Really nice experience. Iโ€™m not a water person so I did not snorkel but everyone else in our group did; those that snorkels said it was so so. We did not see any turtles and they said they saw some fish. We all Enjoyed the history/background information shared. Tour guide/owner is very knowledgeable and personable. Helpful pointers: in my haste to put finishing touches on our travel plans I mis read the tour description and thought we would all be participating in rowing the canoe. That is not the case. Just the tour guide rows/sails. We enjoyed our experience nonetheless. Polo beach parking/entrance is past the Fairmont; Apple Maps had us turn into the Fairmont when we plugged in the address. Parking is paved and shady and there are public restrooms here. The tour operator provides a lockbox on the beach for anything you donโ€™t want to take out on the boat. There is also a very small dry box on the boat for phones etc. we brought sunglasses, hats, waters and a GoPro w us onto the boat. You sit on catamaran style nets on your sail; be sure to apply plenty of sunscreen. They do provide all snorkel gear, towels, noodles and life vests if you like. Overall, if you are looking for a sail/snorkel experience this one was very intimate (our group included our family of 4, another family of 2 plus the tour guide and his assistant/daughter) and you get great insight and info from a real local. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Finally able to return to Maui. We were fortunate enough to have booked the sailing canoe in advance of our arrival. Good thing because they were fully booked.

This is an excellent way to experience a bit of old Hawaii. You learn more about the island as you skim along, just barely above the water. This is our favorite activity on Maui, and shouldn't be missed. Since this is a sailing activity, it is also ecologically friendly.

Sage is an amazing guide. We had some apprehension given the size of the canoe, but I can say this was my absolute favorite excursion during our week in Maui. His stories and history of the islands coupled with his mastery of all types of watercraft made us feel super comfortable. We were able to snorkel, see whales up as legally close as possible and swim with turtles. Two fantastic hours! Thank you, Sage!

Simply incredible experience in beautiful Maui. Sage and his coworker Chris were very friendly and showed us a great time. The other couple in the trip with us were very fun as well. We all got lucky and saw several whale jumps right in front of us. We then sailed around a bit, circled a yacht to get a closer look, then sailed back to the starting point. We were all so amazed at the whale sightings that we blew off snorkeling. However, they would have stopped had we said yes. Both Sage and Chris said our whale sightings were a treat and we feel very lucky to have witnessed them. Thanks guys for an awesome experience.

Vene and Chris were great! Vene taught us so much about Hawaiian/Polynesian culture, which was even more special as my husband and daughter are part Hawaiian. We were able to see several whales while relaxing in beautiful Maui - so peaceful. Highly recommend, would definitely do again!

This was the best experience we had in Maui! The whole family loved it! Sage was a wealth of knowledge about Hawaii and its history. Him and his son were great sailors. This was so much better than a large boat, so relaxing and so close to the water. Snorkeling was a blast, you could hear the whales talk underwater and above. We also got incredibly lucky to have a whale surface like 30 feet from the vessel ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ฎ. When we ever get back to Maui this is the one tour I would definitely do again. Thank you Sage and Cru!

Thank you Sage and Vene for an unbelievable experience. It was a once in a lifetime memory for my children , the Ash scattering ceremony was everything and more than I could have Imagined. A private charter is the only way to go. Mahalo !!

The sailing experience was one of our favorites excursions in Maui! The snorkeling was great! The owner was very experienced and shared so much Hawaiian history! Him and his son were very kind and made the experience wonderful! Our family had the canoe all to ourselves! The weather was beautiful. Our kids are 9, 14,and 17 years old and they along with my husband loved it! I would highly recommend and do it again.

We only picked one guided excursion to take on this trip and we were so lucky to pick this one. Sage has tremendous knowledge and experience and his love of the Hawaiian islands and joy of sailing radiated our whole experience. My nine year old twins loved the experience as much as my husband and myself. What a beautiful day to end our 8 day trip on Maui. Thank you Sage and Kira.
