Take your own sailboat sailing in the beautiful Ma’alaea Bay, renowned for its steady breeze and crystal clear water. We can leave anytime you’d prefer to sail, snorkel and whale watch . A six hour private is the perfect amount of time to do several snorkeling spots, and sail around the bay. Whatever you ‘d like to do, we would like to customize a trip especially for you.
Begin by sailing around beautiful Maalaea bay which offers steady offshore winds and calm water. We then sail over to West Maui’s breathtaking Pali cliffs and pull in along the shoreline for our own private snorkeling spot.
Tucked beneath the cliffs are large coral outcroppings that make for beautiful underwater topography and snorkeling. We have a variety of sites along this coast that are some of Maui’s premier snorkel sites, including Coral Gardens. Only accessible by boat, you and your family can get away from large crowds and enjoy the peaceful serenity of a more private and tranquil spot.
Join us for your own Private Sunset Sail. Perfect for celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, proposals, bachelorette parties, quality family time, and more! Light appetizers and non-alcoholic beverages such as water, juices and sodas are provided but you are also welcome to bring alcohol on board. We have all the appropriate glassware for serving.
With NOAA’s Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary located right in Kihei, whale watching is the best in the world in Maalaea Bay. Every winter the same whale community ‘commutes’ from Alaska to birth their calves around Maui in our warm, safe waters.
Take your loved ones and friends sailing on your own boat with the help of a few crew! If desired, Shadowfax offers a hands-on learning experience for those who wish to learn about sailing!
