Watching a sunset from the deck of a boat is a completely different experience than watching from the beach. Sunsets are three-dimensional – and there is no better way to realize the 360-degree view than to get out on the water. Not only does the sky turn different shades of pink and orange, but the mountains are painted with this colorful brush as well. You owe it to yourself to get out on the water and really enjoy a sunset on your next visit to Sands of Kahana.

The Pride of Maui has now upgraded its cocktail cruise to include entrees. This is a large, stable vessel with lots of places to sit and enjoy dinner. There is plenty of room to roam around, and it offers a little more privacy if you want to go off by yourself. This is a good choice for people staying in South Maui who want to get out on the water at sunset. 

Actually it’s a good choice for everyone. The Pride of Maui sunset grill cruise is so good it isn’t just recommended for South Side visitors; it is even worth the drive from Lahaina and Kaanapali too! There are plenty of places to sit down, but not at a table, so you’ll be holding your plate while you eat.

The most popular and longest-running sunset cruise is the Maui Princess dinner cruise. Tables on this boat seat four, and if there are just two of you don’t expect a table all to yourself. You will likely be sharing one with another couple.

For a different sunset cruise experience take one of the beautiful sailing catamarans that leaves right from the beach. Teralani Sailing offers two different boats, one with a full dinner cruise and one with appetizers. See your concierge for more information.
