‘Alihilani translates to where the heavenly horizon meets the sea, and we’d like to invite you to meet us there. Sail Maui is still offering the same great performance sunset sail on Paragon, but we are pleased to introduce ‘Alihilani for an elevated experience. Our deluxe new 65’ Catamaran is spacious, comfortable, and all about the views. Lounge on the forward trampolines, find a comfortable seat with panoramic island views, or take cover under our 575 square feet of covered cabin space for a break from the elements. Beverages including locally brewed beer, Mai Tais, wine, and champagne are served as well as hot & cold pupus (appetizers).

During season, enjoy the thrill of watching the humpback whales that make their way to Hawaii each year. (December – May)

Casual attire and light jacket recommended.

These folks do sunset sails - high performance Paragons get the most visibility/bookings. ‘Alihilani is recent addition to fleet. It is larger / "slower" than the Paragons, but less likely to be full, goes out at 4:00 pm vs 4:30 pm for Paragons, so more time on water. We sailed on Alihilani and had great experience. There were roughly 20 pass. We embarked on time and motored to get well out. There was nice wind and we had great run back under full sail with jib. Feb timing meant whales in abundance, and we had lucky sustained views of a competition run of multiple males at full speed jousting around a female. Lot of other whales as well. Crew was friendly and professional, and attentive with drinks and conversation. They took their time to optimize whale encounters and time out on the water, collaborating with other ships, and no sense of being in a rush to get us back to shore. In fact we returned about 45 minutes "late" since we kept encountering whales as we returned to the pier. Very low key about tips as well. That being said, please keep in mind that for crew, tips are a big part of their income. They keep us safe, and I have full confidence in them doing so. In such cases, which is thankfully the norm in Hawaii, I try and be generous in my thanks and tipping.

Sunset Sailing

Wonderful late afternoon & sunset sail (4-6:30) with Sail Maui on board their 'Alihilani 65ft. catamaran. Beautiful boat, great staff and service. Although we didn't have much wind we were able to sail thanks to Captain Patrick. It was great to enjoy the peaceful landscape, waters and whales of Maui while sailing vs. motoring. It was nice to stay out on the water until 6:30 pm which allows one to enjoy the entire sunset vs. returning at 6:00 pm like most other boats. Aloha and Mahalo to Sail Maui and their staff.
