“What an enjoyable experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

We have been doing the afternoon/sunset sails for many years. It is always a great time. The crew is exceptional -the kind of people you love to give the business to...

“Sunset Sail from Lahaina - Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Took the 2 hour sunset sail yesterday afternoon with Skipper Gene and his first mate Michelle and it was just lovely. We only motored long enough to hoist the sails and catch some wind so the trip is quiet and you can talk, move about the 50' boat and take pictures. We saw two rainbows over the Maui mountains and were served Korbel champagne and some mac nut chocolates. It is not a dinner cruise or even with pupus but returning to dock around 6pm is a good time to get a beach-side seat to dine at one of Lahaina's many restaurants. The sunset sail is a great value and provides a wonderful view of Maui from the water. Highly recommended.

“Sailing ala Lahaina”

The sailing trip out of Lahaina on the Scotch Mist was a blast! Our group of three were treated to excellent service, very personable staff and crew, and the ship was great! Perfect winds, perfect day!

“Scotch Mist II still our favorite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

We just returned from Maui and enjoyed our fifth sail on the Scotch Mist II during our stay. We always enjoy our time on the water, and this time we had the pleasure of taking family and friends out with us. Our group of 7 (plus Captain Gene, "1st mate" Michelle and another off-duty skipper) had the boat to ourselves on the 11 a.m. sail -- like our own private yacht at a fraction of the cost.
As always, the crew were friendly and tended to our drink needs throlughout the 2 hours at sea. Winds were good during much of the sail and we cruised well past Black Rock to the north before making the turn back to Lahaina Harbor.
The Scotch Mist II is our favorite boat for enjoying Maui's waters and our group all agreed that it was one of the most enjoyable outings of our trip. Can't wait for our next trip!
Thanks Captain Gene and Michelle!

“Great fun on the water!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

We went on a two-hour afternoon sail on the Scotch Mist out of Lahaina, and it was pure enjoyment! Captain Gene and his first mate Michelle made the sailing fun and interesting, but the boat itself is the star attraction. She's a very fast, smooth-sailing yacht that skims silently and effortlessly over the deep blue Pacific. If you love sailing, this is an attraction on Maui that you really shouldn't miss.
