Sail away from the crowds aboard your own private yacht. Choose to experience performance sailing in the Pailolo Channel or leeward sailing in the 'Au'Au Channel. Snorkel with an in-water guide at a local reef system or marine preserve where you can swim with abundant marine life such as the Hawaii state fish, the Humuhumunukunukuapua'a, and the Hawaii Green Sea Turtle, the Honu. After exploring, relax on deck, soak in the sunshine, and enjoy a catered lunch. During Humpback Whale season, spend time whale watching and listening to them sing through our onboard hydrophone. Take advantage of Maui's tradewinds and keep a sharp lookout for Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins. Destinations depend on the weather and sea conditions.

So much fun! This was a great way to supplement a vacation on Maui. We went for a half day excursion with Kainani Sails and it was one of the best things we chose to do on Maui. Everything you could want: sailing, snorkeling, whale-watching, and getting out into the ocean. We saw turtles, heard the whales from our snorkeling location, and made some unforgettable memories. The crew is awesome, knowledgeable, and accommodating. They were perceptive of the things we wanted and we had a blast with them. We highly recommend booking this sailboat!
