Just finished an evening sunset sail on the scotch mist. Absolutely delightful! So different to be out on the water than just in it or looking out at it. Perfect for any age person...could even see the big island. We would recommend this to absolutely anyone!

We first sailed on the Scotch Mist II on its very first charter sail 32 years ago, right after it won the Victoria to Maui race. We loved it! A couple weeks ago we again took the 4-hour snorkel and sail trip, and again, loved it. An important factor for us is that they actually sail! (Most charters are actually... More

I cannot recommend this enough. My wife and I had an awesome sunset sail. Great crew, really took great care of us. We will never forgot this sail trip. We shall be back next year! They should charge more!

We've been sailing with Gene and his crew for over 8 years....every visit to Maui. You cannot find a better family oriented activity on Maui that will get you closer to Aloha than being out on the water. The Scotch Mist has daily charters all times of the year that range from whale watching to snorkeling, but by far...our favorite... More

We really enjoyed a 2 hour sail with Scotch Mist. We headed first toward Lanai - and learned some interesting sailing facts. The crew was casual, informative - and very friendly. Good value also. Enjoy!

We had perfect weather for our sunset sail on the Scotch Mist, with lovely skies and an unclouded view of the valley on Maui. Captain Gene and his crew treated the small group of guests like family and he and his crew handled the boat expertly. Champagne, beer and chocolates were offered and engaging conversation with Captain Gene, Gene, Jr.,... More

My family gathered in Maui to fulfill my in-laws' final wish: that their ashes be scattered on the island home they loved. Crew of Scotch Mist was wonderful and respectful. After we scent off the palm-wrapped urns and scattered leis and petals, captain circled the spot three times. He gave us a card with the latitude/longitude (for those who like... More

We chose this snorkeling trip because we wanted to go on a true sailing boat to the reef. Booking on Gene's sailing boat was the best decision. The snorkeling, whilst great, became second to the time spent sailing. The crew were fantastic. They had heaps of information and stories and it was a pleasure to spend time with them. Nothing...

My wife and I did the snorkel/sail last year and it was great. We had friends join us this year and it was just as good, only better. This is the only true sailing cruise. The sails go up and the engine is off for 95% of the time. Capt. Gene and first mate Amorosa were terrific hosts. We sailed... More

We LOVED the Scotch Mist sunset cruise! My parents have been at least six times and swear there is no better, more intimate cruise on Maui, and they were right! For a family get together on August 16 6 of us went out of Lahaina on this gorgeous sailboat. There were a few other very nice folks on the boat,... More
