Mahalo for recommending us and appreciating the extra effort we put into providing an elevated experience. Chef Tania’s baby back ribs prepared with care and the watchful eyes of Chef Troy, truly are tender and delicious. Our mango cheesecake is a big hit too! Kimo and Maka are very passionate and talented and love to share their Aloha with our guests.

Aloha Jennifer, Thank You for touching on some of the most important components of what makes our Maui Sunset Luau Dinner Cruise a 5 star experience. The food is great because it is prepared with care in our own commercial kitchen just minutes from the harbor, following chef Tania’s recipes and sauces developed over the past 20 years. James and Jodi are a beautiful Hawaiian couple whose passion for sharing their culture through Polynesian song and dance is as genuine as their Aloha spirit. Pride of Maui is the largest Maxi Power Catamaran on Maui and the only tour boat which operates at just 60% of our Coast Guard capacity. We know our guests prefer to be aboard a spacious and stable yacht, offering much more space to comfortably move around and enjoy her sprawling open spaces. Operating with a lot fewer passengers than the other charter boats, allows us to provide an unmatched level of guest service at a very relaxed pace. The sunset views of our beautiful island from offshore are stunning. Thank You for sharing.

The crew was amazing and talented. The food was excellent. The views were breathtaking. We had accidentally booked on a Friday thinking we had booked on Thursday, not realizing it until we were in line to check-in. We notified one of the crew who talked to the Captain and they accommodated us instead of making us cancel, very classy move! We had so much fun, I even got to participate in part of an interactive show that my wife absolutely loved seeing me do, I'm normally shy about that kind of thing but the crew made us all feel so welcomed that I didn't think twice about it. We highly recommend this cruise on Pride of Maui!!

Aloha and thank you for your kind words about our amazing and talented crew. We appreciate your comments about the excellent food as well. The views of our beautiful island, from offshore are second to none. I am glad my skipper was able to accommodate you, when you showed up on the wrong evening. We are all about going the extra mile for our guests and appreciate you commenting about it. James and Jodi do such an excellent job at making our guests feel welcomed, and it's great that you participated in the Polynesian warrior dance. It truly is a fun cruise. Thanks again for joining us.

Great show, not great food
Thomas_S

Great ride, show and sunset, but not what I had planned for a "dinner" cruise. The food was cold and mediocre at best. There were no tables, so you had to stand to eat. I wouldn't recommend this if you are wanting a good dinner.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Aloha, There are custom tables built throughout the entire boat both upstairs and downstairs in the cabin below. If you allow your meal to sit too long in the open evening air, yes it will cool down. It definitely is not served cold, and in fact is kept warm on a buffet food service table over flame, until served. We serve delicious comfort food, including fall off the bone baby back ribs, oven roasted chicken, a medley of fresh roasted vegetables, Molokai coconut sweet potato, cheese and artisan cracker platters, and for dessert, a beautiful mango-lilikoi cheesecake. Sounds like you may have had an expectation which could have been more realistic, had you visited our website to view the menu and as such would have known ours is hearty and delicious comfort food, served with a premium open bar and wonderful entertainment, in a casual atmosphere with the option to eat at the stand-up tables, or upstairs where seated dining is provided. Thankfully, there are many other guests who know what to expect because they visited our website at prideofmaui.com for information about the tour, like the guests who attended the same evening as you, and gave us 5 stars, and a great review, including the food, which they described as delicious.

Aloha, Yes, Maka and Kimo treat our guests on an unforgettable cultural journey, through Polynesian music, hula, chants and story telling. Their genuine Aloha Spirit and pride in the local culture drives their performance, and is at the core of who they are.

Expect a pricey Sunset Cruise in Hawaii
Joy_C

The boat was nice. Lots of drinks, but if you want bottled water, bring your own. The appetizer, entree, & dessert were good. The staff was nice & friendly. Celebrations were acknowledged. One guest had a birthday so we were led in the most depressing rendition of "Happy Birthday" I've ever heard. I was surprised there wasn't a Hawaiian version to make it happier. They should come up with something else or not sing. The dancing (luau) piece was good. The husband was good looking. We learned several Hawaiian words & enjoyed the beautiful sunset.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
The reason we don’t have bottled water, is because it’s contained in a plastic bottle. Our goal is to do all we can to minimize our footprint on the environment. Which is why, at the bar downstairs we have 2 large water dispensers that contain osmosis filtered drinking water served in eco friendly biodegradable cups made from sugar cane. Maka and Kimo love for our guests to join in on singing happy birthday, and my experience is that many usually have a lot of fun with it. I bet you didn’t jump in and join in from the sound of it I’m glad the important components of the cruise, such as the boat, delicious food, premium bar, entertainment, guest service and beautiful sunset met or exceeded your expectations.Thanks for joining us.

Great Experience!
Krista_M
, Jun 2022
Great customer service!! The dances were great and we loved learning about the culture. The crew works so hard, and makes time to accommodate their guests. Parking, and finding check- in was easy. Food and drinks were good as well. The only draw back was the amount of pictures each person wanted of themselves or family, which was understandable in that wonderful lighting. However, the sunset was hard to see and enjoy when customers either want you to take their family pictures for them or push you out of the way. Just something to think about when boarding, sit somewhere that you can sit/stand and still get to enjoy that beautiful sunset. And not get in the way of the people needing that perfect picture.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Thank You for sharing your experience. This is the first time we’ve read that too many folks were standing up and posing for the sunset, or were blocking the views of the sunset. I know the Captain is cognizant of the importance of positioning the vessel for the best views of the sunset. We will take a closer look and if there is a recurring problem with so many standing up on one side of the very large observation deck that others can’t see the sunset, we could make an announcement requesting they be considerate of the other guests, though since this is the first time we’ve heard this, I suspect there were an unusually large number of unaware guests on this particular cruise. Thank You for letting us know and we will take a closer look at this. I’m happy your experience was great otherwise!

The staff were incredibly nice and the boat was in great shape - we felt very safe and welcomed for this dinner cruise. The three stars go to them. The drawbacks are that it's advertised as an open-bar luau dinner cruise and the whole experience felt very rushed. The bartenders were also the Hula dancers and since there was a Hula dance before dinner and after dinner, the bar was shut down for the majority of the time and when it was open, the drinks were made with very little alcohol. Of course, we didn't attend for the open-bar, but as soon as the after-dinner Hula was done, we were jetting back to the harbor so I don't feel like we really had an opportunity to enjoy the view as well, either.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Aloha, We feel two hours on the ocean to enjoy a beautiful sunset and Polynesian dinner show, is the right amount of time. You are right that this is not a booze cruise, and the emphasis is on the quality of our exceptional service, delicious food, professional entertainment, cleanliness of our spacious and stable yacht, and cultural immersion. The premium bar featuring a wide variety of nice labels is open and cocktails flow for more than an hour of the total two hours, and the intervals when the bar is unattended during performances allows time to finish your last cocktail. We want you to enjoy the premium open bar, and keep your glass topped off, just not so many that you might be seriously impaired while driving back to your resort at the end of the evening.

What a lovely way to spend our 50th wedding anniversary on May 26! Not only did we get to enjoy the sunset, Hawaii dancers, and the yummy food/drink, but we saw a humpback whale and her calf a month after the had all left the area! What a blessed evening!
