Morning Snorkel Sail
Scotch Mist Sailing Charters offers a fun and exciting morning snorkel sail from Lahaina Harbor. Maui is quite possibly the perfect location for sailing and snorkeling due to its pristine crystal clear water, abundance of marine life, and gentle trade winds. Join us on our 50’ Santa Cruz sailing yacht for a thrilling 4 hour adventure. Our knowledgeable captain and crew will guide you to the best snorkeling spots on the West Maui Coast and will choose the perfect location for the day depending upon prevailing conditions.
During Whale Season which runs from mid-December through early-April. Our Morning Snorkel Sail has the possibility of whale sightings, especially during January and February. We sail among the majestic Humpback Whales who migrate to Maui waters and inhabit the Lahaina Roadstead for several months to mate and give birth to calves.
The Scotch Mist quietly sails amongst these leviathans who range 40 to 60 feet in length and can weigh in excess of 40 tons and come close enough to our sailing yacht to have our guests look “Eye-to-Eye” with them during “Up Close and Personal Encounters”. The Morning Snorkel Sail is a special excursion combining a little bit of luxury relaxation – with the possibility of sighting the natural wonders of our Humpback Whales.
Personal service is our trademark and tradition. Come join us and sail away!!
