Aloha & Mele Kalikimaka Everyone. After months of browsing I finally found the TA for this Sailing. I first noticed the Va'a Kinikini at Cooks Monument while with a different tour. I swam over and spoke to Kalani who gave me the "411" about his boat. We sailed the Kinikini several days later and thoroughly enjoyed it. The boat is designed like a traditional Hawaiian Sailing canoe (plus the state-required outboard motor) minus a Commode so be aware of that. Our guides were actual Hawaiians and far more informative with Hawaiian customs, traditions, history, etc., than any other sailing I have been on in Hawai'i (and I've done tours on Oahu, Maui & Big Island, some more than once. Lunch was provided along with drinks. Our Capt. wasn't Kalani but his replacement was a wealth of information and entertaining (antics and with a ukulele and Tahitian Toere). All sailing adventures I have taken in Hawai'i were great and I would do them again, however, if you truly wants a Hawaiian Cultural Experience with your sailing adventure I highly recommend sailing with the Kinikini out of Keauhou Bay; book thru the Sheraton Keauhou. I will be back next month on my next visit. Kalani, if you read this : 'Ianuali, Au 'ahu ka Malo, hahaaha.
