Our Story

Waikiki Sailing Company

Waikiki Sailing Company was built in 1977 by William Brown in Honolulu, Hawaii. Inspired by his father — Waikiki beach boy and surfing, sailing, and soaring legend Woody Brown, who built the very first modern day catamaran (Manu Kai) — William decided to build a boat of his own. Standing 32 feet long and 16 feet wide, the Mana Kai accommodates up to 26 passengers. Our famous Hawaiian Rainbow sail, lounge net, and pleasant sound system all add to your sailing pleasure. We are an environmentally-friendly, USCG certified vessel. Our catamaran is located on Waikiki Beach in front of the world-famous Duke Statue and on the beachfront of the Hyatt Regency Hotels. Reservations are welcome online, by phone, or walk-up (subject to availability). Come join us on your next sailing experience an explore Waikiki in style!
