What To Expect

Head to Kaanapali Beach in the late afternoon where you board a beach-loading catamaran for your Hawaiian sunset cruise.

Grab a handcrafted cocktail from the premium bar and snack on some “pupus” (appetizers) as you set sail for one of mother nature’s finest shows, Maui’s daily sunset. As you sail the waters near the island’s western shore, keep your eyes peeled for dolphins and the nearby islands of Lanai, Molokai, and Kahoolawe. Assuming the weather is good, be treated to a postcard-perfect sunset display of pink, purple, orange, and red light.

Celebrate your wonderful excursion on the water with a couple more snacks and drinks from the unlimited bar before heading back into the beach.

Not fun at all.
Jocelyn_N, Sept 2023
We drove there and wasted gas. The place was closed. Would like a phone call letting us now that they we're not open. I try calling and just got voice mail. Trying to get a refund now.
Great Way To End A Vacation!

Captain Sydney made us feel safe and her crew (also Captains) made it a fun and relaxing cruise. We food and the company of the other guest was perfect. We can’t wait to do it again!!!
Sunset Cruise
Joan_R, Jul 2023
The trip was great and the crew Cole, Andrea and Carrie were phenomenal. Service was top notch. Food was just ok but more variety of alcohol mixes is needed. Would recommend and go again.
Beautiful views, fun night out, fun with friends or couples
Allison_H, Jul 2023
Amazing experience. The crew was really fun and accommodating. The views were gorgeous and sunset was beautiful! Also, they made fun cocktails for us. We sat on the bean bags on the netting up front and that was the best seat in the house for sure. Highly recommend!!
Awesome Sunset Cruise

JILLIAN_O, Jul 2023
The crew was great! The water was a little rough so we ended up getting pretty wet but laughed through the entire trip! We had a great time. The drinking were flowing and the food was delicious! I would highly recommend and if I am back in Maui I would definitely do it again!
Ivannia_P, Jul 2023
The crew was friendly, the boat was not crowded and had lots of seating areas for the guests. The drinks were really good and the appetizers were delicious and filling. I recommend this sunset cruise!!!
Sunset & Drinks - Perfection!
mlgeary10, Jul 2023
Great experience! Crew was amazing - drinks were always coming! Appetizers were great (chicken, mozzarella&tomato skewers, coleslaw, little sandwiches). Views of the sunset were gorgeous! Try to get in the line early to get first dibs on the spot in the boat!
Staff were wonderful and...
Victoria_F, Jul 2023
Staff were wonderful and boat ride was very fun! The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is that I found it a little worrisome that as I was able to book the trip with a 2 year old and an infant, but was then very surprised to find out that are no infant life vests on board. At the introduction speech given before boarding, we were told Sea Maui is in contact with and under the guidance of the US Coast Guard, so again, not sure how that works. I’m glad I confirmed the situation prior to going on the cruise as we brought our own small child and infant life vests. Perhaps making that clear on the booking website, would be better.
Totally awesome adventure!
Caroline_H, Jul 2023
Went on the sunset cruise yesterday. The food, drinks, music, ride were all great! Would highly recommend this to everyone.

Beautiful sunset cruise
Allison_B, Jul 2023
The crew was wonderful and the boat ride was so fun. My kids had a great time sitting on the bean bags in front of the boat. The food was okay but would have been wonderful fresh.
