Captains Holly & Katie 

Our Story 

 Hi there!  Thanks for visiting our website.

Mahalo Sailing is a culmination of a lifetime of travel, sailing and adventure.  Two lives, actually.  My daughter Katie and I have been fortunate to be able to visit some amazing places on our planet and we just love sharing them with people like you.  We strive to put together trips that most people wouldn’t do on their own. We specialize in sailing, motor yachting, eco-tourism and charters; as well as yacht deliveries around the world.  At least one of is on every trip as Captain.

Katie and I both grew up as boat kids, meaning our parents had boats when we were born and we didn’t have a life without water and boats as part of our daily experience.  I remember steering our day sailor at three years old and Katie was rowing on her own at three.  It’s in our bones.  It’s who we are.  We are both licensed Captains.

Our adventures range in size from one to ten+ boats and from 6 to 80+ guests. On our multi-boat trips, we have a cadre of professional (and fun) female USCG Licensed Captains and Mates that we work with to ensure that you have a safe and fabulous experience.  There is no experience required to join us and you are not required to help work the boat. While we don’t teach sailing classes or courses on trips, we encourage experienced sailors to join us to fine tune their skills.  Any of our crews can help you improve and grow. It’s ok to just zone out and relax and we are happy to run the boats so you can chill.

In addition to an amazing on the water experience, we also arrange sightseeing and land excursions so that you experience the local beauty and customs of each location.  The best part of traveling with us is experiencing the world through all of your senses; the water, the sounds of the waves lapping at the boat, the exquisite tastes of food around the world, the sounds of laughter and conversations had as we explore new places together, the sight of sun setting and rising over the ocean and distant shores.  We firmly believe travel makes for a better person with a better understand of our world and the fragile condition of our planet.  Travel is by far, the most meaningful gift you can give.  Why not plan a meaningful family vacation experience?  Kids love being on boats!

Check out our trips and see which one fits your interest and your schedule, then call or email to reserve your spot.  If you don't see what you're looking for, let us know.  We can do just about any type of trip, on any type of boat, anywhere in the world for 1 to 100 people.  Bring it on!

At Mahalo Sailing we make sure your sailing vacation is all you've ever dreamed of... and more!  Join us...
