About Kai Kanani

South Maui's Luxury Catamaran

Family Owned & Operated

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.

Calling South Maui "Home"

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. And 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.

All Fresh, All From Maui

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.
