Two of us ended our vacation with a sunset sail on the Scotch Mist. The weather was beautiful, the ocean glistening with its blue hue and the company awesome! We were served choices of champagne, 3 varietals of wine or beer and chocolate macadamia nuts. Hosted by the boats owner and captain and gracious crew, we couldn't have asked for... More

We spent a week in Maui with our two sons and families, including grandkids from age 2 through 7. We had a fabulous sail on this sailboat--it is so well sailed, with nice gentle heeling, etc, but still very safe for the kids. all but the 2 year old ended up on the forward deck. It has stanchions with good... More

Four of us (two couples) jointed this relaxing cruise two nights ago and had a great time. Weather was perfect for a sail and perfect for about anything! Crew was very sociable...a few drinks were served with a little chocolate, great relaxing music The price was a great value for a few hours at sea out of Lahaina. Do it,... More

Took the evening cruise with them, and highly recommend it. Although a bit late leaving the dock despite asking us to check in early (we'll put it down to being on Hawaiian time), the rest of the cruise more than made up for it. Great customer service, they'll make sure you always have a drink to hand, and will let... More

We had an excellent experience with SMSC starting with Kerstin, who booked our Michigan based family of 5 for the evening Champagne Cruise. She was helpful, accomodating and told us everything we needed to know about the cruise options. The boat owner, Capt Gene, is a fantastic guy who set the tone for a relaxed, laid back two hour cruise... More

There are a bazillion boating/sailing options on Maui - the Scotch Mist is one of the very best, in my opinion. The crew is small, very nice, and incredibly interesting...and the sailboat itself is a perfect size. If I remember correctly, their maximum passenger capacity is 16/17 people - and we've sailed at times with about 12 without feeling crowded.... More

What an amazing experience! We did a sunset sail in July 2014 and it was really one of the highlights of our trip. The captain and his crew were friendly, knowledgeable and made sure everyone was having a great time. It was a fun, casual evening watching an amazing sunset in the waters off Lahania. We really couldn't have asked... More

One of the reservationists told us to get together at least 6 people, and she would make it so that we could have the boat to ourselves, since we were celebrating a special occasion. She said in the event we could only get 4 people together, I could just buy a couple extra tickets to make up the difference, as... More

We had a great time sailing with Gene and the crew last night. We took the champagne sunset dinner cruise for 2 hours and it was very beautiful and relaxing. We got very lucky that only our family of 6 was signed up for the cruise so it was effectively our own private charter. I highly recommend this trip. Compared... More

We booked on Thursday for a Sunday morning snorkel sail. We checked our e-mail late Saturday evening to it was cancelled. Had to scramble to find an alternative. At that point we were not very happy. We did get lucky and our alternative turned out great.
