Na Pali Sunset Buffet Dinner Cruise

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Discover one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world on a 3.5-hour Na Pali sunset dinner cruise. This natural wonder of dramatic scenery and colors is best seen from the water. As you travel along the Na Pali Coast, take in its cathedral cliffs, ancient lava tubes, sea caves, and waterfalls, and enjoy a locally made dinner on board as you watch the scene change with the setting sun. Celebrate the evening with a Champagne toast, and sip other drinks like mai tais, island juices, beer, and wine. It's a great way to start any night on Kauai.
  • Capture gorgeous sunset photos of the Na Pali Coast
  • Choosing a catamaran means a more stable ride
  • Chance to see sea turtles, dolphins, and whales
  • Enjoy beer, wine, fresh juice, and mai tais
What to Expect
Grab a jacket and make your way to the Port Allen marina to board a 65-foot (20-meter) power catamaran for the scenic trip to the Na Pali Coast, which wraps 16 miles (26 kilometers) around Kauai’s northwestern edge. Watch for sea turtles and dolphins as you cruise, with the chance to see whales during the migration season of December through April. Drinks, Champagne, and appetizers will be served as you approach the Na Pali Coast’s jagged cliffs and valleys, and as the sunset turns the coast a rosy hue. Enjoy dinner on the boat, then begin the return trip to the Punta Allen marina, traveling back along the coast for an entirely different perspective. This Na Pali Coast dinner cruise concludes at the original departure point.

A truly amazing way to see the Na Pali coast. Great captain and crew, deliciously satisfying buffet and stiff drinks. The “sunset” isn’t the highlight, it’s the “afterglow” which is SPECTACULAR!
