This is a unique activity on the island. Join us for an intimate experience aboard a 45 foot Traditional Hawaii Sailing Canoe, made by one of the young owners. The canoe has sailed throughout the Hawaiian islands, and provides an experience that even our kama'aina (locals) have yet to experience. The sail is an hour and a half aboard the sailing canoe, in which we tour all of Hanalei Bay and see the breathtaking landscape just how it was seen from offshore by the ancient Hawaiians. Our team is made up of experienced watermen and women that have grown up in and around the water and want to share this beautiful lifestyle that they have with their guests. The team is knowledgeable about the host culture, the making of sailing canoes, paddling and the ocean.

Island Sails is one of the outfits you can find at the St. Regis Hotel. We did a private sunset sail on the outrigger sailing canoe with Jeremy. Incredible experience at sunset in the open seas. Thrilling.

We had seen these boats sailing around Hanalei Bay on a previous visit but it took a little hunting to figure out how to get a ride. I really liked the small boats, putting you right on the water with just a few passengers. I...More
