Scotch Mist Sailing Charters
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 October 2013

If you are looking for good company, plenty of booze, an intimate setting, photo taking opportunities, a beautiful sunset, and a fantastic sailing adventure, then Scotch Mist is the one for you. My wife and I had a fun time with the crew and 4 other couples on the boat. The crew was exeptionally friendly and they kept the drinks coming. We had a choice of light beer (budlight I believe) and/or champagne. They took our pictures on the front of the boat as well as with the captain. It's about an hour long and totally worth it. We'd do it again.

We went on the snorkel trip with two young children. Captain Turk is a very experienced skipper, he and his crew were nice to chat with and we really appreciated that they were so helpful with the kids. The initial planned snorkel spot was too murky, so we continued on to the second spot which was much clearer. Upon arrival, a large turtle surfaced next to the boat. The snorkelling was pretty good and it was great to go for a sail.

Very enjoyable champagne cruise with chocolate (or wine or beer.) Captain Turk and the deck hands were great. They made sure to make everyone welcome and created conversation with each person. The champagne, or other libation, was not a single small serving but refilled as much as you wanted. The views of the Maui coastline and picture taking opportunities were those that you cannot get except on the water,

The Scotch Mist II is a smooth sailing 50' vessel. As a small boat sailor I thoroughly enjoyed the two hours on the water but the sail is designed also for those who have never been on the water before. Do this before one of the powerboat cruises out of Lahiana.

My husband and I brought our three kids onto the Scotch Mist II. What a wonderful experience. It was so relaxing to be quietly sailing in the ocean and seeing Maui from an ocean view. Captain Gene and his crew were great! We were served wine and beer, and the kids had soda. Your able to walk around the boat and take great pictures. It's only two hours but it was so relaxing we could have gone longer. I don't recommend it for children under 5. They may get too restless ..Thank you Captain Gene! You and your crew were fabulous!

It took a few tries, but finally got enough people signed up to go on the snorkel trip on Tuesday September 17. Well worth the wait! Capt. Turk is a seasoned skipper and very easy to talk to. His first mate, Lacy, althought new to the boat, was very attentive to the 7 guests and fun to be with. We had to find an alternative snorkel site as the water was choppy and murky at Olowalu. The alternate spot was outstanding! Had several turtles on the surface before we could get in the water. As we arrived at the site, there were many flying fish to be seen.
The coral at this spot, maybe a couple miles south of Lahaina, was very alive and colorful. Saw a lone spotted eagle ray and a dozen green sea turtles and about every kind on fish you could possibly see in Hawaii.
Lacy brought out fresh fruit (pineapple, papaya, and orange) that was terrific along with water, soda, champagne and beer.
This was a wonderful sail and snorkel trip and the four hours went by way too fast. We've been on several of the catamaran snorkel trips on Maui, and all were good, but doing some real sailing made this trip even more enjoyable. We'll be doing this one again for sure!
