About Us


Maita'i is a Tahitian word meaning "excellence".  You'll call it fun.


The amazing Maita'i Catamaran is an ocean adventure, sight-seeing tour and party all in one. This "state of the art", twin hulled, 45 foot catamaran seats 49 passengers comfortably. United States Coast Guard inspected and certified, the Maita'i is ultra-safe and a great time for the entire family.

The front boarding ladder makes getting on easy right from the beach. From there, just kick back, have a Mai Tai, and listen to island rhythms from the CD sound system. And don't worry, there's also a bathroom facility right on board. The best feature though, would have to be the Maita'i crew. They're technically outstanding, and personally entertaining. If you want to laugh your #&! off and have a good time, this is your cat!

The Maita'i TradeWind sails are offered at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm. The wind and waves rush by on this unique ninety minute sail. The trade winds provide the backdrop as Maita'i surfs the swells off Waikiki. Mai Tais, beer, champagne, wine, juices and soft drinks from our bar are available for purchase onboard.

Maita'i's Sunset Mai Tai sail is at 5:00 pm and the Mahina Moonlight sail is at 7:00 pm. What better way to to end the day! Barefoot board right on Waikiki Beach, then sail out through the surf line and leave the hustle and bustle of Waikiki behind. Sit back and enjoy Hawaii's beauty as you experience a true Hawaiian sunset. Beverages include Mai Tais, beer, champagne, wine, juices and soft drinks.
