Letter from Bob

Aloha, my Name is Bob, also called Captain Sundown. I am one who likes to run my own boat. I think I’m the last one left doing such on Kauai. My crew are my sons and their friends. My daughter handles all the reservations and emails.

Even I can hardly believe anyone could be so blessed as to make a living this way. In Hanalei, on a sailing cat designed and built for my backyard.

It’s a big ocean……..just ask. I promise a day on the water you won’t soon forget.

As a matter of fact, it is so real that there are those who remember it forever just because it is so natural. I sail for real, especially on the day run. The Sunset tour is toned down a bit so you have a romantic evening.

God Bless,
Capt. Bob
