The crew is very experienced, accommodating, and engaged the passengers with interesting conversation about sailing and island information. The 50 foot sailboat is stable and dry, which makes for a nice two hour sunset cruise. We got many great pictures of the island and the...More

Exactly the sunset sail we were looking for - about 15 people aboard a 50ft sailboat certified for 22 - unlimited drinks (champagne, wine, beer, soft drinks), super knowledgeable and friendly crew (mahalo, captain Marty and mate Alex!), ACTUAL sailing (!!), and a beautiful Maui...More

This was a perfect day on the water. Felt safe with the vessel and the crew for the entire ride. They stayed out longer than they agreed to and were very gracious hosts. The skipper has a phenomenal resume in competitive sailing, world class actually.

We really enjoyed this! Relaxing and great views of whales. Service on board was excellent. Check in was disorganized.

If you love to sail, this is the whale watch for you. Skipper Marty and First Mate Alex set the sails as soon as you leave the port of Lahaina. Most whale watching “sails” on the big catamarans are really “motors,” not sails. We love...More

We had done other whale watching cruises on the big, motorized boats with 100+ passengers, but enjoyed the Scotch Mist much more. Being on a beautiful 50' sailing vessel with only 20 other passengers really enhanced the amazing scenery and sunset experience. And, we were...More

I've never heard of them going to Molokini, but I like Idaho Spud's suggestion of contacting them and we know people who have chartered them for a special trip of their own

Aloha, The Scotch Mist II is located at Slip #2 in Lahaina Harbor. Check in is at 4:30, departure is between 5-5:15. The Sunset sail is 2 hours long, so typically are back in the harbor around 7-7:15 PM. Mahalo!
