Kona Tradewind Sightseeing Sail
Departing from Kona’s Honokohau Harbor on the Big Island of Hawaii
Let our captain and crew make your trip most enjoyable, and memorable as you sail along the crystal blue waters of Kona. Enjoy fun, sun and the wonderful ocean breeze and sights of the Kona coastline on the graceful sailing catamaran Honi Olani.
Sail past the western slopes of the Hualālai volcano as it meets the ocean. Relax and enjoy a perspective you can only get at sea, as the waves crash over the black lava rocks. The weather on this side of the island is almost always dry and sunny. Includes soda, juice and water.
Our 53 foot, 49 passenger sailing catamaran “Honi Olani” that is safe for all ages with conveniences that include restrooms, plenty of shade and ample seating.
Hawaii Nautical is one of Hawaii’s largest ocean-activity providers, with a fleet of vessels island-wide serving many harbors across Oahu and the Big Island. We believe in delivering service, safety, and the spirit of Aloha.
We respect the ocean and the ecosystem; we follow strict guidelines so that all marine mammals and wildlife are protected. And we honor the host-culture and support the local communities in which we operate.
We want the natural environment you enjoy today to be here tomorrow, and for every tomorrow after.
That’s why we are Hawaii’s first Dolphin Smart-recognized operator. NOAA’s Dolphin Smart educates guests about dolphin conservation and harassment and advises not to seek activities that pursue close interactions like swimming with dolphins in Hawaii in the wild.
We also follow the guidelines of the Coral Reef Alliance, to establish lasting change and promote coral reef health around the world. That includes sustainable practices — such as no fish-feeding. Coral conservation aims to save these valuable ecosystems, unite communities and preserve cultural identity.
We’ve been wowing guests of all ages for decades in Hawaii. While there’s lots of excitement around our activities, we practice the highest level of safety in everything we do. We treat guests like ohana, the Hawaiian word for family that permeates everything we do.
