ADAM QUINN, president

Adam Ranier

Quinn hit the road in 1990 after growing up in the Philadelphia area, studying physical education and physical therapy at Temple University and assisting with youth leadership seminars with the Valley Forge Freedom Foundation. 

When the adventure of Hawaiʻi called, Adam discovered a whole new universe as crew aboard Maui charters. He was soon a certified boat captain, a Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician and a PADI-certified SCUBA dive master, logging over 3,000 dives in Hawaiian waters. 

A quintessential “people person,” Quinn’s work in Maui’s service-oriented tourist industry clicked with his thirst for adventure. In 1993, he applied his skills and local contacts as a “Club Concierge” at The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua. In an effort to fulfill guest requests for experiences “off the beaten path,” Adam went on to design and direct the resort’s comprehensive hiking and eco-tour programs. 

In 1998, Quinn recognized a growing niche in Maui’s eco and adventure tourism industry. Refining his skills with intensive mountaineering training, Quinn co-founded LATAtudes & ADAtudes’s Maui Eco-Adventures and spent several years discovering and guiding fellow adventurers to the most remote locations in the Hawaiian Islands and beyond.

For more than a decade now, Adventure Quinn (formerly Legendary Adventures) has been creating lifetime experiences for corporate groups, celebrities, CEOs professional athletes and other discerning guests in Hawaiʻi and worldwide.

An active community member, Adam is the Past Vice President of Maui County Hawaiian Canoe Association, the Past President of the Lahaina Canoe Club, and a former Maui Preparatory Academy Paddling Coach. He has volunteered with whale research organizations for over 15 years. 

Quinn continues to work and play hard and to travel the world sharing new adventures with his wife Leslie. In addition to his love for outrigger paddling, SCUBA, sailing, skiing, mountain climbing and flying, Quinn does claim to enjoy a good book once in awhile.
