When you think back on your moments on Maui years from now, a Maui dinner cruise may be the moment you remember most fondly.
Floating gently between the islands of Molokai, Maui, Lanai and Kahoolawe, clouds painted with every sunset color, the ocean reflecting the sun's last moments, the gentle lapping of waves and the soothing rhythm of the sea, a glass of wine in hand, a companion at your side on a romantic Maui dinner cruise - ah, it's a fine life!
This is a wonderful way to gather family and friends too, sharing a convivial evening of fun with a fine dinner, generous libations and good music. Some Maui dinner cruise vessels also include dancing. And there's nothing quite like returning to the port of Lahaina, the town's lights reflected in the waves, as you end a special evening drenched in stars. I can't think of a better way to celebrate an anniversary, have a mini reunion or bid 'aloha' to island friends than on one of Maui's fabulous dinner cruises.
A large part of it has to do with romance. We're a romantic species and no activity plays the heartstrings better than a Maui dinner cruise or sunset cruise, especially on your last night on Maui.
Maui Sunset Dinner Cruises usually include:
Full dinner and Open Bar, Live entertainment and the best show of all: the islands, the sea, the mountain peaks, clouds, sun, stars, and - as often as heavenly possible - the moon.
Tom's Tips -- Maui Sunset Dinner Cruises
We always like to recommend that you plan your Maui dinner cruise for your last night on Maui so you will have those last moments as a "send off" to remember upon your return home.
Maui Dinner Cruises leave from both Maalaea and Lahaina harbors. Maalaea cruises have beautiful Mt. Haleakala in the background; Lahaina cruises offer the West Maui Mountains and the lights of Lahaina. Take your pick.
Add to the special romance of the evening give a flower lei to your companion before boarding a Maui dinner cruise.
Maui dinner cruises finish early in the evening leaving lots of time to get in some dancing, night-clubbing or other special event.
Would you like to go for a dinner cruise on a luxury sailboat? The "Hula Girl" is a large multi million dollar sailing catamaran that is sixty-five feet long by thirty-five feet wide. On this dinner cruise the food is freshly prepared onboard by master chefs. The cruise is set up more like a floating restaurant then a catered meal on the sea. You order your food off a menu onboard. The boat is truly luxurious with a spacious lower cabin and a fly bridge that has couches with seating for twelve people. Cruises depart from Kaanapali beach right in front of Whalers Village. The waters off of Kaanapali are generally calm because they are sheltered from the trade winds. The sunset over the surrounding islands of Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe will provide a dynamic backdrop for the evenings sail.

The Maui Princess is a great choice for a dinner cruise that departs out of Lahaina Harbor. The catered meal that is served onboard consists of either prime rib or baked chicken. The meal is served with the dynamic, colorful backdrop of the Maui sunset framing the entire affair. The Maui Princess is a very large one hundred and eighteen foot double deck power yacht that is very spacious and stable. Cocktails, dinner and dancing are part of this special evening event, which could easily turn out to be the highlight of your Maui vacation. During whale season (December through May) it is very common to have whale sightings on this trip.

The Pacific Whale Foundation is a company that many people think does only whale watches and snorkel cruises. This is not the case, in addition to the whale watching and the snorkeling they also have sunset and dinner cruises. The sunset cruises are going to have less food. Generally there will be some light appetizers on the sunset sails as well as drinks. The dinner cruises are going to have a more substantial meal as well as a bar. The Pacific Whale Foundation offers sails departing out of both Lahaina and Maalaea Harbors. The Pacific Whale Foundation uses large catamarans to ensure a smooth ride and there is indoor and outdoor seating on all their boats. The Pacific Whale Foundation is known for it's friendly and knowledgeable crew. During whale season it is more then likely that you will run into some of the Humpback whales that come to Hawaii from the Northern Pacific every winter. These playful creatures are often observed spouting, fin slapping, spy hopping and if you're lucky you might even see one breech!

The waters surrounding Ma'alaea are known for their cool, refreshing evening breezes. The large open top deck of the "Pride of Maui" makes for an ideal location to take in the sunset and have a few drinks. In the cabin below a wide assortment of cuisines are available to feast upon.

The Teralani Charters sails the "Teralani" and "Teralani II" which are both sixty-five foot sailing catamarans. They offer a variety of trips aboard these magnificent vessels including a variety of whale watches and snorkel trips but they are perhaps best known for their sunset sails and dinner cruises. They moor their vessels off of Kaanapali Beach and they pull their catamarans up onto the beach to pick up and drop off passengers. This part of the island has some of the best sunset views with the surrounding islands of Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe making for a unique backdrop to the dynamic sunset scenery. The west side of the island is generally sheltered from the strong trade winds with very smooth sailing.

And try to make it your last night so that you’ll bring the romance of the islands back with you upon your return.
