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.

Smooth sailing!
Roberta_B, Nov 2023
It was a very relaxing experience smooth sailing and amazing crew. Carrie, Mitch and Travis made sure it was a smooth experience even though there were choppy waters. They were very attentive on drink refills, and the music and food was great. Super amazing time. We felt safe and relaxed through the entire ride. Onboarding and off boarding was easy. We even saw a couple early arriving whales ! Highly recommend this experience!
The best way to experience the Maui sunset!
Christopher_B, Nov 2023
What an amazing experience! The captain & crew (Nick, Mario, Colt) were fantastic. They offered a wide array of adult beverages (including a nice selection of beers) and a tasty variety of appetizers, which included BBQ sliders. During our sail, we were escorted by dolphins and also saw Malolo (flying fish) nearby. This was one of the most memorable experiences during our week long trip to Maui!
Highly recommend

Great time!

Sea Maui Sunset Cruise!
Carleen_M, Nov 2023
Meeting new people from all area of the world! Even though it was extremely windy out, the cruise was still very tolerable and enjoyable! The drinks we awesome along with the “snacks” that they supplied. The scenery was picturesque with the ocean being a dark blue, clouds in the sky, the mountains in the background and the sky scape was phenomenal. The sun glistening on the ocean waters was shimmering. I totally missed getting photos of the sunset because I was eating my snack and then disappeared behind another island. Totally recommend this cruise. Crew was Carrie, Cole and Nava! One thing I recommend to Viator is to change the address. It is not the correct one that was on my confirmation.
Not fun at all.
Jocelyn_N, Sep 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

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.
