Kauai Sunset Cruises and Sunset Sails
Kauai Sunset Sails are a peaceful and romantic way to spend an evening.
Of all the evening activities or Kauai activities in general, perhaps the most romantic are the Kauai sunset cruises, Kauai sunset sails, the so called Kauai booze cruises or Kauai cocktail cruises.
Kauai is uniquely suited to be a great location to enjoy a romantic sunset sail particularly if you choose to take one that sails along the remarkable Na Pali Coastline.
- The Na Pali coastline on Kauai is certainly a popular destination for many sunset sail tours. This uniquely beautiful and uninhabited setting is one of the most renown coastlines anywhere on the planet. Many of the Hollywood movies you've seen back home have been filmed here and your vantage point from the sea is the only way this coastline can be viewed other than from a helicopter or air tour. The rugged beauty of this area makes it an impossible location for roads of any sort so there are no vehicles producing noise or visual distractions and this makes your sunset cruise all the more special.
As I think back, some of my fondest moments in the islands bring up memories of sunset sails. The gentle lapping of the ocean against the sunset sail vessel, the sun's shimmering light casting a golden glow along the shoreline, the brilliant vivid colors painting all the passing clouds. With a cocktail in hand and the perfect person by your side these moments on your Kauai sunset sail will serve as fond memories of your island vacation.
A sunset sail or sunset cruise is a good call for any evening of your vacation but perhaps the very best time would be your last evening on the island for a fond farewell.
Tom's Tips - Kauai Sunset Sail
- Kauai sunset sails usually just serve cocktails, beer, wine and appetizers so they are a great way to start an evening with a wonderful dinner afterwards.
- Remember the "romance factor" of these Kauai sunset sails. These are not adventure cruises, these are soothing and relaxing moments spent on the ocean enjoying Kauai's unmatched scenery.
- Remember that the wave and ocean conditions will determine where you will be departing from on your Kauai sunset sail. In the summer months the best spots are on the northern shorelines and the winter months are usually best on Kauai's southern coasts.
Sunset sails on Blue Dolphin Cruises are among the most romantic and mesmerizing activities that can be experienced in the waters off Kauai. Depending upon the type of water conditions and the time of year you can experience one of Blue Dolphin's longer sunset sails of usually about three-and-a-half hours departing from Port Allen on the western shore and sailing north to the spectacular Na Pali Coast or experience a shorter two-hour sunset sail departing from Kauai's south side. Either sunset sail will provide you with the beauty and romance that the coastline of Kauai is so famous for. With delicious foods provided and a cocktail in hand you will experience the perfect ending to a perfect Kauai day.

The sunset sail on the Catamaran Kahanu is also considered to be their dinner cruise. While most sunset sails are just a couple of hours in duration the sunset sail offered by the Catamaran Kahanu is three-and-one-half to four hours in length. The departure point is Port Allen and depending upon the time of year and the weather conditions the boat will either travel north toward Na Pali or south toward Poipu. Whichever direction the Catamaran Kahanu goes however, you will be sure to experience the beauty of Kauai. The captain and crew are generally local Hawaiian and will be able to explain and discuss many aspects regarding the Hawaiian culture with you.

Kauai Sea Tours gives you a chance to include a Sunset Sail with a snorkel, all in one day. This Kauai sunset sail and snorkel by Kauai Sea Tours can actually be considered a two-for-one. These are certainly two activities you in all likelihood would love to do and doing them in this manner is a way to consolidate them in the same time slot and save money as well. Most of the rest of Hawaii offer simply a two-hour sunset sail but the folks at Kauai Sea Tours have broken the mold and provided a greater spectrum of activity for all to enjoy. The boat itself is a sixty-foot sailing catamaran called the Lucky Lady which is specifically suited for these waters. The tour location can vary depending upon the weather conditions. The Lucky Lady has two decks. The top observation deck is wonderful for checking out all there is to see from a higher vantage point and to also take advantage of the Hawaiian sun. The bottom deck serves as the service area for the evening buffet and Mai Tai cocktail service which also includes beer and wine. Two restrooms are conveniently provided as is a giant swim step, ladder entry and a water slide.

Kauai Sunset Cruises - Dinner Cruises and Sunset Sails off the coast of Kauai are different then on any other island. This is true because most of them offer the unparalleled views of the stunning NaPali Coastline. On other islands the dinner cruises are generally 2 hours in length. Not so on Kauai. The majority of tours depart from Port Allen on the southwest coast and the picturesque coastline venture is generally a 4 hour experience giving you plenty of time to soak in the majesty of the NaPali coast at sunset.
