• A burnt out 40-something traveler from the Netherlands, no one can remember exactly how long ago Dries arrived on the island — including Dries. Manager of the Vaipiti owned beach bar, the Blue Reef, Dries is a close friend and ally of Maui and respectful of the family's standing on Manutaki. A laid-back free spirit, Dries has a side-line business selling the island's local hallucinogenic, avatavi, to naive tourists.
