Mahalo for your desire to support the KIRC's mission to undertake the restoration of Kahoʻolawe and its surrounding waters. There are a limited number of volunteer accesses scheduled each year. Each volunteer access is limited to number of participants and scheduled from Tuesday through Friday only. Access permit fees for 2015 is $200/person. KIRC provides transportation to Kahoʻolawe from Maui. Transportation is via the KIRC's landing craft, the ʻŌhua, which is housed in Kihei. Lodging and meals while on Kahoʻolawe are provided. Please read the volunteer access forms above for additional information.

Due to the uncertainty of continued funding through the State of Hawaiʻi, we have begun a waitlist for volunteers interested in accessing Kahoʻolawe. To be added to the waitlist, please email the following information to volunteer@kirc.hawaii.gov: Full name, contact number, email address, # of people in your party and areas of expertise/interest. Or you may use the Google Form below to submit your request.
