Part of Alternative-Hawaii's mission is to support Hawaii's local economy by globally promoting island-owned and operated ecotravel related businesses.

As one of Hawaii's premier ecotourism sites, our listings of over 4,000 things to see and do in the Islands are making quality information easily accessible to visitors.

If you are a local ecotravel related business (Accommodation, Restaurant, Activity), we would like to include you as a Sponsor in our valued on-line Directory. Your Descriptive Listing under relevant categories will give you a real presence on the Worldwide Web - the growing Cyber-Marketplace!

As part of Alternative-Hawaii, your Aloha will be made visible along the path less traveled. Your Listing will not be lost in cyberspace! We frequently receive over 130,000 "hits" per day (averaging over 10,000 "unique visitors" per day) and have very high rankings on the major search engines. We have a 90% renewal rate among our approx. 600+ Sponsors. The world is watching. Join us and be found.



OPTION 1: SPONSOR - $160 per year

We create a Multi-linked Sponsor Listing placed under three relevant categories sorted in alphabetical order.

Your descriptive listing includes the following 3 links:

  • A link to your website from the Company Name on your listing.
