"Sunset (BYOB) Sail on Ocean Spirit"

This was a great way to end a week in Maui. The sailing was great and views of the sunset and island unmatched. The ukulele music was so relaxing and the food was good. My boys and I love to sail, so this was more about being on the water than the drinks. Perfect trip.
