Maui Sunset Cruises near the Mauian Hotel
What better way to enjoy a stunning island sunset than relaxing on a smooth-sailing catamaran with your camera in one hand and a frosty mai tai in the other? Maui sunset cruises are very popular, providing panoramic coastline views accompanied by live entertainment, free-flowing bars, and dinner (if a dinner cruise) as the sun sinks into the sea.
These cruises are a pleasant way to enjoy Maui’s mild tropical evenings, and are especially rewarding during whale season, when you are likely to see humpbacks frolicking along the way. A number of options are available from the island’s tour boat companies, from small informal cruises (a plate on your lap and the wind in your face), to sit-down dining on larger vessels, to elegant private charters.
At any time of day, our Napili hotel is close to an abundance of choices for visitors wanting to enjoy an excursion by sea. Choose from spacious catamarans and trimarans, large motor yachts, small Hobie Cats, sailboats, kayaks, zodiac-style rafts, and even a submarine excursion. Before commencing on your Maui sunset cruise, you can select a large-group tour or a more personal small-group excursion with no more than six people. Most of these daytime expeditions allow time for swimming or snorkeling, some include food, and some also may cross the channel to the islands of Lanai or Molokai (you can see both islands from The Mauian). Don’t forget your waterproof sunscreen! The Mauian Hotel is close to many Maui activities.
Many of the island’s most popular boat excursions depart from Kaanapali or Lahaina, just 10 to 15 minutes away from The Mauian.
