Right from the start the Captain and crew were so welcoming. The views of the water and mountains were like a painting. The drinks never stop once we left the harbor. And the Food was exceptional for this type of trip. The entertainment was fabulous. We absolutely loved the time we spent on this cruise. Can't wait to come back in the future and do it again.

The people were so friendly and helpful. The cruise was fabulous and we were taken to beautiful places. The food was more than I expected or could ask for. Great tour.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Aloha and Mahalo for joining us and sharing your experience. I’m happy you had a fabulous time aboard the Maui Sunset Luau Dinner Cruise. Our guests often are surprised at the quality of the food we prepare for this cruise at our own commercial kitchen just minutes from the harbor. Chef Tania’s recipes and sauces are so delicious. Chef Troy has been preparing our time tested fall off the bone baby back ribs alongside his roasted chicken marinated in an Asian citron sauce for years now, to the delight of our guests. My friendly crew are the best in the business and we pride ourselves in providing an unmatched level of exceptional service.

Aloha, I am so proud of my team. They are the very best in the business at what they do, because they love this amazing island and are passionate to share their knowledge with our guests. Nothing compares to experiencing the local culture and Aloha Spirit, shared. through music and dance, cruising along the majestic coast. Your dinner is prepared with care at our own commercial kitchen, just minutes from the harbor. We appreciate your kind words and hope to see you again.
Excellent food, great entertainment and great atmosphere
Bessem_O, Jul 2023
The sunset cruise was excellent! The captain and crew were very friendly and kind. The atmosphere was light and warm. The food was excellent, we especially loved the coconut sweet potatoes. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. We loved the hula dancers and the live music performances. I highly recommend the Pride of Maui dinner cruise. Definitely one of the highlights of our Maui vacation
Response from Host, Jul 2023
We love to be the highlight of your vacation on Maui. Our food is delicious because it is prepared in our own commercial kitchen just minutes from the harbor, following chef Tania’s time tested wonderful sauces, and recipes. I’m so pleased that you loved the live presentation of Hawaiian music and hula performed by Kekoa, Ola and the beautiful graceful Naiah, whose passion for their culture is expressed in an intimate setting aboard our spacious and stable vessel, cruising along the majestic Maui coast. Our crew is likewise dedicated to providing an unmatched level of guest service with memories not soon forgotten. I’m so proud of our team and appreciate your 5 star review!
Best crew in Maui
Troy_H, Jul 2023
The crew was so amazing on the pride of maui. They were always so hopeful and caring. The hula dancers were such great people. We would definetly do this again. The food was delicious. Drinks, and dessert:) thank you so much for the wonderful evening we had.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Aloha and thank you for sharing your kind words about our team and the wonderful time you had aboard our Maui Sunset Luau Dinner Cruise. Guests like you really appreciate the opportunity to experience the beauty of Hawaiian culture shared by Kekoa, Ola and Anaiah, through Polynesian dance and music, in an intimate setting, out on the ocean, aboard our spacious and stable vessel, while enjoying delicious food and an open premium bar. My crew is second to none, as they strive to provide an unsurpassed level of guest service.
Poor experience save your money. Need to take luau out of the ad and just say Dinner Cruise.
Timothy_N, Jun 2023
The only thing good about the experience was the food. Brought our granddaughter to Hawaii and thought this would be a different experience but the advertising is false there is no luau. Defiantly not worth the money. The sunset was beautiful, but we could have seen that anywhere for free.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Some folks are just this way. I am sorry that you didn't appreciate the unique Hawaiian cultural experience of beautiful hula and song, presented live, in an intimate setting, aboard Maui's largest, stable and most comfortable Maxi-Power Catamaran, cruising along the majestic coast, enjoying delicious food, open premium bar, out on the ocean, in the care of our expert crew. The land-based resort style Luau's have their place, and is what some folks should stick to, particularly if blue drinks with umbrellas and young men and women dancing on a loud stage is what you are looking for. Our approach is for you to experience the local culture in a much more intimate and meaningful way. Fortunately, 99% of our guests truly appreciate the experience.
No accessibility if you cannot walk
Beverly_C, Jun 2023
Was not allowed on board as it was not wheelchair accessible So sad that the aviator said no problem but at time of boarding was not allowed
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Aloha, it is unfortunate that you were misinformed by the person who sold you the tour. We most certainly would have accommodated you were it safe to do so. I’m not sure why you were misinformed, since Viator has been selling our tour for many years, and this is the first time a guest like yourself has showed up at the boat expecting our vessel to be equipped with facilities to accommodate wheelchair accessibility. Your safety is our number one priority and there was no way for us to safely get you on and off the vessel. We are sorry for your disappointment and have followed up with Viator to remind them that the harbor facility we operate from is not equipped to accommodate wheelchairs.
This was a great dinner...
Heather_V, Jun 2023
This was a great dinner cruise on the water. Very family friendly and the service and entertainment was awesome.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Aloha and thank you for giving our Maui Sunset Luau Dinner Cruise 5 stars. We are fortunate to work with some of the most talented and passionate artists and entertainers on Maui. Kekoa, Naia and Ola are passionate about sharing their local culture through Polynesian dance and Hawaiian music. Our guests love the cultural immersion and opportunity to experience Hawaiian hula and live music in an intimate setting.
So much fun!!!
Jennifer_L, Jun 2023
We had to absolute best time on the Pride of Maui dinner cruise! The entire staff was so friendly and kind, the luau was fantastic and the food was phenomenal! We has so much fun that we are definitely adding this to our must do again list if we are ever back in Maui. A 5-star experience for sure and we highly recommend this cruise!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Aloha and thank you for your 5 star praise of our Maui Sunset Luau Dinner Cruise. Chef Tania’s recipes have stood the test of time. After decades of refinement, her sauces and pairing of flavors guarantee an exceptional meal with plenty to eat. We believe that even aboard a boat the food should be delicious. That is why it is freshly prepared with consistent care, by Troy and his team at our own commercial kitchen just minutes from the harbor. This ensures your dinner is fresh and delicious. Our premium open bar features nice wines from NAPA, top shelf spirits, and ice cold micro-brewed local beer. Our bartenders will even whip up your favorite frozen beverage or a wonderful mai-tai. It’s the quality and attention to detail that our guests appreciate. Though my amazing team is what truly separates us from all the others.
Tanya_L, Jun 2023
Everything about this was amazing! The food and drinks were delicious, (and I might be the worlds pickiest eater) the people were so friendly and kind and the luau was moving. All in all definitely worth experiencing!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you for appreciating everything you experienced aboard our Maui Sunset Luau Dinner Cruise. Kekoa, Naia and Ola do a wonderful job sharing their passion for their local culture, through Hawaiian and Polynesian dance and song. Chef Tania, Troy and the team at our kitchen will be pleased to hear that despite being a picky eater, you found their recipes and food to be delicious. Glad you enjoyed the premium open bar and thank you for the 5 stars!!
Great time!

Monica_C, Jun 2023
Such an amazing experience and the service was top notch! Loved sharing this experience with my family and definitely recommending to anyone visiting Maui in the future. You will have a great experience and time🩷
Very enjoyable sunset cruise!
Leilani_L, Jun 2023
We opted for this instead of a Luau, and we are so happy we did! It was such a lovely experience. Everything from the staff, to the the food and the show and of course the subset, were wonderful! Everyone was super friendly and truly looked like they enjoyed doing what they were doing. Kemo was great on the Ukulele and his wife was beautiful doing the hula. Would definitely do this again!
Wonderful Memory!
