Hawaii whale watch

It was a fabulous afternoon with tradewind sailing at its best while enjoying our Hawaii whale watch. Captain Gaelyn managed to find two sets of mom and calf humpbacks in the bay. Our private sailing charter was also blessed with dolphins swimming in Kaikiwi’s bow wake. I had read on her website: “watch spinner dolphins surfing the bow wake” but thought that an exaggeration. Nope! much to our delight.

Honolulu’s best private sailing charter

It is perfect in today’s world to sail with Sail Blue Hawaii. We choose Captain Gaelyn and her “Kaikiwi” because of her beautifully maintained sailboat and the “private” sailing charter. Keeping family safe while having fun on the ocean was our priority. Humpbacks, dolphins, turtles, flying fish… all in one fabulous balmy afternoon. When we wrote for information on her private sailing charter, she wrote back:

“Kaikiwi” sails from Oahu’s south (protected) shore, not far from Waikiki, past beautiful coastline in the cobalt blue blue waters of our Pacific.  Wildlife such as green sea turtles, “honu”, dolphins, “nai’a”, humpback whales, “kohola” (in winter season only), and flying fish, “malolo” are some of the critters we may see as we sail. Beautiful views of Oahu, Diamond Head and, on clear days, far in the distance, Molokai and Lanai can sometimes be seen. Please understand this is not “destination” sailing.  “Destination” is sailing.

We didn’t miss out on one single thing in that very wordy paragraph. Cobalt blue blue? Understated! Wildlife? They were all out to play. Molokai and Lanai were both there, yes, in the distance. Destination? Sailing!

Whether you are signing up for a Hawaii whale watch, a sunset cruise, a sunrise cruise, or just an afternoon of private sailing, write for your custom quote today. Sailing with Sail Blue Hawaii could well be the highlight of your Hawaii vacation. Locals welcome too 🙂

Hawaii ash scattering at sea

Recently, a grieving family called me to see if it was a possibility to scatter their loved ones ashes at sea in Hawaii. YES, this is a wonderful way to memorialise your special person. There is nothing more healing than being out on the ocean to celebrate this momentous occasion.

Life Memorial at sea, Oahu, Hawaii.

Not only were we blessed with a beautiful water day, a mum and calf humpback whale showed up to give an extra blessing. An unexpected whale watching cruise absorbed the sadness of the occasion and the family on board felt truly blessed:

“Dear Capt Gaelyn,

We have all said that his farewell could not have been more perfect even if we had scripted the event.  It was so peaceful and perfect for each of us to have our intimate moments with him then let him go.  I know that he is now exactly where he wanted to be. That is a huge comfort.  We are all re-charging our Aloha spirit for our return to the mainland.  You will never know how very much we appreciate how perfectly you aided our final farewell to our Bill. Thank you is inadequate but all we can offer.”
