One of the most fun and effortless ways to get in the water is a sail off of Waikiki. Many catamarans launch from Waikiki, but this is our favorite of the “booze cruises.” It’s the least crowded and rowdy, and the drink selection is the best, with multiple Maui Brewing Co. brews and a decent island cocktail. The Sunset Sail is the most popular and festive, with an open bar, while the Tradewind Sail, which pushes off in the afternoon, is more mellow. The most romantic? The Fireworks Sail, which seemingly takes you right under the weekly Friday-night fireworks show.
