itinerary will develop according to the weather forecast. From there, each day is a new expedition. The staff of American Reef Coalition will be your guides. We provide day-packs, snorkel gear, scuba gear, all lunches and (non-alcoholic) beverages on expedition days. We also take care of all travel by land and water, even to other islands. At the end of your expedition week, we transport your group back to the Kahului airport.
Are there any days where we can do anything we want?
Yep. It's your vacation, you decide what you want to do. We can condense all expeditions into 4 days or you can opt out of any or all expeditions. If you like one expedition better than another, we can double up on the days spent on that particular mission. Entirely up to you.
Is there an opportunity for scuba diving?
Yes. A lot of what we do in the ocean requires either scuba diving or snorkeling. We have a scuba instructor and divemasters on staff and we will provide all your equipment. Never been scuba diving or snorkeling, but want to try it? We've got you covered. Maui's clear warm water and colorful coral and fish make for the perfect place to spend lots of time underwater.
