We made our first passage to Hawaii in 2009 while on our way from Seattle to Japan. We returned to Hawaii in 2011 when we left Japan and have been spending most winters cruising Hawaii and then running back to Seattle or Alaska for the summer cruising season. In 2018, we gunk-holed over 1600nm, visiting almost every island in Hawaii. Our friend Bill Leary has posted a cruising guide online called “Noodles Notes”, a must for anyone cruising the Hawaiian Islands.
