Ope'ope Kohala i ka Makani

The Pleasant Wind of Kohala

Holoholo style means something along the lines of “just for fun” or “going out for leisures sake” and it’s the way we like to work. It means our charters are more laid back and informal, you’ll be treated like our cousin from the mainland. This means that your wants are important but if there’s a chance to go swim with a Whale Shark, we’ll go look for the shark. In the long run this is good for you too, because if the swell is pounding we aren’t going to shove you into murky water just to mark off a check list. So if you’re fine floating along without an agenda for a few hours go ahead and surrender to Hawaiian time.

Our fleet is regularly updated to offer the latest in safety, technology, and comfort. Passengers can choose from a selection of three modern boats, accommodating anywhere from two to 14 people. Our Big Island charters mean you have the entire boat for a more intimate and authentic sailing expedition. Personalized itineraries are available for honeymooners or couples.

Every trip includes snacks like chips and crack seed, local juice, cookies and fresh Big Island coffee with a continental breakfast or afternoon cake with most provided by local merchants.  Full-day Hawaii boat charters include a full lunch with soft drinks.

Experience the friendly side of Hawai’i from a locals vantage. It’s the best possible way to explore the coast of sunny Hawai’i. And Hawai’i & Sons Yacht Charters is the best possible place to get started.
