This unique and popular sunset cocktail cruise is hosted by Marty Dread, one of Maui's top reggae stars, whose charisma and enthusiasm gets everyone up dancing and having fun. It's an ideal multigenerational cruise; kids love dancing as much as the adults!

"Not a great value"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed June 22, 2018 NEW
The staff was pleasant but the food was microwaved and soggy. The captain drove the boat away from the sunset for 45 minutes so we went to go sit on the back of the boat to actually watch the sunset and she seemed upset by this. No one talked to us about the ocean life or history of the land as advertised. I think there are better sunset sails available.
