“Best experience on Kauai”

Island Sails Kaua'i
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

We went out in the morning with Trevor and first snorkeled right off the cove. There were so many green turtles and tropical fish. The snorkleing was amazing! We then went sailing out past the reef - it was beautiful.

Our family had the pleasure of going out with Trevor on 7/11/17. We really enjoyed the experience on Trevor's Hawaiian Sailing Canoe (that he made himself). We had amazing weather and even turtles while snorkeling. It's so peaceful being out on the canoe. I would definitely recommend this!! Note: Bring cash for payment (no credit cards).

Far and away, sailing on the red canoe is the best experience in Kauai. Being on the canoe is like a trip back in time where you feel connected to the ocean and alive in a whole new way. I loved that this canoe was a traditional Hawaiian canoe rather than a large modern boat with 30 other guests.

Trevor is an amazing navigator and was able to pick a day and time where the ocean was calm so we could take our two young children to attend. My son still says the "red boat" was his best memory of our family vacation. I'd love to go back just my husband and I for a couple's evening sail.

I can't say enough great things about Trevor - the most down to earth, chill, knowledgeable person I've ever met. I felt 110% safe with him. Go sailing! You won't regret it.

Boarded the outrigger fitted with a sail and the fun began immediately. Jeremy included us in every minute of our adventure and regaled us with local lore about the waterfalls, mountains and valleys. We sailed out, dropped anchor and jumped in to snorkel. We saw at least 7 "honu" ( sea turtles ) including a baby one! My most memorable day of the 12 days I stayed on Kuaui. Congratulations Jeremy & Ivory on your engagement!

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.
