Olga_B, Mar 2023
Terrible cheap dinner : free salad, cheap alcoholic cocktail and not tasty chicken. This is a vacation for retirees. everything is dirty, there is no romance. Waste money.
Do this one!
Tammy_B, Mar 2023
My kids and I had already done a dinner cruise on a catamaran boat and it was not what I was expecting. eating cold food sitting on the floor of a boat was not my expectation for the price I had paid. Then I saw this boat off shore at sunset and checked it out. This is what I was expecting for a nice dinner cruise! I booked it for the next night. Pros: The food was great (and hot). We got an actual table with chairs Live music was fun, interactive and entertaining. Whales seem to come alive this time of day and put on a real show for us. NO WATER BOARDING. You get on from an actual dock and don't get wet. Cons: I'm not a huge Mai Tai fan, but they had other drinks to choose from later. This is what you are expecting for a dinner cruise. It was the best time we had on any boat we have taking in Maui. The Captain was wonderful as were the crew. and I definitely recommend the mahi-mahi. Maybe with rice instead of the roasted potato though.

Melanie_M, Mar 2023
Staff were nice and sunset was beautiful. Food was subpar, DJ was horrible. There was no dance floor as advertised and music was easy listening 70s music. Definitely felt like a waste of money.

A Must Do
Christopher_C, Mar 2023
This was entirely magnificent. The food and service was great and the whales were putting on one heck of a show.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Perfect night
Pat_E, Mar 2023
The staff was awesome! Very attentive. The captain was so knowledgeable about the whales. Musician was great. But most memorable part of the trip was when they turned the lights off to see the stars
Dinner cruise for our honeymoon
Robert_W, Mar 2023
We went on a honeymoon cruise and had a great time! The food was delightful! We met some new people with great conversation. The music was outstanding. The only thing was the seating was very uncomfortable on the tush. Cushion seating would make it so much more comfortable and enjoyable
Great service, great food, great people
Kelsey_M, Mar 2023
Great service, great food, and great people! We saw multiple whales and a beautiful sunset. The captain and singer were a lot of fun with great personalities.

Highlight of the cruise was the whale watching experience. Beautiful rainbows and panoramic views were breathtaking. Captain Dave and the crew were wonderful. Had the best time!
Great cruise
Kenneth_W, Mar 2023
After we left the harbor we had a whale and her baby cruising along side the boat. Dinner was great.
Great time
Kaitlyn_L, Mar 2023
The captain was great, and so funny. He’s been doing this for along time, and was even able to track down some whales! Bonus! His staff was great and the Mahi-Mahi plate was delicious. Our group of 4 didn’t think it was worth what we paid in total, but if you have extra money to splurge, you’ll have a great time.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Mahalo for the great review!
Overall it was not to our expectations
Bahadur_D, Feb 2023

Great sunset dinner cruise
Steven_B, Feb 2023
We joined Captain Dave and his great crew for a 3 hr evening dinner cruise out of lahina. Captain and crew went out of their way to accommodate us and also found groups of humpbacks to view as we had a very nicely cooked prime rib dinner with drinks. The views back on the harbor were fantastic! I highly recommend this trip with this seasoned crew.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Mahalo for the great review, Steven! See you next time!
