Captain Nate (Jack Nicholson smile) and his crew set us up with a great sail with whales sited with a beautiful sunset in the background. One of numerous sails with the Scotch Mist over the last 20 years. Too bad we don't live near Maui, not to be missed if you visit. Judi, Peggy and Scott Johnson

What a treat! A perfect cruise off the coast of Maui: whales galore, fantastic snorkeling, just enough wind, terrific crew. Our thanks to Captain Turk, Amanda and Becca for a wonderful experience. Top notch. Thumbs up. Highly recommended.

Went for a 2hr morning cruise to see whales, the 50ft boat is well kept and very ship-shape, good safety briefing, lots of room for the 20 or so people on board. Very pleasant day with not quite enough wind for good sailing but The whales obliged by being all around us. We found some wind near the end of... More

This was an impulsive trip we hadn't planned, we just saw it advertised at Lahaina harbour, it was a lovely evening so decided to give it a go. Scotch Mist II is a sailing yacht, approx 40 foot, skippered by what seemed to be the owner and with a very efficient and friendly all female crew. As it was evening... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this sunset sail. The boat doesn't hold a ton of people, I think we had 16. The captain and crew were great! We saw numerous whales while sipping champagne or wine. Very enjoyable! We tried to take a 2nd cruise but they were booked. Bummer! At our request, we asked for a restaurant suggestion, which they provided and... More

A great sail where the champagne flowed! You do need a certain level of fitness/balance as this is real sailing and the yacht can get quite a lean on it. One member of our group had not sailed before and was a bit scared at times and clinging on for dear life!!! Me and my boyfriend have sailed before and... More

We went on several sails in west Maui and we would rate Scotch Mist with Gene and his great crew as the best. We had a small number on his sailboat and his crew made it a welcoming, informative and friendly sail. With the smaller boat being a sailboat the whales came closer than they did with the noisier, larger... More

Sunset sail on the Scotch Mist was truly the best part of our "girls trip." Even the nervous-about-boating one was pleasantly surprised and loved it. Can't wait to sail with this wonderful, hospitable crew again. Walking through the energy of Lahina was a great way to end the evening.

This is the best in Maui. Our family has been to Maui 12 times & this is the best experience ever. The crew is great, very knowledgable & accommodating. We saw whales & dolphins!!!

My wife and I booked the Scotch Mist right after our talk with Kirsten at the dockside booth. The selling point is it is real sailing. They motor out of the harbor and from then on the wind is our power. We took the sunset cruise which was a lot of fun. My first real sailing adventure was a blast.... More
