We’re so excited to sail with you! Before that happens, we’re making a ton of awesome upgrades to Blue Planet to make her Hawai’i’s premier luxury sailing yacht.

We purchased the boat in June of 2021 and expect renovations and upgrades will last through Fall 2022 for a launch date this Fall. Until then, follow along with our renovation journey on Instagram and YouTube.

We work on a first-come, first-serve basis and only take on a limited number of private charters per month.Most charters are booked 2-4 weeks in advance, so we encourage you to reach out even if you’re still weighing your options. Sadly we cannot hold dates for you without receiving the booking retainer and signing the contract. You can always add services as your sailing date gets closer. Please note that a 7.412% sales tax and credit card processing fee are added to all packages.
