I am trying to find a show that my boss SWEARS they watched sometime between 2000-2007 called Hawaii Outdoors. It was either on the Travel Channel or the Discovery Channel and showed aspects of Hawaii while focusing on nature and outdoor adventures. The show was narrated by a man, but he doesn't remember a host. He watched it in San Diego using both Cox Cable and Time Warner.
ANY help finding this show would be appreciated!

I can only help a little: I did a search of newspapers and found out it aired around 2000-2004 on The Health Network aka FitTV. Keep in mind I only did a rudimentary search and it's possible the series also aired on other channels.

This is great! Could you possibly send me the newspapers or links you found it with?

Unfortunately I can't, I found the newspaper pages on newspapers
(dot) com which is a subscription website (I cannot list the URL on here as far as I know). I believe they offer a free trial which you could use, though a subscription is expensive (but necessary for me at least, since I regularly have to determine the dates of old tapes in my collection).

I can however mention the names of two newspapers I found the information, which are Provo, Utah newspaper The Daily Herald and Muscatine, Iowa newspaper The Muscatine Journal. In both newspapers the series is listed in various TV guide pages, which don't provide any more information than what I listed above. I'm not sure why it isn't listed in a larger amount of newspapers, but I'm guessing since the Health Channel/FitTV wasn't a huge channel, it simply wasn't listed in many TV guides, and secondly many newspapers from the mid-2000s haven't been digitised.

No worries, I was able to access a preview of the Utah newspaper and that is enough for my boss! Thanks so much!
