Tour Overview

This whale season, our award-winning Sunset Dinner Cruise will now include extra time for meeting and learning about Maui’s favorite winter visitor: humpback whales! Our crew will provide onboard wildlife interpretation and will even deploy an underwater microphone to share live whale songs. Dinner will be served tableside and all guests are guaranteed outdoor private seating; no buffet line here. Your dinner will be grilled on board and locally sourced whenever possible. Even our bar is sourced from Maui; enjoy Ocean Organic Farm and Distillery spirits and Maui Brewing Co. seltzer and beer. Island-style music and open views of Maui’s scenic coast add to the ambience of this memorable experience. But leave a seat at the table for the North Pacific’s biggest dinner guest, the Humpback Whale! This is an island experience not to be missed.
