This was my first experience on a sail boat and it was the best thing I've done on Maui. It was a great intimate experience that we got to share on our friend's birthday. Capt Kea and Allie were super friendly and nice, it feels like we were sailing with old friends. Allie also took great pictures for you so its just one less thing to worry about. This beats a catamaran any day.

Wonderful sail, perfect for a family or close friends celebration. Capt. Kea and Allie were great! They were experienced, lively, and full of great stories. But best of all, it was a relaxing, gorgeous experience. We did 3 hours sunset sail which was perfect. Not too long (if that's even possible) and not too short, although it leaves you wanting just a little bit more. Amazing. Thank you all!

Beautiful, fast, safe, and well maintained boat with a friendly , experienced captain. We totally enjoyed our second sail on Gungho and look forward to going out again. A great way to get some sailing time and a lot easier than taking out my boat!

My father came out to Hawaii for 2 months to see us and his grandbaby. He wanted to do one thing while in Hawaii - go sailing. Captain Kea did not disappoint my dad. My family came along (minus the baby) for a 2-hour sail. Captain Kea asked if we wanted to head into the strong wind near Kaanapali that day or have a leisurely cruise toward Olowalu. We opted for the adventure. The waves were high and we got wet but it was awesome. The boat is fast and the Captain is skilled. He sailed his whole family to Tahiti from Hawaii on the same vessel. The Captain answered all of our sailing questions while my dad manned the rudder. We got to do a little sailing ourselves but we mostly enjoyed the view and looked for whales. It was a great time. His slip is in Lahaina harbor so it is easy to get to him. His online portal is super easy to use since you can see his availability and book immediately. If you want to go sailing without 20+ people then this is the sailboat trip for you.

Our captain, Keahi, was amazing from start to finish. From the moment we booked our sailing tour to the moment we stepped off of the boat, everything was excellent. This was my first time sailing and Gungho over delivered on my expectations. We jumped in the water to snorkel and Keahi even taught us how to steer the boat and adjust the sails. 100% recommend this tour if you're looking to get on the water while in Maui.
