This was a wonderful sailing experience on a very sleek boat. The captain had experience on America’s Cup sailboats. We’ve been used to catamarans, which are much wider. We were treated to champagne and chocolates during our sail. There were nine of us on the...More

Champagne, sunset, chocolate, and a sail boat. This was the perfect way to finish out a day in paradise. Captain Alex was charming and knowledgeable, and first mate Marty kept the champagne flowing. Highly recommend.

I've never heard of them going to Molokini, but I like Idaho Spud's suggestion of contacting them and we know people who have chartered them for a special trip of their own

Aloha, The Scotch Mist II is located at Slip #2 in Lahaina Harbor. Check in is at 4:30, departure is between 5-5:15. The Sunset sail is 2 hours long, so typically are back in the harbor around 7-7:15 PM. Mahalo!
