See Kauai’s coastline at its most magical during a sunset cruise at sea. Choose between luau-style buffet feasts and romantic catamaran cruises, or opt for sailing adventures that include snorkeling and whale watching opportunities. Here are a few of Kauai’s best evening cruises.
Evening Dinner Cruises
Most Kauai dinner cruises depart from Port Allen on the South Shore and set sail for the emerald-hued cliffs and beaches of Na Pali Coast. Cruise options range from luxury yachts complete with live music and Hawaiian-style buffet dinners to more intimate private catamarans.
Most tours include Hawaiian-themed cocktails and onboard entertainment, plus a Champagne toast at sunset. For the best value, opt for a combo tour that pairs an afternoon snorkeling adventure with an evening dinner cruise.
Sunset Sightseeing Cruises
If you’re more interested in coastal scenery than onboard amenities, swap full-service dinner cruises for a sightseeing cruise. You’ll hear stories and legends about Kauai’s history from your guide and increase your chances of spotting, dolphins, turtles, and sea birds. Evening sightseeing tours set out from Port Allen or the Kukuiula Small Boat Harbor, and special whale-watching cruises are available during the months of December through April.
