Welcome aboard Winona, our 50-foot, Polynesian style sailing catamaran! Winona is U.S.C.G. Certified for a maximum of 49 passengers, with plenty of room to comfortably accommodate large groups while still being cozy enough for smaller, intimate gatherings. She has a 3/4 covered cabin area to protect you from the sun and wind, and her large viewing windows allow you to still enjoy the views outside from her covered seating area. Her open deck is spacious and provides plenty of outside seating and areas to sunbathe. Winona's "Stairway to the Sea" allows easy access to and from the ocean for snorkelers and swimmers. She is equipped with two restrooms for your convenience. The dress code on Winona is casual to resort attire. We suggest flat, soft-soled shoes or sandals. Hard sole or high heel shoes are not recommended. Winona does have nonskid decking so bare feet are welcome. We recommend you bring along sunglasses, a hat or visor, waterproof sunscreen and a beach cover up to help protect you from the sun. Towels are provided. Our helpful staff will provide instructions and then equip you with all you need for a spectacular snorkeling experience! Mask, Fins and Snorkel sets or View Boards with built in windows are available to start your adventure. We offer everyone a safety vest and defogger to help keep your experience both safe and fun! If you would like a special keepsake of your group's event, let us know. We can arrange professional video services (above and below the surface) for your group at an additional cost. For individual travelers staying on the Resort's grounds, the hotels provide free shuttle service to and from our departure and arrival locations. Our Captains and Crew look forward to assisting you in creating wonderful memories of your stay in Hawaii! Aloha!

Sunset Sail: this older catarmaran was nice, but it had more covered "indoor" seating than outside seating (unlike the newer larger cats in Maui); the boat felt crowded at 40-45 passengers - the sunset sail was nice, but two passengers (in different groups) were obnoxiously...More

Hi We are staying in the Arenal Volcano area prior to coming to Andaz. What would be the best way to go from one resort to the other? I would prefer to not rent a car. Also, is there a contact for planning excursions? thanks!

Hi, Sorry I am not very familiar with how to get around Hawaii, we rented a car so not sure of what your alternatives are. We planned our excursions for the Mauna Lani Sea Adventures through their website. The hotel does... More
