For the price this 2-hour sail gets 5 stars. The two man crew (Capt Eric and mate Nate) did a great job with the 17 guests on board grabbing us drinks and helping spot whales. The wind picked up quite a bit and their 50 was moving pretty quickly and was heeled over to the point that the side of the boat was maybe 3 feet above the surface of the ocean. A few guests seemed a little uncomfortable with this but hey it’s an “Adventure Sail”. Nate was kind enough to help one passenger from the side of the boat baxk to the stern where she was more comfortable. I was thrilled with the wind and speed - exactly what I was hoping for. Take this chance for a boat trip without the sound of a motor in the beautiful waters off Mauis west side (great views of Lanai, Molokai, and Kaho’olawe).

Our family of 7 had a great trip on the Scotch Mist with Captain Steve and Mate Nate. They made the trip very enjoyable and were great with all the passengers making them feel important and well served. We could not be and ask for a better family trip for ages 8-70yrs old; 3 generations.
Thanks

Captain Steve & first mate Nate did a great job making this a memorable afternoon sail. Fortunately the wind & waves cooperated, along with interesting commentary on guest questions & informative info on the islands. Pleasant background music helped set a relaxing tone to the sail. Definitely up for future booking...

We went on the 2 hour Adventure sail. If you’re a looking to get out in the water for a slow relaxing sail, you will probably enjoy this cruise. We left Lahaina and sailed South at 4-7 knots, so fairly slow. We did not even reach Olowalu, if you know where that is, before we turned around for the return to Lahaina. It leaves in the afternoon and there is no covering, so be prepared to be in the sun and hot the entire time. A lady onboard went underneath, not necessarily intended for passengers, most of the cruise because the heat got to her. Drinks are provided. The crew of two were very pleasant. Just remember, this is a small performance sailboat meant for everyone to be out in the open, not one of the catamaran sailboats that have a cabin to get out of the sun occasionally. This does not appear to be a popular cruise as we had only 14 passengers and the prior day only had 6 passengers, which is a good thing if you want less crowded conditions. The captain said their snorkel cruises are not popular, which I can see as there is little room for standing around or moving about to prepare for, or end, a snorkel.

We bought a trip at 12:00pm, however, upon arrival, did not find a boat. We called the company and we’re told that they do not have a trip at 12:00pm on that day, and have a trip at 2:00pm instead. We were not able to wait for 2 hours due to schedule conflict and had to leave(((

Passenger Anastasis (from San Francisco) is incorrect. She bought tickets through Viator website portal on Tues. Ap. 5th for a trip on Wed. Ap 6th but it was NOT for a 12 noon departure but rather a 2:30 pm Adventure Sail; because on Wed. we do NOT have a 12:00 trip because we run a 4 hr. Morning Snorkel Sail on Mon, Wed and Friday. Her e-ticket, email confirmation and manifest all say the 2:30 pm trip. She made an error and was WRONG 3 times; but did not stop her from writing a negative review. Obviously, no refund is appropriate. Mahalo to all our normal guest passengers who write 5 Star reviews. Don Kidder, General Manager

We had a beyond terrible experience with this operator. My father is an avid sailor who has not sailed in years. Further, because of the pandemic and living on opposite coasts, we haven’t had an opportunity to reunite as a family in two and a half years. Our group of 7 had planned a big family reunion in Maui and gifted a sailing trip to our father for Father’s Day and it’s been something we’ve looked forward to for months.
The group charter we booked was made more than two months before our trip and the day before our excursion, the Scotch Mist charters contacted us and told us that our Adventure Sailing charter was being canceled.

They refused to inform us what the reason for the cancelation is (it was not weather related). We are incredibly disappointed because we planned our entire trip to Maui around this excursion.

To make matters worse, because of the late notice, we didn’t have an opportunity to try and rebook with a different operator. The charter company also did not attempt to make it right by us and inquired if I would be interested in booking a last minute excursion for a snorkel trip - for one…

I implore you to not book with this charter company. Don’t trust your vacation experience with them and give your money to a company that cares about customer experience and upholds their end of the bargain.

My apology to your family group for the late cancellation--unfortunately it was unavoidable and out of our control. The pandemic has greatly reduced the labor pool on Maui especially for boating captains and even more restrictively for sailboat captains. Scotch Mist had hired a second main captain 60 days ago subject to that individual renewing his US Coast Guard captain's license with sailing endorsement. He proceeded everything thru the Honolulu center and it was forwarded over 2 weeks ago to the East Coast Center and we were all patiently for the undermanned government office to issue the renewal. We had a firm commitment from the new captain, negogiated comp and benefits and he had given notice to his current employer, and then 2 days before your trip, he called and said he was not coming to work for Scotch Mist. There are no back-up captains available on Maui are this time, we tried to juggle the schedule of the current main captain who is already working 50 hours per week but could not save or cover the cruise and thus had to cancel. The answering service notified you as soon as our company knew, but they did not know the personnel details or the efforts that our Operations Manager had undertaken to try and cover the cruise. Unfortunately no choice---even worse than someone calling in sick with no back-up. Again our apology. Please look at our very favorable reviews going back several years---I know small consolation and more information than you probably wanted to hear. Don Kidder, General Manager Don Kidder

We booked this trip because they cancelled our morning snorkel. Actually, they left a message on my foreign cell phone which I didn't get so we showed up for the morning snorkel unaware that it was cancelled. I wish they'd emailed us. In any case, when I borrowed a phone and called them the person on the phone just kept explaining they'd called us so it was our problem and not theirs. Customer service, anyone?? Just a quick "OMG, I'm soooooo sorry for the miscommunication! Would you like to do our afternoon sail? I see you are already booked on another sunset sail in a few days and are long-time repeat customers!" Nope. That did not happen. We still booked an afternoon sail because we love sailing and there aren't other monohulls that aren't charters. The trip started off rocky because they delayed boarding us due to dock damage (but didn't extend the length of the trip to make up for this) and because the new deckhand didn't know how to operate the halyard winch and main sheet. After that, we had a lovely sail. I just didn't like the music selection - they try to hit on every genre out there so there's reggae, then country, then classic rock, then RnB, then something else. The captain didn't believe that several of us saw a whale do a full breach in the distance (even though three of us saw it) and told everyone it was probably a boat. Thanks for that, Captain Steve. We really enjoyed the sailing but I'm not sure we'll be back on this boat as we have too many fond memories of Captain Gene and his family. I'm assuming this outfit is under new ownership.

Aloha--This is certainly the longest review that I have seen in 6 yrs. running this company Scotch Mist and other boating companies in Lahaina Harbor for the past 30+ years. This will be a difficult response to the same passenger ("pax") who has written TWO REVIEWS, I but will try to do my best. 1. Morning Snorkel Sail is cancelled only for bad weather, which we cannot control and most times comes at the last moment with little advance notice--eg storm & wind warnings from USCG & NOAA & weather sites. 2 The "my foreign cell" must have been the only Number you entered in the website/portal of Expedia/Viator at purchase. We were lucky to even have that to attempt t/c or text message. We do not get pax email # that is shielded & control by Expedia/Viator. Any of our emails goes thru their "centralized system & #" to Nebraska or China & take 2 to 24 hrs to reach the pax--obviously not good or timely but that is all that we have to work with. 3. Very glad you are a loyal & "long time repeat customer", but that was at least over 6 years ago. The telephone rep in the Reservation Dept. doe NOT have access to that old data or the time to research it. 4. The "dock damage" was to our finger pier at Slip #2 owned, controlled & supposedly maintained by State of Hawaii Harbors Dept.--no maintainance or repair EVER & condemned now we are forced to use the busy Loading Dock & squeeze in with up to 33 VME big boats anchored in the Lahaina Roadsted--nearly impossible task. Harbors Dept will take 3-5 yrs to plan, budget & replace finger pier #2, which means I will have to do it and sue for reimbursement-=--welcome to Hawaii. Loading Dock use does NOT provide fixed or exact arrival & departure times ONLY best possible efforts & availability. 5. GLAD YOU DID HAVE ALOVELY SAIL & thank you for that comment. 6 Obviously you did NOT like the varied music selection. See below response to your second posting & the music of former retired Capt. Gene Sr (nice old guy, and I am a somewhat old guy too). who was not and never was an owner of Scotch Mist or the company, but acted like it for years or decades but simply was a hired employ, who in his" extra ride along" capacity was NOT necessary or continued when I bought the company 6 years ago. 7. New ownership 6 years ago means many changes and upgrades--new main sail, new jib and furler, new rigging & mast improvements, new decking covering & cushioned seating areas, upgraded champagne, wine & craft beers, same chocolate covered macadamie nuts for the last 10+ years (no alternative) but bought daily for freshness==sorry you do not like them but most people do. 8. Glad you said "We really enjoyed the sailing..." We must have done a few things right. 9. On your next Maui trip try the only other monohull sailboat in Lahaina Harbor. It is a small 36 ft'er in the back row, 6 pax boat Gung Ho with a good Capt Marty, who worked for me for 5 years. Hope you like it. Mahalo. Don Kidder, General Manager

The staff was GREAT! Super friendly and they are the ones that made the experience so awesome! You are not rushed or anything. You get to spend all the time you want or need when you snorkel and they keep a very close eye on everyone to make sure you are safe. If you are looking to do something in Maui, you will not go wrong this this company. Food was good too. You feel like you are with friends when you set sail with these guys. You really get the total package! So happy I picked this company out of all the others.

This is probably my 3rd review of the Scotch Mist. We go to Maui every year and this is our favorite boat on Maui. Marty and Alex are captain crew and sometimes Jason and Becca. This trip is different because they ALWAYS use the sails. If they can't, they don't go out. It is so quiet and peaceful out there. The whales come up and you can hear them breathe even. It's so beautiful. The drinks are free, beer, wine, water, juice and soda.
