This boat is the best. Smaller groups with more personal touch from the crew. The crew was very interesting telling us of their past sailing and answering all of our questions about the area, whales, and sailing. This was our third time on this boat and we will go again on our next trip to Maui.

always a terrific experience with SAILS UP! No motoring on the spectacular Scotch Mist. Marty and Alex ROCK for service, sailing acumen and fun.

For several years I have traveled to Maui to watch the activities of whales, leaving the Lahaina harbor on the super rafts operated by Maui Adventure Cruises, which I did with great satisfaction this year a couple of times. But I noticed the sailboat Scotch Mist (apparently with the same owner) in slip 2, and thought I would like to... More

Captain Marty and First Mate Alex have St Elmo's Fire running between them as a pair of sea going adventurers with the ability to captivate and mesmerize passengers from all walks of life. Sea stories, knowledge of Whales and the Sea, and above all one of the coolest twosomes to sail this sleek vessel on Maui's shores. Beautiful ship, great... More

Great experience for an all girls vacation in Maui. I've done the larger catamaran sailing excursions in the past, but I enjoyed the smaller sail boat. The crew was great and friendly. We had an awesome experience and would definitely recommend.

They do everything they can to make your time on the water a great experience. We have been sailing on the Scotch Mist II for... More

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.
