I Ke Kai Hawanawana

From the whispering sea

Local Knowledge


The most important asset of every boat is the crew. The Captain and crew have every intention of making your exclusive voyage the high point of your time in Hawai’i. Take advantage of their insights and experience, ask about that scar that runs down the back of their leg. Mariners have a different relationship to time and sea and wind, it’s a primordial connection. That morning puffy cloud on the brow of Maunakea might mean that it’s better to sail south today so that you can capture the flat waters outside Keahou. Your Captain and crew have most likely spent the better parts of their lives on the sea and while they might not say very much, what they do say is often apropos for the moment. They know some really bawdy stories too!

Blue and Glowing Days


Everyone has their idyllic expectation of the perfect vacation, some like to suck the marrow while others may find that everything is absorbed through weather and the sea. Every trip includes Big Island coffee, continental breakfast or afternoon cake and most, if not all, menu items are from local merchants. Auntie does know best. The full-day Kohala charters include a full lunch and soft drinks. We like to offer a variety of ocean activities for your pleasure as well. Fishing rods and tackle are always available. Complimentary snorkel equipment, sea hammocks, and boogie boards are standard on every private charter. GoPro rentals can be provided, and for those extra special occasions, we offer a wonderful collection of special experiences.
