About Mac…

Mac is a United States Marine Corps honorably discharged veteran, a retired state police officer, and the founder of Maui Metal Detecting. Maui Metal Detecting was founded on the inspiration of a retired US Naval Officer on Oahu who has spent the last forty years of his life finding and returning lost wedding rings to their rightful owners. After purchasing his first metal detector, Mac read the instructions and headed to the beach having no idea what he was actually doing. As it turns out Mac was a natural in and out of the water and within only two hours Mac was approached by a woman that had lost both her wedding and engagement rings. Within about twenty minutes Mac had found both rings and after seeing the look of happiness in the woman’s eyes, Mac was hooked. Experience has now shown Mac that his first find was simply pure luck and that it is only through training, vast experience and the utilization of top of the line equipment that the art of metal detecting can be perfected.

Since finding that first ring Mac has received training from the renowned salt water surf metal detector enthusiast Dale Rohif. Mac has also received specialized training in water currents, tides and sand movement from a renowned University of Hawaii Professor of Oceanic Studies. Mac has been a certified scuba diver for over twenty years and unlike most metal detector specialist in Hawaii who will only search in the water to about chest deep, Mac will search in waterfall pools and under the ocean water to a depth of 60 feet.
