The mo‘olelo of the intertwinement of two lovers, Pōhuehue and Kauna‘oa, is one of faith. The two grew fond of each other and spent time together on the beach. In a huge argument, Pōhuehue fled by canoe and made his way to Lāna‘i. Despite being separated for several years, Kauna‘oa remained hopeful that her lover would return. After dreaming about her one night, Pōhuehue scattered the flowers of the hau tree into the ocean. The flowers made their way to Kahana Bay. Kauna‘oa called upon her ‘aumakua (family guardian) and followed the path of the flowers to Pōhuehue on the shores of Lāna‘i. The reuniting of the lovers is said to be why strands of kauna‘oa are often interlaced with the pōhuehue vines, both growing together on the beach and in lei-making.

A Proud Product of HILO, HI

Completely isolated from the rest of the world, Waiākea® offers purity in its ultimate form. Located just outside the quiet town of Hilo and surrounded by rich, bio-diverse forest preserves, a deep well source sits at the eastern base of the Mauna Loa volcano, one of the purest environments on Earth. Originating atop the volcano as rain and snowmelt – the water slowly filters through thousands of feet of porous, volcanic rock, re-emerging at the surface as refreshingly crisp, naturally alkaline water. As keiki o ka 'āina, or “children of the land,” it is our responsibility to protect the natural resources of Hawai'i – and as protectors of our pristine source, we promise to responsibly share Waiākea with you, never depleting our precious gift.


Naturally alkaline with pH range of 7.6-8.2 from naturally occurring essential minerals such as calcium, potassium, silica, magnesium, and more.


Certified CarbonNeutral from sip to source. Bottles made from 100% recycled material. Use less than .003% of source's sustainable yield.


1 case = 1 month of clean water to Malawian villages in need & local community support through our Kōkua Initiative.
