Surrounded by Water
Champagne Sunset Sail
Sail till sunset aboard one of our 3 well-appointed world-class sailing catamarans on our Champagne Sunset Sail. You can take the helm under the guidance of our experienced and friendly captains, or simply relax on deck in the warm ocean breezes. Bring your appetite and feast on a Paniolo (that’s Hawaiian for “cowboy”) Barbeque Buffet, including BBQ ribs, fried chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, 2 salads, rolls and dessert prepared by an award winning local chef. Sip on beverages from our complimentary open bar featuring island brews on tap, our Captain’s Signature Cocktails, and refreshing tropical juices. Toast the elusive Green Flash with Champagne at sunset – a perfect end to an island day. And we can help you celebrate your special love with a “Ceremony at Sea” Vow Renewal. We’ll conduct a unique ceremony, provide fresh flower lei, and a personalized certificate, and top it all off with a Champagne Toast (nominal fee applies). For information and reservations, call 808-886-6666 ext 103. M, W, F, Sat, 5pm (Changes to 4:30pm on Sept 1 and 4:00 on October 1-March 31)
