What a great adventure we had. Whales breaching and spouting all over the place. Alma Rosa and Michelle were lovely mates who provided lots of really interesting information for our group of 8. The weather was great, the sailing fun. We would definitely go again.

We had a group of 24, 10 adults and 14 pre-teens and teens. All 24 of us loved our 4 hours of sailing on the Scotch Mist II. Michelle was incredibly accomodating and helpful in setting up the cruise and then once on board, we were well taken care of by captain Turk, Michelle and Alma Rosa. The young ladies were fantastic with our kids sharing loads of fun facts about Whales and Maui. Michelle led the group to snorkel which was amazing also. The whale watching was incredible. Thanks to the Scotch Mist crew for an afternoon that was unforgettable. You're the best!

We went with another couple on a sunset cruise which was very nice. The woman captain and her crew were skilled, trained, competent, engaging, courteous, and fun.

Champagne, chocolates, whales, mild breezes, warm temperatures and a nice sunset made the sail comfortable and enjoyable.

The captain was not shy about going towards the whales and in fact her lead was soon followed by a big, obnoxious, stinky diesel powered whale watch party boat which forces us to sail away from the whales. We found others!

The next cruise was in the morning with the owner / captain. This crew was 50% trainees, the sun was out, the wind was stronger and as others reported the captain seemed to avoid going towards when he was piloting. Thankfully the 1st mate piloted quite a bit and we did get very close to quite a few whales.

We were tacking quite a bit and with the winds up, sitting on top front of the cabin was not as comfortable as the prior cruise (more listing on a steep angle). That said we made it almost out the Lanai and back in the time we had and it was just a beautiful day.

Based on our experience I would recommend the female captain over the owner / elderly gentleman captain if whales is what you are after.

I took my wife and boys out to get a sail and watch the whales. Not only did they give us the ultra close up's of the whales, we got some good old fashion sailing. I grew up racing sailboats and they gave us the hiking thrill! Thanks, Dennis Clemens Des Monies, Iowa

We just arrived home after staying in Maui for a month. One of the major reasons we go to Maui is to sail with Scotch Mist ll. They are a really great charter to get out on the water with. We love to sail and to do it during whale season is extra great. They are a classy 50 foot Santa Cruz and they know how to make the passengers feel very welcome and give them a great experience. Thank you Gene, Gene, Turk, Debbie Jean, Michelle, and Amorosa. Thanks for a great month and see you in 2014.
