A Hawaii Sailing Vacation

Any occasion is a great one to get out sailing on Hawaiian waters to enjoy some relaxing and refreshing ocean time. Especially true here in Hawaii where the air is balmy and year-round trade winds provide Honolulu with wonderful sailing conditions.

The possibilities are endless and THE HORIZON IS NO LIMIT.

While sailing in Honolulu we often see Hawaiian green sea turtles lazing in the sun, dolphins jumping the bow, whales (winter only) spouting off to starboard, and the stunning shine of Venus at sunset. Leave Waikiki and the crowds behind. Step onto your own private yacht and enjoy the ride of your life. The wind is our engine as we sail the beautiful azure blue Pacific waters. The sound of the ocean is hard to beat.

Your safety and comfort are our number one concern: our vessels meet all U.S. Coast Guard inspection requirements.

“DON’T DREAM YOUR LIFE, LIVE YOUR DREAM”

Sailing is clouded in romance. Many people dream of a life of sailing and the adventure of perhaps one day sailing to distant shores. The reality is often different than the dream and this is important to understand.

Before you go buy that boat, come sailing with me and begin or continue learning the skills that will gain you confidence and give you a whole bunch of joy as you succeed. Your time “out there” with me will also give you a taste of what true blue-water sailing is all about.

You don’t have to have the dream of distant shores to sign up for a lesson…you can begin by taking up sailing as a day-hobby.

Do you have someone in your life who has always had an itch to try sailing but has never had the opportunity? Buy him/her a gift certificate for a private sailing lesson. It will be the best present they have ever had!

Whatever your goal is, the lesson will fit.

Even if you are the only one who wants to learn and you don’t wish to come alone, your friends/ family are welcome on board and can enjoy the sail while you learn.

Whether your dream is to sail the Waikiki coast or beyond that horizon (a multi-day charter is perfect for introducing you to all aspects of sailing and living aboard), your personalized lesson is waiting for you!

“You must have patience to learn the craft of sailing, which has set and orderly ways of doing each operation, schemes of success that have been polished for generations. Even the nautical vocabulary is specialized, for it is necessary to be able to describe every part of a vessel and to talk about each maneuver and action with unmistakable precision. You can learn the fundamentals quickly, but half a lifetime seems scarcely enough to perfect your techniques. A good sailor is always studying and learning and asking questions. People who travel and work on the sea tend to be literate souls who often write books. There is an astonishing library of nautical volumes that you can digest bit by bit to hurry your learning process. But in spite of the help to be got from books, you must learn about sailing at first hand. You do not become a seaman by reading. You need practice. You need to get your hands dirty” – HAL ROTH, after 50,000 miles

Is there an age limit? Nope. Best first mate yet! 🙂

5 reasons why Sail Blue Hawaii sunset cruise is a cut above the rest

  • You sail your own private yacht with captain. How perfect is that in today’s world?

  • Today could be a special occasion: celebrate with a Hawaii sunset cruise your birthday, graduation, wedding anniversary, or by saying “I do”. That being said, there is no special occasion necessary to enjoy the highlight of your Hawaii vacation.
  • You get to choose your refreshments. Pack a small cooler/ insulated bag with cooled beverage (other than water, which I have on board) and food refreshments you may require for your time on the water. If you do not have access to a cooler, you are welcome to use the one on board. Adult beverages are welcome but, please, no red wine. Catering options are also available.
  • Sunset cruising is all about kicking back and relaxing, perhaps enjoying a cocktail. I sail with that in mind. If you would like extend your cruise to see city lights, by one half hour or more, can do. This is common, especially on spectacular evenings. No need to decide til you are out there!.

There are too many reasons to list why Sail Blue Hawaii is a cut above the rest. Call and book Hawaii’s best sunset cruise and step aboard! Day-sailing and sunrise options also available.
