Owner description: Experience luxury aboard Island Star, a beautiful 60′ Classic Sailing Yacht. The next anchorage in your Island Paradise is always within sight and invariably as beautiful as the last. Whatever your desires, snorkeling, scuba, sailing Island Star will provide the vacation on a lifetime. The combination of gentle trade winds and pristine warm waters makes Maui the ideal place on earth to create a memorable charter adventure. Where do you want to go? Just want a romantic sunset sail with your sweetheart? Or do you want to escape and adventure around all of the islands! Our experienced crew is eager to indulge your wishes and make it a memorable vacation. All of our trips involve snorkeling Maui’s exquisite reefs and searching for dolphins (and whales when in season). We encourage all our guests to get involved with the sailing aspect of our trips and allow everyone helm time if desired. Fishing lines are always out in hopes of fresh catch. Scuba or Snuba diving are also available with proper notice. We have a complete galley on board where we have the ability to prepare scrumptious lunches such as a hot BBQ, a gourmet deli-style lunch, or fresh island grilled fish. All of our crew are current in First Aid and C.P.R. as well as being Coast Guard licensed captains.

We enjoyed a really great trip on Island Star. Mike and John were fabulous hosts who could not do enough to ensure we had a great experience both on board but also snorkelling. Mike led our children on a snorkelling tour, going out of his way to point out fish and other sea life. The highlight was a close encounter with an octopus which our children were thrilled about. It is a pretty boat for a relaxing sail. Although the wind was occasionally very strong - 35 knots gusting 40! A thrill with some welcome sea spray.

We have sailed on the Island Star on numerous occasions during our visits to Maui. Today was the absolute best whale watching experience ever. We were in a pod of about 30+ whales all around and under our boat. Thanks to Captain Mike and First Mate John who made this trip the most incredible ever.

Amazing sailing adventure around the back of Molokini. Captain Morgan and Nick were great the whole trip. We had fresh fruit, banana bread, caesar wraps and sushi all made right on the boat. To cap it off, we had a very rare snorkeling trip around the back of Molokini. If you're looking to charter a boat in Maui, look no further than Island Star.

This day could not have been more perfect! Morgan and his crew were fabulous! The whale watching was a once-in-a-lifetime experience! We stopped to snorkel with a few sea turtles, beautifully colored fish and caves of coral. During the day we were provided fabulous morning snacks of fresh fruit and juices, then a barbecue for lunch. It was a grand day had by all!

Just returned from a "Girls Trip" in Maui, which included a 2-hour sail aboard the Island Star as one of our excursions.
The crew was absolutely fabulous! They were attentive to all of the passengers, and made sure everyone was enjoying their time out on the sea. I especially appreciated the fact that they took the time to make sure all the younger girls aboard (ages 10 and 8) had fun as well, acting as captain and pirates and raising the Jolly Roger during our sail.
Appetizers prepared were top-notch. No better way to relax and enjoy some time in Hawaii! Will return with my husband to enjoy another cruise with this company!!
