Overview

Welcome aboard Winona, our 50-foot, Polynesian style sailing catamaran! Winona is U.S.C.G. Certified for a maximum of 49 passengers, with plenty of room to comfortably accommodate large groups while still being cozy enough for smaller, intimate gatherings. She has a 3/4 covered cabin area to protect you from the sun and wind, and her large viewing windows allow you to still enjoy the views outside from her covered seating area. Her open deck is spacious and provides plenty of outside seating and areas to sunbathe. Winona's "Stairway to the Sea" allows easy access to and from the ocean for snorkelers and swimmers. She is equipped with two restrooms for your convenience. The dress code on Winona is casual to resort attire. We suggest flat, soft-soled shoes or sandals. Hard sole or high heel shoes are not recommended. Winona does have nonskid decking so bare feet are welcome. We recommend you bring along sunglasses, a hat or visor, waterproof sunscreen and a beach cover up to help protect you from the sun. Towels are provided. Our helpful staff will provide instructions and then equip you with all you need for a spectacular snorkeling experience! Mask, Fins and Snorkel sets or View Boards with built in windows are available to start your adventure. We offer everyone a safety vest and defogger to help keep your experience both safe and fun! If you would like a special keepsake of your group's event, let us know. We can arrange professional video services (above and below the surface) for your group at an additional cost. For individual travelers staying on the Resort's grounds, the hotels provide free shuttle service to and from our departure and arrival locations. Our Captains and Crew look forward to assisting you in creating wonderful memories of your stay in Hawaii! Aloha!

Perfect morning sail and snorkel! Kawika, Luke and Joey were awesome communicators, so much fun and great at keeping track of everyone in the water. Plenty of snorkeling and things to see. Great hospitality and loved being on a sailboat! Mahalo!

I dive with Mauna Lani Sea Adventures every year when I am a +1 for my wife's conference at the Mauna Lani hotel. Unless they don't have room, I won't dive with anyone else around. They are elite and deserve every accolade given to them....More

Did a 2 tank morning dives at Mauna Lani resort. Dive master Gary was excellent. Gary took real care of my wife and she felt so comfortable and had a phenomenal diving experience. Highly recommend and will definitely return again. Thanks again.

Call the phone number and inquire. There are some electric golf carts I've seen at the clubhouse, and they may be able to accommodate you. Their phone returns are very good.
