    After a tasty beverage and some appetizers, I strolled to the front of the boat, put my arms out like Kate Winslet and let the warm breezes flow around me as I watched the sun illuminate the the water and the sky… I’ll think about this moment anytime I get stressed during “real life” back here in cold, cold Idaho. Take me to my happy place!

      That has to be one of the more poetic Maui dinner cruise reviews we’ve ever had. Thank you for sharing, Tracy. Throw another log on the fire and think about your time with us on Maui. ALOHA!

    If I could do this every night of my next vacation, I would. It was a great experience. The only downer is that they don’t offer it very often. We had to go the night before we left, which wasn’t fun the next morning. If you go on this sunset cruise, do it earlier in your trip.

    Wonderful! Thank you for making everything so easy. We got the white-glove treatment from the beginning. Very kind and friendly staff. I’ll be back!

    Last time we went on the Kai Kanani and I think that’s a better trip, but this one was fun too. I just missed the sailing part.

    Not sure sunset will ever be as good as this one was. Can I upload a photo of the sunset from our trip. It was BONKERS! I mean, we had some good sunsets from the beach infront of our hotel, but this was another level. Being on the water reflected it, but it was also an amazing sunset. Please post my picture.
