Alii Nui Sunset cruise

There is nothing better than to enjoy a romantic sunset sail off the scenic coast of western Maui. The combination of the setting golden sun, tropical blue waters, and lush landscape of Maui’s western coast … make for a perfect combination.

If you’re looking for the best sunset cruise on Maui, then your only choice is the Alii Nui.

When passengers first board the Alii Nui catamaran, they will notice that this isn’t just your ordinary catamaran. It’s a truly, luxury boat and the very best in all of Maui.

The phrase Alii Nui represents “Highest of Royalty” in the Hawaiian language, and the description couldn’t be any more perfect.

This brand new, luxury catamaran is an impressive sight. It measures 65 feet from stem to stern and 36 feet from port to starboard.

The Alii Nui has a lot of deck space, including multiple trampolines which are similar to hammock-like lounging areas.

The all-weather, covered cabin is extremely roomy with plenty of space to mingle and socialize. It includes 8 tables and comfortable seating – for either intimate chats or large group discussions.
