Definition of romance: chartering your private yacht to propose to your loved one while in Hawaii. Imagine saying “YES” while sailing into the sunset.
Sail Sunset on Valentine’s Day
This Valentine’s Day was a highlight for me. I have been running private charters for many years now but this one stands out. The young couple, delighted in each other, chose to spend their time on the forward deck…what I call the “best seat in the house”. Not long into our sunset sail, a whale breeched, some distance from us but still out-of-this-world spectacular. We spent the two hours enjoying 2 whale groups as they swam and played in Mamala Bay. Honolulu, Hawaii. Humpback whale sighting rules are strict here: keep a minimum 100 yard distance and do not change direction to follow them. No worries! We just sailed our track and the whales theirs and the show went on. The couple I took sailing earlier in the day have been thrilled daily by whale sightings from their Waikiki lanai. But there is NOTHING better than seeing them from your Hawaii private yacht.
Yep. As if the humpbacks weren’t thrilling enough, the Hawaiian spinner dolphins came out to play. Usually in my sailing area, dolphins cruise by around 10 in the morning. So imagine the thrill of this huge pod swimming in Kaikiwi’s bow wake, frolicking and spinning all around us. WOW! As sunset came on, he asked, she said “YES”! How could you not after a show like this?

Why a private sailing charter?
Your private sailing charter in Hawaii is perfect for intimate gatherings, family vacations, or romantic getaways. It comes with an exceptionally experienced captain and crew who are knowledgeable about the islands’ marine life, culture, and history. You will enjoy tradewind sailing as only Hawaii can offer.
What will we see?
The stunning coastal landscapes, crystal-clear waters, and the chance to see marine wildlife up close makes your private sailing charter an unforgettable experience. However, it’s essential to book in advance, especially during peak tourist seasons, to ensure availability and secure your preferred sailing date.
Tradewind sailing at its best. Call Sail Blue Hawaii today for YOUR private Hawaii sailing charter.
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 Oahu?
Common marine wildlife sightings on Oahu are 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 about the island.
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!
Your birthday is a great excuse to get out of bed early and experience the Diamond Head Sunrise Cruise. Greet the new day aboard our private boat charter “Kaikiwi“. Not only a great photo opportunity but something special to remember on your vacation in Honolulu. Certainly not everyone is an early riser but the view of Diamond Head is well worth the effort. And the view of early morning Waikiki is the best! Yes, the best way to see Waikiki is from a distance.
Why go sailing while on a Hawaii Vacation?
A sunrise sailing charter starts with a lighter gentle early morning wind. Morning is also the best time for a sailing lesson. We start with a lighter wind and build your lesson as the wind builds. Your sailing lesson will begin at 0800. Earlier if you prefer, esp if you have just flown in from the east coast. Yes, include sunrise with your private sailing lesson.
