Big Island tour companies claim to take a hit from ongoing Mauna Kea demonstrations
Businesses on the Big Island are taking a hit because of the ongoing demonstrations at Mauna Kea.
West Hawaii Today reports tour companies near the mountain are selling their equipment and restructuring.
Eight companies licensed to ferry guests to the summit for sunset, stargazing and educational excursions say they have cut employee numbers and reduced trips.
Demonstrations have been blocking off access to the road for nearly two months now.
