Day 1: Day sail to Honolua Bay
We board the vessel in Historic Lahaina Harbor, Maui and set sail for Honolua Bay. This first leg is a relaxing sail along Maui’s hotel district, enjoy the views of Molokai, Lanai, and looking back to Maui as we work our way along the coast to our destination. Honolua Bay is world famous for it’s surfing and is also a fish preserve. It is a perfectly protected anchorage, here you can spend the day swimming with the fish, or take a walk along the top of the cliffs. Honolua is a popular local spot and one of Hawaii’s best.
Day 2: Offshore Sailing
We get a late start and set sail towards Molokai to pick up the trade winds, then tack and sail downwind towards Lanai, then tack again and reach in towards Kaanapali. Kaanapali is the hotel district on Maui and a great place to go ashore for shopping, dinner, head over to Lahaina, or just to hang out on the beach. We stay here for the night so go ahead and explore.
