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: Sailing to Lanai
We get a late start and set sail towards Molokai to pick up the trade winds, then tack and sail downwind to Lanai, where we stop for lunch and a swim along the coast. After lunch, we’ll continue towards Manele Bay, our destination for the night.
Day 3: Lanai-Manele Bay
This is a day ashore. There is a lot to see and explore on Lanai. Starting with the beach, a trip to town, golf, tennis, lunch in the mountains. Transportation is readily available via hotel shuttles, there is only one highway on the island and a hotel at each end.
Day 4: Lahaina Return
We get a late start and take a leisurely sail back to Maui. On this leg, we sail towards Kahoolawe, then tack in towards Maui, and make our approach to Lahaina from the South. During whale season, this area is excellent for whale watching as the seas are calm and the winds are light. We will arrive in Lahaina in the afternoon to disembark.
