Dinner Cruises

There Are Many Reasons For The Popularity Of the Hawaii Dinner Cruise.

Hawaii is not the only place in the world that you will find dinner cruises but the Hawaii dinner cruise is a category of activity that is found on all the major Hawaiian Islands.

Not only is this an activity that is prevalent on the islands but it is with some astonishment that we are always somewhat surprised by our own figures which show that the category of "Hawaii dinner cruise" always scores fifth or sixth in popularity when compared to all the other various categories of activities in Hawaii.

The popularity of dinner cruises in Hawaii are likely a factor of the following reasons:

  • Dinner Cruises occur at the absolutely most beautiful time of the day. Looking out at a sunset setting over the water or over a nearby island is both blissful and romantic.
  • Most everyone loves an ocean experience and this is a way to get out and appreciate the water in a relaxed fashion that is mixed together with generous amounts of socialization.
  • Dinner Cruise tours are relatively short. They usually last only between two and two-and-a-half hours and for many people that suits the limit of time they want to be on the water.
  • Dinner Cruises in Hawaii tend to depart at a time of day that is usually the calmest and the boat captains also maneuver their vessels into areas where it will be calmer still. Calm water is best for dinner cruises.
  • On vacation, people will generally go out to eat dinner at a restaurant anyway. This way they can combine a great dinner with the unmatched ambiance and great views from the water. This will beat your very best ocean side dining from land.

The Hawaiian Dinner Cruises are Unique to Each Island.

Each Hawaiian island brings its own special flavor to it's Hawaii dinner cruise and they can be quite different.

Oahu of course is the 'big city' island in Hawaii and Oahu dinner cruises reflect this difference with a big city flare.

This is the home of the very largest of the dinner cruise Boats often seating in excess of one-thousand people on an individual cruise.

The Oahu dinner cruise boats can also be a bit more up-scale dependent upon the specific type of meal and setting you request.

Limousines can be arranged to take you to the boat directly from your hotel and the finest champagnes can be individually provided for you upon your desire.

Don't think that everything is this upscale however because dinner cruises departing from Honolulu can also provide the very best values in the state for those looking for a bargain.

Kauai dinner cruises are quite different as Hawaii dinner cruises go.

Because most dinner cruises on Kauai will attempt to take you to see the spectacular Na Pali Coastline (if it is the right time of year which would be the summer months) and since the departure points for the cruises are situated some distance from that coast, these dinner cruises are by far the dinner cruises that are the longest in terms of time spent on the water.

Many of these dinner cruises will spend as long as five hours on the water and they will offer additional activities such as Snorkeling and Dolphin Watching as well.

Hawaii Dinner Cruises are Available on Maui, Oahu, Kauai and the Big Island.

Maui has two popular harbors from which dinner cruises are launched and cruises leaving from Maui are among the most appreciated in the state.

Lahaina may be the most idyllic setting for a dinner cruise in all Hawaii as it provides for extremely calm waters with views of islands all around.

From just off the coast in Lahaina you can watch the colors change on the West Maui Mountains behind you but also see the islands of Kahoolawe, Molokai and Lanai as well.

Depending upon the time of year your dinner cruise is leaving from here you will see the sun set directly over the island of Lanai or directly into the ocean.

Maalaea Harbor is the other harbor from which dinner cruises on Maui will depart and this location allows for a view of Maui's beautiful Mt. Haleakala.

The 'Kona' side of the Big Island of Hawaii is where you will find all the dinner cruises depart to see an incredible sunset.

Kailua/Kona itself is the biggest departure point but dinner cruises will leave from as far north as Waikoloa.

Kona has been known for its dinner cruises for decades and this location has developed the reputation as being the spot to "party your sandals off" on the Big Island.
