14. SAIL THE OCEAN BLUE

101 Things to Do (Maui) - - Essential Maui -

Maui is one of the world's pre­mier sail­ing des­ti­na­tions. What­ever your SAIL­ING pref­er­ence, you'll find it here. Sin­gle-hull, dou­ble­hulled and tri-hulled YACHTS AND CATAMARANS of all sizes of­fer great sail­ing ad­ven­tures. SAIL­BOATS leave daily from MA‘ALAEA HAR­BOR in South Maui, LA­HAINA HAR­BOR in West Maui and from the beach at KA‘ANA­PALI, car­ry­ing any­where from six to 100plus pas­sen­gers. Al­though winds are usu­ally light in the morn­ing, by mid-af­ter­noon the trades pick up, giv­ing sailors a faster trip back to port. By even­ing, it's gen­tle again—calm enough to en­joy cock­tails as you watch the sun­set. Some sail­boats of­fer SNOR­KEL­ING, as well as food and other re­fresh­ments. If you're lucky, you might spot a pod of DOL­PHINS, HAWAI­IAN MONK SEALS or (sea tur­tles) honu swim­ming by. Whether you skim over the water at more than 15 knots, or take the helm on a ves­sel that com­peted in the 1987 World Cup, sail­ing on Maui is al­ways an ad­ven­ture.
