Ash Scattering/ Life Celebration in Hawaii

It’s easy to understand why you would want to celebrate your loved one on a private yacht on the blue Pacific waters off Oahu. Hawaii has a strong spiritual energy both on and off the ocean. A farewell at sea is a healing and soothing way to say goodbye and begin anew.

Customise your Hawaii Ash Scattering.

If you would like to include your pastor, or other, to conduct a service and/or blessing for you, please do. If you have no connections here, reach out and we can give you some suggestions. Perhaps you’d like to sail longer than just the time it takes to celebrate and scatter. What time of day is best? Because this is custom sailing, we can sail any time of day you want and whatever length of time you wish. Our islands are most consistently graced with trade winds so any time is a good time to go sailing…✨SUNRISE, morning, afternoon, SUNSET✨.  It is all good.

Sail Blue Hawaii specialises in Private Sailing Tours on Oahu, also offering all popular boat charters and sailing instruction in Honolulu. Before you go buy that sailboat, come sail with me!

Private Sailing Lessons, Honolulu

“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! 🙂

Hawaii’s best sunset cruise

While vacationing in Honolulu, Oahu, do make sure you sign up for Hawaii’s best sunset cruise. You live here? Great! You have so many reasons and chances to sail Hawaii’s best sunset cruise.

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?
  • Kaikiwi is the best-kept boat in Hawaii’s charter fleet. Step aboard a clean and bristol yacht and treat yourselves to the Hawaii’s best sunset cruise.
  • 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.

Let’s go sailing Oahu, Hawaii

Kaikiwi sails from Oahu’s south shore. You will embark at Kewalo Basin boat harbor, not far from Waikiki beach hotels. We sail past beautiful coastline in the cobalt blue blue waters of our Pacific. The south shore is the protected side of Oahu: calm and crystal clear, making it the perfect sailing destination.

Why Go Sailing in Oahu?

Common marine wildlife sightings on Oahu are for example, Hawaiian green sea turtles, honu, dolphins, nai’a, and humpback whales, kohola (in winter season only). In addition, flying fish, malolo are some of the critters we may see as we sail.

Incredible Sights While Sailing

Beautiful breathtaking views of Diamond Head are just one of the highlights while sailing Oahu. On clear days, although far in the distance, Molokai and Lanai can sometimes be seen from the island of Oahu. This is not destination sailing, destination is sailing!
