Maui’s climate and prevailing trade winds provide some of the best sailing in the Pacific especially when embarking from Kaanapali or Lahaina.
Sailboats and catamarans ply the waters up and down the coast of West and South Maui, stopping near secluded beaches, anchoring in rocky inlets, or hugging mountainous cliffs that plunge deep into the ocean. Some are out-and-out sailing trips, seeking out the wind line far out in the channel; other Maui sailing vessels combine snorkeling or light-line fishing in calmer waters. The best winds are usually in the afternoon, with Maui sailing trips in the morning and evening of a lighter nature – just as fun, just easier going.
