The Beach-Loading Pros
South Maui has a unique beauty unlike anywhere else on the island. For a boat company, one very unique feature: there are no boat harbors.
Because of this, Kai Kanani’s passengers “beach-load,” walking through the surf and up on to our gorgeous 65-foot catamaran. Our crew are experts at beach-loading, taking pride in our ability to get everyone of our guests on board as dry and safe as possible for your upcoming tour.
For us, it’s part of the adventure! So come prepared to get a little wet while getting on-board. Then sit back and relax while our crew takes care of your every need during your adventure in Maui. Kai Kanani Sailing Charters staff is here to help you and make your adventure on the Kai Kanani II memorable, safe & fun. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns about any part of your excursion with us or any other part of your Maui vacation. We look forward to seeing you out on the water and we’ll see you on-board!
What shoes should you wear? We suggest sandals or flip-flops, shoes that are easily removed as you walk across the beach barefoot. Once on board, you’re welcome to wear your sandals or whatever type of shoe you’re comfortable in.

Over 1,000 5-Star Reviews on TripAdvisor
We are a Native Hawaiian family-owned, 30-year-old company committed to the quality of your experience in our marine sanctuary. South Maui and the Wailea-Makena area are prized for their beautiful beaches, calm and clear emerald-blue waters, and near-perfect weather year-round. We gratefully acknowledge our place as caretakers and interpreters of this South Maui paradise we call home.
We love what we do and we’re thankful for how lucky we are. We have amazing marine life, fresh local produce, beautiful rainbows, gorgeous sunsets, the ever so gracious and returning whales every year during winter, and Ohana (Family). We treat each other with Aloha and respect and that is what keeps Maui such an amazing and beautiful place.
The Kai Kanani II is the only commercial boat that lives in South Maui, moored off of Maluaka Beach in Makena. Seven days-a-week, she takes passengers on the short cruise out to Molokini Crater, just 3 miles away, to swim and play in the clearest water in all of Hawaii. Five nights-a-week, Kai Kanani II raises her sails, taking advantage of our luxurious afternoon trade winds, with our Adventure Sunset Sail. These trips and other special offerings are all crewed by the best group of men and women to grace the blue channels of Maui County. They will help create some of the best adventure memories you’ll ever have during your Maui tours.
We feature fresh island foods, all curated by Wailea’s The Market, a chef-inspired coffee and food shop that specializes in ingredients that are locally-sourced and house-cured. Our bar features Maui’s Ocean Organic Vodka, Kula Rum and wine’s from MauiWine in Ulupalakua. Kai Kanani’s tours are saturated in local experience and cuisine so that you go away feeling connected and refreshed.
