The Best Sailing in all of Maui!

What can we say again, just the 2 of us. Wanting to sail, no fanfare of dinner and drinks. Just the Ocean, a great sail boat and of course, Mike and Malcolm! It was a prefect day, and nice windy day.. Seemed like we were the only ones in the water. And then to our surprise it started to rain... More

Our family with 3 teenagers booked a sunset sail through our concierge at the grand Wailea. Captain Mike and Malcolm couldn't have been more gracious and accommodating. They were happy to arrange appetizers that met with some dietary restrictions. Our youngest was nervous about the sailboat, and Malcolm patiently explained how the boat was safe and talked about how he... More

We took a 4 hour morning sail and snorkel with Captain Mike and crew. What a class act. Very friendly, laid-back yet a professional 5 star experience. The sailing was fun, the snorkeling was fantastic, and the snacks/fruits/sandwiches were delicious. We will definitely do this again when we return.

I wanted to take my family for a quiet sail and we found the perfect sail trip for my husband and I and our two teenage sons. The Shadowfax is a beautiful sail boat and handled masterfully by Mike the Captain and his most gracious first mate Malcolm. My family had not experienced the joys of sailing before and this...

A few of us spent the afternoon sailing with Mike and Malcolm, on the fabulous Shadowfax - a 44' boat 'built to sail' as Mike said. The crew could not have been more friendly or attentive - they ascertained we had a nervous sailor on board and did everything to make her comfortable (and we lucked out with a very... More

(Okay, maybe our daughter's wedding was the highlight of our Maui stay, but this was a close second!) Great experience! Mike and Malcolm took our group of 6 on a 2.5 hour charter. We got to take the helm, winds were perfect. Brisk sail, lots of heeling. Great guys. Very down to earth. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Excellent! We had a great family sailing 2.5 hour private charter. Very smooth ride and children were happy and safe, well looked after by attentive first mate Malcolm. Fresh fruit, banana bread and donuts accompanied our departure. A house prepared ginger ale settled our 7 year-old's queasy tummy. In contrast to some previous motorboat excursions this was so peaceful and... More
