About Our Area

Maile sails out of Kawaihae Harbor, located on the Kohala

Coast of the Big Island. The driest area in all of the islands,

and known to the Hawaiians as the place of five mountains,

it is an area of rugged beauty. With turquoise water, and in

the lee of the islands, it is a treat to sail here.


Leaving the harbor feels as though we’ve entered another

world – peaceful and quiet, with beauty all around. We might

see dolphins as we leave the harbor, turtles as we snorkel,

and whales as we sail along.

Thank you! Our sail on Maile was the best part of our trip to Hawaii, which is saying a lot! And, one of the best trips we’ve ever had. We had so much fun!”
