Overview
Savor a luau-style meal complete with the best backdrop in Kauai on this Na Pali Coast sunset dinner cruise. See the famous shoreline’s spires and valleys bathed in golden light, and watch an unforgettable Hawaiian sunset from the deck of a spacious catamaran. Enjoy local specialties right onboard with a dinner buffet, and end the evening with a sparkling wine toast.
Highlights
  • See Kauai’s famous Na Pali Coast from the water on a sunset cruise
  • Take photos of towering sea cliffs and valleys in the changing light
  • Watch the sun set behind the ocean with a glass of sparkling wine
  • Includes an onboard Hawaiian buffet with beer, wine, and cocktails
What to Expect
Board a spacious, 65-foot (20-meter) catamaran at the Port Allen Marina Center and get a safety briefing from the captain and crew before sailing along Kauai’s west coast to Na Pali. Hear island legends and see historical landmarks en route to the towering sea cliffs and emerald valleys of this famous coastline, even more gorgeous when seen in the afternoon light. Keep your camera handy for different perspectives as the captain cruises close to shoreline waterfalls and sea caves (weather conditions permitting), and take advantage of a Titanic-style photo opportunity. Stop at a panoramic viewpoint near Kalalau Valley for a delicious Hawaiian buffet served with your choice of beer, wine, and mai tai cocktails. Watch the sun change colors as it dips below the horizon, and toast the sunset with a glass of sparkling wine.

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with our first trip to Hawaii. We were thrilled to be able to take this boat tour of the Napali Coast. It is absolutely amazing and going by boat is definitely the way to go in the winter. No one should go to Kauai without

This cruise delivered on the Napoli Coast and the sunset. It more than delivered on the friendliness of the crew and the whales we got to see. We saw one whale breach three times and had maybe a dozen other whale sightings. It was incredible! The food and drink was good and

We set sail about 2:00 PM. Saw many whales breeching! Water was fairly calm that day. Staff on catamaran were fun, and very knowledgeable re the Napali Coast. This stretch of coastline is nothing short of spectacular. The dinner served was great! This is not to be missed

Oh my lord, tonight was amazing. Joe was the captain and brought us right up to all the whales. We saw 2 different sets of whales, both with a mom, baby, and juvenile. We also saw one loner whale. They swam right up next to us. I think out of the whole trip there was maybe 2
