If you're into real sailing, these are the guys to go out with. We did both the afternoon and the sunset sail and had a great time on both. They are conveniently located at the lahaina wharf behind the banyan tree. The fee was very reasonable compared to other excursion boats. Highly recommend scotch mist for a fun day of... More

The Champagne Sunset Sail was the most AMAZING experience! From the moment our family stepped foot on board, the crew treated us like royalty! We were able to relax, chat, watch for whales (we saw a mother & calf!), and just enjoy being on the ocean. The crew offered us chocolates and beverages and made themselves available for all kinds...

Capt. Mike & crew mate are real professionals. We had only 12 people on the 50ft sailboat. We sailed for 1 hours and saw many whales, some with their calves. This trip is far better than packed with 75-100 people on a large vessel.

Great sail today with Captain Marty and Alex. Good winds, lots of whales and great company on board. We will definitely do again.

Nothing more peaceful and fun than a sunset cruise with these guys! Marty and Alex are awesome!! So much more peaceful and relaxing than the larger. Pats in the Barbour that pack too many people on and run noisy smelly motors for your entire trip. Drinks are refilled promptly, crews is friendly and the. Pat is beautiful. Do yourself a... More

I've been sailing on Scotch Mist since the 80's and make a point to go on several sunset sails every time I'm on Maui. This last sail was one for the record books, with a lot of steady strong wind. We raced over the water heeling over (Captain Marty was sure to tell us the boat wouldn't flip over), and... More

Scotch Mist might not appeal to everyone because it is a small group (we were 16), you are actually sailing on a vintage Victoria-Maui race veteran Santa Cruz 50, and you get to experience the physicality of sailing in Hawaiian waters. I do admit to bias. We're one of the ones that go out on her every time we're in... More

We had good winds so it was an exciting sail across to Lana'i in the afternoon. Very fast boat and skilled crew, who were friendly and fun. We had some great up-close whale watching. When a hat went overboard the captain expertly turned back to retrieve it but it wasn't reachable. This is a laid-back but professional crew. If you... More

We have been sailing on the Scotch Mist for 12 years. We always go out in March and the boat and crew are the best. We highly recommend including the Scotch Mist in any Maui adventure.

Had a wonderful time with visiting family and friends on a sunset sail. My parents mentioned it felt like a second honeymoon excursion for them, and the rest of us hung out on the bow of the boat. Captain Marty did a great job sailing, even with just 5 knot winds and crew Alex kept smiles on our faces and... More
