Hello! We are going to Waikiki this June with our family members of 10 for our son's graduation trip. Kids ages 15-20….4 adults…..this sounds terrific….would teens be bored (ugh sigh how could they) and two how costly was it?
Ahoy and thank you for your inquiry!
"KAIKIWI" has a US Coast Guard maximum of 6 passengers.
OR, the catamaran is available for sunset cruising @ $ 465 per hour for your 10.
Private sailing on "Kaikiwi", the 42 ft Beneteau 411 featured on my website begins at
$ 429.77 for up to 3 hours.
3-hour price includes Hi State tax (.04712), boat and captain's fee. It is not a per person rate.
Longer sailing events are a popular choice for most people:
$ 100 (plus tax) for each additional hour.
Because this is custom sailing, we can sail any time of day you want and whatever length of time you wish. Our islands are most consistently graced with trade winds so any time of day is a good time to go sailing...morning, afternoon, sunset. It is all good.
That being said, sunset cruising is all about kicking back and relaxing, perhaps enjoying a cocktail. To keep food on the table and the cocktail in your hand, I sail with a lighter sail plan than during the day.
If you want to throttle up and do some rail-in-the-water full-sail sailing, choose a day-sail (and, I promise, you can still enjoy your cocktail!)
"Kaikiwi" sails from Oahu's south (protected) shore, not far from Waikiki and includes sailing past beautiful coastline in the cobalt blue blue waters of our Pacific. Wildlife such as green sea turtles, "honu", dolphins, "nai'a", humpback whales, "kohola" (in winter season only), and flying fish, "malolo" are some of the critters we may see as we sail.
Bring food and beverage for your day/evening on the water. Adult beverages are welcomed on board but, please, no red wine.
To board and sail on Kaikiwi, all clients must be agile and mobile.
Because our coastline is subject to currents and has no secluded coves/ lagoons, if swimming, all must be strong swimmers and happens only if weather and ocean conditions are favorable; captain's call. Three-hour sunset cruises are not compatible with swimming due to late time of day. In other words, you must book a longer charter in order to have time to sail, be in the water with good light and watch the sun go down!
Please call me with your credit card details to book your charter.
To help you make the most of your private sailing adventure, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
With warm aloha,
Let's go sailing!
