Tour Overview

Our relaxing Thanksgiving Dinner Cruise is a unique way to give thanks with family and friends, offering a delicious buffet of traditional favorites with all the fixings and some island-style influences. This holiday ecotour also offers spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, West Maui mountains, and neighbor islands.

Evening departures have the added bonus of Maui’s golden sunset as a backdrop. Likely appearances by humpback whales or dolphins make this a truly memorable Thanksgiving celebration.

Your Thanksgiving Dinner Cruise includes a guaranteed private table for your party to enjoy a delicious feast in a remarkable open-air setting at sea.
