Maui To Molokai Downwind Run

The four of us met the boat captain at Mala Wharf and loaded our stand up paddle boards and a canoe onto the boat racks for a downwind run. The captain took us up to Honolua Bay where we unloaded and started our 27 mile adventure. The wind was gusting up to 45mph and we caught countless glides all the way to Kaunakakai Harbor on Molokai.

One of Maui’s best downwind runs when conditions are right. The Kihei run is known for it’s very long glides and easy connections. Kihei runs are also known to have unpredictable winds that can change directions during the run making it very dangerous. The wind was blowing 20-25mph and from the right direction for the entire run on this day.
