The 90-minute TradeWind sails depart at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. throughout the week, leaving from the sands of Waikiki Beach. From there, passengers can purchase Mai Tais, soft drinks, champagne, wine, juices, and water for $3–$5, and then sit back and sunbathe, listen to the sound system’s island tunes on a Bose sound system, or watch for a glimpse of dolphins, turtles, whales or flying fish.

Though they both prize the feeling of wind in their sails, there's no way that 15th-century mariners ever had as much fun as the crew of Maita'i Catamaran. Maita'i's leisurely voyages begin from Waikiki Beach, where passengers board the 44-foot, twin-hulled catamaran before breezes catch the specially designed wing mast and carry the boat out onto the water. As the vessel glides across the crystalline waves, the gregarious crew invites guests to relax with beer, champagne, or mai tais as they soak in the sun and sea breezes to a soundtrack of catchy island melodies. For slightly more immersive oceanic experiences, Maita'i Catamaran also leads snorkeling excursions where passengers can swim amid butterflyfish and parrotfish and challenge humuhumunukunukuapua'a fish to spelling contests.
