Kauai Dinner Cruises

The evening time spells romance on the island of Kauai.


Enjoy a Kauai dinner cruise.


Your Kauai dinner cruise is certainly not typical of any other Hawaii dinner cruise.


The big reason for the difference in dinner cruises has a lot to do with the Na Pali Coast.


The Na Pali Coast is without question one of the most spectacularly beautiful coastlines in the world.


At sunset time it is even that much more spectacular and the Kauai dinner cruise boat companies are quite aware of this so their objective is to share the grandeur of this unique Kauai coastline with you on their dinner cruises.


Because the departure ports are some distance from the Na Pali Coast the dinner cruise vessels are required to spend more time on the ocean than the typical two-hour dinner cruise you will find on other islands and consequently your Kauai dinner cruise will usually extend to a 4.5 to 5.0 hour journey.


Since the timing is so long on these dinner cruises they will also usually include Snorkeling, Dolphin Watching and sightseeing on these tours as well and so your dinner cruise actually turns into more of an outing than you would generally expect.


In the long run however, it's all the better because viewing this coastline for a romantic dinner cruise will be beyond your wildest expectations in delivering and experience that will be forever memorable.


Kauai dinner cruises are at the top of the ladder and will be one of your most worthwhile Kauai activities.


(During the winter time when the waves at Na Pali may be too dangerous for a dinner cruise the Kauai dinner cruises will generally visit the southern shoreline of Kauai and revert to the normal two-hour dinner cruise experience).


Pride of America Cruise Ship:

Kauai Dinner Cruises do not pick up clients at the cruise ship. Cruise ship passengers can arrange for a taxi to take them to the departure point from the ship's dock or Tom Barefoot's Tours can make arrangements for you to have a Rental Car shuttle pick you up at the dock. These Kauai Dinner Cruise Tours can be arranged for the evening of Thursday on your cruise ship schedule. Please book well in advance to assure availability.

Look for this symbol in the tour descriptions below to indicate if it is Pride of America compatible.

As you may know, dinner cruises happen on all Hawaiian islands.

The ones that happen on the island of Kauai are truly quite different than all the others on the other islands. For one, the timing is different. Generally speaking, dinner cruises are usually two hours, sometimes two and a half. Somewhere in that zone.

On Kauai, they're longer. They can be four hours. They can be four and a half. It really has to do with the geography of the island and where they go. Let's pull this up. Here is the island of Kauai, Niihau over here. The place that is certainly the most exotic, most beautiful, most spectacular coastline that everyone wants to see is the Napali Coast.

The Napali Coast is of course in this area right here. About 11 miles stretch of coast where all the shoreline is just carved. It's full of caves and cliffs and waterfalls and beautiful foliage that's happening. Spires that are carved into the cliffs.

At sunset time, this is beautiful. It's beautiful any time of the day of course, but this would be an ideal place to go to see on a dinner cruise. That's why we offer dinner cruises to go there. The situation is though in order to get there, the closest spot to leave is from Port Allen over here and it just takes a while to get there.

The entire span of time, by the time you leave Port Allen, by the time you get back is going to be four hours, four and a half. That just makes it a little bit more of a dinner cruise fun time I guess. The trip out there is just cruising along the coast. Before you get to Napali Coast, you've got beautiful views and vistas looking back on Kauai anyway.

Then you've got all the marine life and sea creatures and such that you can see as you're going out, primarily dolphins. Dolphins are something that almost always happen on your trips in Kauai when you get in the water and start hitting anywhere. It is quite frequent that you're going to have dolphins with you probably a number of times racing up against the bowl of the boat or just in the distance to see the pods washing. Jumping out of the water and spinning if it's the spinner dolphins and that sort of thing.

Your time is going to be occupied well and enjoying the coastline and enjoying the cruise out there. Once you're there, it's going to be a dinner cruise. You're going to eat a nice full dinner. There will be some kind of cocktails. Either an open bar, certain amount of drinks that you're permitted with the dinner. Each boat, of course, is different in how they present and what they have. You're going to be having dessert and all that sort of thing.

It's a full dinner cruise, but in many ways, it's a little bit more casual than some of the other islands you might be going to because you're decked out for a sea cruise where you're going to be- ...


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.

These boats off the Big Island of Hawaii have been known for years as the spot to "party your sandals off." The coastline off the Kona shore with its views of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea is an ideal setting for a Big Island of Hawaii Dinner Cruises.
