Tours and Charters

Sail out of Wailoa River Boat Ramp in Hilo Bay on Hawaii Island. See beaches, schooner landing remains, waterfalls, sea cliffs, deserts, forests, ancient and historical lava flows, modern harbor works and shipping. Sunrise, sunset and night sails are possible as well as daytime sails.

Trips are a combination of sailing and paddling depending on the wind strength and direction as well as the interest, energy and enthusiasm of the guests. We will discuss the history, culture, geology and canoe sailing. Guests sit in seats in the hull while paddling. While sailing they may sit on the platform between the hulls.

Three-hour sailing trips with Captain Kiko on his double hull canoe are $125 per person for 4-6 people (or a minimum of $500 per trip). The canoe can seat up to six passengers. We will arrange departure time on booking. Call for details.

Call for prices on longer or overnight trips.
