We certainly wish we could take the credit for the great sailing breeze, the calm waters, bright sunshine, and perfect sunset! But alas, all we could do was stand by and do what we could to support nature! Mahalo Nui!

I recommend sailing with the holy grail. It was a beautiful day off the coast of kona. Stephanie and Howard were knowledgeable about the area and sailing. We got to see pilot whales. Their hospitality was over the top with excellent appetizers and refreshments.

Kaitlin, We enjoyed that day as well. Paradise certainly lived up to it's reputation by providing good sailing, calm seas, and interesting wild life. A fitting day for a very special family. Mahalo for sailing with us. Captain Howard
