This was a perfect day on the water. Felt safe with the vessel and the crew for the entire ride. They stayed out longer than they agreed to and were very gracious hosts. The skipper has a phenomenal resume in competitive sailing, world class actually.

We really enjoyed this! Relaxing and great views of whales. Service on board was excellent. Check in was disorganized.

If you love to sail, this is the whale watch for you. Skipper Marty and First Mate Alex set the sails as soon as you leave the port of Lahaina. Most whale watching “sails” on the big catamarans are really “motors,” not sails. We love...More

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!
