Safety Protocol

Robert’s Hawaii Clean Care Safety Program.


Roberts Hawaii has created guidelines designed to slowly and safely restart the tour and transportation business.  We have missed our guests but keeping our employees and guests safe, is and will always be, our core value.  The guideline meets and is a combination of federal, state and local regulations.  With shared responsibility, we will together be able to open Hawaii back up for our visitors by doing our part.
