We depart from Lahaina Harbor at around 10 am (occasionally we offer a sunrise departure at 6:30am) and start your day with an island style breakfast of Mom's homemade cinnamon rolls, coffee, juice and seasonal fruit. Deli snacks are also served on-board during the one and a half hour sail to this very special island (10am departure only).
Because we are the only company with permission to bring guests to Hulopo‘e Marine preserve (Voted the #1 beach in America by Dr. Beach), we pay close attention to both your safety and comfort. Our Trilogy crew, as well as our island born Beach Boys, are trained in CPR and First Aid, and are experts at insuring your safety in and out of the water. Besides swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, beach volleyball, and the increasingly popular SNUBA, we also offer a guided tour of Lana‘i's historic plantation town narrated by island born and raised Hawaiian Cultural Guides. Our Kiawe wood BBQ dinner, served at the Hale O Manele over looking Manele Bay, is considered by many to be one of the best in Hawai‘i!
The return sail to Maui can be restful and relaxing, or wet & wild, but it is always safe and lots of fun. So whether you are a sunrise or sunset kind-of-person, many of our guests write to tell us that Discovering Lana‘i with Trilogy was the highlight of their whole vacation! So, discover for yourself why Trilogy has been chosen the #1 sailing company on Maui for over 35 years!
Bring your swimsuit, towel, and non-aersol sun protection. You may want a light jacket or sweatshirt and we recommend wearing deck shoes or rubber-soled shoes.
