Hawaii Sailing Adventures
Dating back for hundreds of years, the Hawaiian Islands and Hawaiian people have a storied history with sailing and navigating the oceans. The earliest arrivals of inhabitants to the islands came via voyaging canoe, using only the stars and trade winds to navigate the Pacific Ocean, ultimately landing at the undiscovered island chain that is now Hawaii.
Today, sailing to Hawaii is a little different, and navigating the open ocean is not solely dependent on the stars and trade winds. GPS along makes getting to the islands far easier, and significantly shorter. Though there are still boats, like the Hokulea, that use traditional methods to sail the world, most boats utilize the technology that is available to them.
Sailing is still a big part of day to day life in Hawaii, and visitors to the islands can take part in this fun activity. Each island offers great options for sailing adventures, with incredible views of the islands and an all-around fun time highlight time at sea. Imagine, spending the first few days of your trip strolling Waikiki Beach, with Diamond Head in near site, then taking a sailing adventure along the coast and getting another view of the landmark. Diamond Head should be seen from the sea at least once, giving the view that welcomed so many to the island of Oahu for so many years.
Sailing is as storied as any other activity in Hawaii, even surfing, and time spent at sea is always cherished. So whether you are taking a sunset sail and enjoying a cocktail, or sailing along Kauai’s Na Pali Coast and stopping for visits to hidden beaches and snorkeling sites, you’ll be able to enjoy one of the oldest traditions in Hawaii.
Each island offers great sailing adventures, and gives you a chance to connect with the earliest residents of the Hawaiian Islands. During any sailing trip, you’ll see the island from an entirely new perspective, and find sites that you cannot see from land. The islands of Hawaii are stunning from the sea, and there is something very special about a Hawaii Sailing Adventure.
