Great sailing on a Santa Cruz 50. Many thanks to the Captains and the crew who did a great job of sailing and taking great care of us. The water between Maui and Lanai is a great place to sail. The whales cooperated quite a lot! We have sailed with Scotch Mist for the last 10 years, or more, and... More

This was our first time on the Scotch Mist. We were there for the whales and we were not disappointed. There was a cow and calf having fun that day and theCaptain was able to sail around and in between the other boats so we had a great view. There is no shade, so be prepared! Awesome time on the...

This was our second whale-watching excursion with Scotch Mist Sailing Charters. Our first was a couple of years ago. This is the only whale-watching excursion that we found that actually goes out under sail. The other companies never seem to put up their sails...there are lots of catamarans going out, but always under power with the sails down. Scotch Mist... More

We have been doing theScotch Mist Campagne sunset sail every March for the last ten years. It is one of the first things we schedule when we arrive on the island. The saling is magnificent and Kirsten and Alma are a great crew. They make the sail very pleasurable and personable. The Scotch Mist is about the amazing sail. Seeing... More

This was our second time with Scotch Mist and it again was perfect! Kristen and Alma Rose were a great crew, we saw 2 whale breaches, great conversation, champagne, chocolates, real sailing and beautiful sunset! Oh, the sail boat is perfect too!

Skip all the other charters and go straight to Scotch Mist! My wife and I wanted to get a closer look at all the humpback whales we could see from the beach, but were reluctant to book a whale watching tour because it seemed like such a crowded, "touristy" experience. Then we saw the small Scotch Mist sailboat docked up... More

We've been on the scotch missed to about 10 times now over the last five years. We committed to ourselves that we would go every day on this trip, and fortunately the weather did not cooperate and we were only able to go twice. But what great trips the two were! We ended our Maui adventure today with a morning... More

We never miss an opportunity to take a sail on the Scotch Mist II The crews are expert sailors and always make our trip comfortable and memorable! Whale watching from this boat is always exceptional. We always recommend this experience to friends, family and all others who ask. A small number of fun people, quiet, relaxing and memorable!!!

Our Scotch Mist 2 sailing today was fantastic. The crew was professional and attentive and the cruise was highlighted by whale sightings so close I could see the whales swimming beside us. We sailed slowly in the area and the whales were curious and approached us. The crew were engaging experts, and offered beverages to enhance our sailing:) Thanks Glen,... More
