Coming Soon Operating for 11 Years Sail Into Hawaii's Past
About Us

Island Sails - Princeville Resort, Kauai

Island Sails is a grass roots operation, which was designed around a lifestyle typical to beautiful Hawaii. Growing up on these islands, it seemed we spent more time at the beach and in the ocean, then we did at home.

 If we weren't surfing, we were fishing or messing around in the water. Over the years it seemed natural that the ocean became a major influence in our lives, until at some point it became our life. It's like the quality of the day depended on it! Island Sails' recipe for sucess comes from these experiences. 

All of Island Sails' tours and programs reflect our love of the ocean. It's 45 foot Traditional Hawaii Sailing Cone "Kuupaaloa", allows us to share a piece of Hawaii's culture with you and your entire family everyday, while here on Kauai. Thier goal is to provide culturally rich "eco-tours", fit for the whole family. Through education we hope to teach respect for the enviorment and history, while having fun on beautiful Hanalei Bay.

Island Sails for the past eight years have been committed to providing quality cultural and educational tours in Hanalei. We feel that our guests deserve the best and that is our goal, to provide the best cultural activity we can.

Partners Trevor Cabell and Travis Bonnel were born and raised in Hawaii.



"For us Island Sails is an extention of a lifestyle. Our relationship with the ocean and Hawaii's culture is what we take pride in. We hope we can share some of the ocean activities that we love with you while here on Kauai." - Trevor Cabell, Owner

Early Morning Sail

The calm waters of the morning offer excellent coral reef snorkeling and easy sailing in the morning light. If your able to choose one of our four tours this is the one. Did we mention this is the best time to see dolphins and turtles!

Mid-Morning Sail

Enjoy the late morning in Hanalei bay while the wind picks up as we venture out side of the bay and are able to get a taste of the true open ocean. We would call this sail moderate.



Afternoon Sail

This is for the true sailors who can handle a little spray in their face. Our destination is 5 miles off shore. From there the view of Kauai's north shore is to die for. From there we'll surf our way back into the Hanalei Bay. Oh, did we mention that this is the time we catch most if our fish. Fishermen come prepared. That is with your luck of course!



Romantic Hanalei Sail

This beautiful sunset sail aboard our Hawaiian Sailing Canoe is a true treat. In the calm of the late afternoon waters, we'll cruise the bay and watch the colors begin to change as the sun sets. If you like rainbows this is the sail where you will see what makes Hanalei so special!



Honeymoon Sunset Sail

We cater to small groups and personalized charters. This is a unique experience where you and your loved one's can enjoy Hanalei on your own time. Swim, fish, surf, sail, snorkel or just relax. You create the mood that's right for you.
