Sailboat. Sunshine. Salt water. Snorkeling. Snacks.

If that sounds like a recipe for your personal paradise, Maui Custom Charters should most definitely be your next great adventure on the Valley Isle.

private Maui charters

For those who want to try something a little different, Maui Custom Charters offers private whale-watching tours during winter months, as well as sunset tours, interisland tours, and sunrise-to-sunset tours for the ultra adventurous. There is plenty of room to spread out once aboard, and we could easily (and happily) spend an evening aboard the S/V Nova (or S/V Artemis) if given the opportunity. Highly recommended!


Service Details

I’ve been on many boat tours on Maui, but I’ve gotten the chance to sit and talk story with the Captain. Captain Anna, who is from Maui, and has over 15 years of experience on the water and tons of fascinating stories, is truly one of the kindest, most helpful, friendly, and easy-going people I’ve met on Maui. What a wonderful perk aboard a private sailing tour!

In addition, Captain Makana our first mate, who is also from Maui, was really helpful in assisting with sailing duties, leading our snorkeling adventure, and preparing food and beverages throughout the day. Really nice guy with an interesting background, and we simply could not have asked for better service from these two captains. Mahalo, Anna and Makana!


Contact Info

After a full tour experience aboard the S/V Nova, we highly recommend Maui Custom Charters as a great option for small wedding parties, groups of friends, and close family members looking for a truly unique and custom experience on the ocean. Sailing is a ton of fun, and you can’t beat the views on Maui!
