About Scotch Mist Sailing Charters
Scotch Mist Sailing Charters is the premier sailing charter company on Maui. Enjoy stunning scenic views as you glide silently along the sparkling blue waters off Maui’s West Coast. The Scotch Mist is a fun and fast yacht, built in 1982 for racing by famed builder Bill Lee in Santa Cruz, California. In fact, she is the fastest production line sailboat of her size in the world, having won “first in class” in the prestigious Victoria-to-Maui Yacht race, besting her competition by over 24 hours. The speed of this awesome sailing vessel is truly exhilarating and the serenity of your surroundings will leave you feeling completely relaxed and at ease. Enjoy one of our complimentary beverages local beer, white wine, soda, juices & water with champagne added on the Sunset Sail, and let us do all the work!

The whole experience was just awesome! The crew was very experienced and made us feel safe, comfortable and welcome. My wife and I couldn't have asked for more for our first ever sailing trip. We give it ☆☆☆☆☆

What a wonderful crew (Steve and Nate). Thank you. Beautiful weather, great company and drinks. The views were lovely and not too rocky for those with a weak tummy. Great time!

We enjoyed our trip on Scotch Mist for the Lahaina Sunset in February 2022. About 20 people, plus crew. Very friendly, appropriate safety precautions for a sailboat, and pleasant conversation with the other folks on board.

Sailing aboard the Scotch Mist gives you the chance to meet our other passengers and make new friends on Maui. Big plus for a small vessel and low passenger count. We look forward to your next sail with us soon. Aloha. Don Kidder, General Manager

Boat was nice, staff was great, I was just disappointed with the amount of sailing we did. We were on the 2:30 sail, I specifically picked this because it was a sail, not a snorkel cruise, but we stopped halfway through and let people swim, and that was the end of the sailing. I was just disappointed we weren't sailing the whole time.

Aloha. Sorry you did not like the short swim stop. Summer heat sometimes requires a little change. See the guests' comments below who really liked the swim stop. It was NOT long and NOT a snorkel event. Thanks for the compliments to our crew---they really try to make it a good trip for our passengers. Hope you enjoyed all the beverages. come back to Maui soon. Take Care. Don Kidder, General Manager
