Sail The Ocean Blue

Essential MauiMaui

Maui is one of the world’s premier sailing destinations, and also one of the most beautiful. Whatever your SAILING preference or skill level, you’ll find something suitable here. Single-hull, double-hulled and tri-hulled YACHTS AND CATAMARANS of all sizes offer great sailing adventures for the whole family.

SAILBOATS leave daily from MĀ‘ALAEA HARBOR in South Maui, LAHAINA HARBOR in West Maui and from the beach at KĀ‘ANAPALI carrying anywhere from six to 100-plus passengers. It’s important to note that although winds are usually light in the morning, by mid-afternoon the trades pick up, giving sailors a faster trip back to port. By evening, it’s gentle again — calm enough to enjoy cocktails as you watch the sunset.

Some sailboats and companies even offer snorkeling, as well as food and other refreshments, so you won’t have to worry about packing lunch or refreshments.

If you’re lucky, you might spot a pod of DOLPHINS, HAWAIIAN MONK SEALS or HONU (sea turtles) swimming by.

Whether you skim over the water at more than 15 knots, or take the helm on a vessel that competed in the 1987 World Cup, sailing on Maui is always an adventure. Listed below are providers to call.
