Turquoise waters, spiraling dolphins, and Donny and Nate made our sailing trip a highlight of our stay in Maui. Don't look any further for an exhilarating experience for your body and soul.

Had an amazing journey on the Hina today, beautiful ocean and mountain views, and the most knowledgeable and friendly crew, Nate and Donnie. We were able to see dolphins, and one spun right in front of us, saw turtles swimming in the ocean, and saw a bottle nose dolphin zipping thru the water. Highly recommend the trip, enjoying the sand... More

We chose this trip for several reasons: Eco friendly; small group/more intimate (no more than 6, we were lucky and had just 4); sail an outrigger canoe, which sounded like great fun. The trip did not disappoint. Our lead guide Donny was very knowledgeable and friendly, we did some great snorkeling and saw a number of turtle and of course... More

My boys and I were able to get on yesterday at the last minute. The captain has known us for years and we wanted to go again since my one boy was sick last time. Donnie and Nathan were the best. There was another couple with us and they loved the experience also. This is the true way of experiencing... More

Thanks to Don for being so patient with our 7 year old, we had an amazing first snorkel with him and he can't stop talking about the Manta Rays he saw!!

Donnie and Dave were great hosts on an intimate paddle/sail out to see more humpbacks and then some snorkeling with turtles.

We've sailed on the Hina many times over the past few years & it's our must-do every year. Sage was out at sea this year, but Donnie & Nathan took us on great trips (we went twice this year). Great whale watching, terrific guys sailing the canoe & sharing stories.

We went out with Doug and Nathan this morning on their canoe outrigger! Unbelievable service and aloha spirit! These two guys paddled out for us as we enjoyed the wailea / makena sights and set anchored - that's when our adventure began! We didnt paddle this time and kicked back to enjoy our time in th e water. Where do... More

I booked this based on a T.A. Review. We were not disappointed. Just the 2 of us and our paddlers. We saw Sea Turtles. Snorkelled and relaxed. Great way to spend 2 hours in Wailea.

Perfect for adventurers and non-adventurers to do together... I have lived on Maui for several years and this is the Tour that I take EVERY guest that visits me on! We sail, snorkel... have seen countless whales and turtles... and it is quiet. Just the wind and the ocean... No motors or diesel fuel. The tours are small and intimate... More
