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.

Traveler Tips

I was slightly anxious about boarding the boat from the beach, but staff made it easy.
Make sure to have a Maui Mule, they are phenomenal.
just be warned the booze is not top shelf, or even medium shelf, but they keep it flowing and they will mix whatever you want and there are no limits.

Gorgeous whale watching cruise on complete with food and beverage
Jacqueline_J, Mar 2023
This cruise was a fantastic way to whale watch, enjoy the sunset, and experience a vacation Maui evening. The crew was incredible. Attentive, fun, and very professional. Great music playlist, free flowing drinks and a genuine intent to make sure each guest was involved and having fun. Would recommend highly and would go again on this specific evening cruise!! We were seeing so many whales the crew even stayed out a bit late as crew and guests alike were enjoying the evening so much! 11/10!!

Greg_B, Feb 2023
Fun time on a bit smaller ship which I like. Much better than the cattle call big ships. Great crew focused on making sure everyone had plenty to drink and eat while having a good time. Lots of whales and dolphins were observed as well!
We would do it again

Great crew! Seas were rough that day & crew made sure everyone was comfortable. Unfortunately the whale sightings were few but we did see a lot of porpoises!
Wonderful evening and lots of whales!

Fun & relaxed. Friendly crew- saw lots of whale activity! Appetizers were delicious & generous bar! Loved it all!
Lovely, but not high-quality liquor
Mike_M, Feb 2023
Was told at booking that could byob, but then informed day-of that this was not permitted. Cocktails were acceptable, but bar could have certainly been improved with options of greater quality.
Couldn’t be any better!
Vicki_W, Feb 2023
The best! Unbelievable numerous Whale sightings! Great crew, food and drinks. A perfect night for our family of nine.
Well worth it!
Barry_C, Feb 2023
It was so worth it! The crew, food, views, and drinks were amazing! We were able to see many whales. We had a great time. Our initial trip was cancelled due to winds and they called us to get it rebooked. There isn’t one negative thing I would say. It was great!
