The "Kamanu" is Kona's only daily sailing vessel, a custom 36' catamaran built for speed and comfort. She's 22 feet wide, making for a large stable platform with an expansive "trampoline" or webbing net up forward for lying on. Soak in the sun and watch the ocean flow by you as you gaze through the net into the deep blue. Relax in the shaded open air cabin area and "talk story" with the captain and first mate.
The winds on the Kona Coast are generally in the 10-15 kt. range and are thermally generated with the heating of the land. We are protected from the strong "trade winds" that prevail over most areas of the state. Very little "white knuckle" sailing here!
The peace and serenity of real sailing is one of the reasons you're coming to Hawaii, right? Kick back, stretch out, and enjoy the calm protected waters that we sail over. If you have a large family or are coming over with a group, call for a private charter we are very affordable!
