What to Expect & Know Before You Go
  • Although many of the Kauai sunset cruise boats and catamarans will have an indoor area where you can sit and relax, it is recommended that you bring a light jacket or sweater to wear once the sun goes down. While Hawaii is quite warm and temperate, it can become a bit chilly out on the water once the sun has set.
  • Depending on the ocean conditions and the size of the boat used for your Kauai cruise departing from Lihue and Hanapepe, it is recommended that you wear flats or low heeled shoes for your safety since ocean conditions can change at the drop of a hat.
  • Although there is no dress code for many of the island's sunset dinner cruises, most guests wear casual or aloha attire.
  • The sunset dinner and cocktail booze cruises on sailing catamarans will often have a lounging net to relax on during your tour. You might get splashed if you sit on the net, so be careful when you are in the area.
  • Hold on tight! When you are cruising, keep on hand on the boat at all times to make sure you don’t slip and fall.
  • The sunset cruises on Kauai offer a variety of alcoholic beverages to guests 21 years old and above, and for guests who are planning on drinking, be sure to have a designated driver or utilize a taxi/rideshare service to keeps the roads safe.
  • It is customary to give the captain and crew a gratuity if you feel they did an excellent job, and cash tips are always appreciated.

How to Get to a Kauai Sunset Cruise
Kauai sunset cocktail booze cruises and dinner sails depart from Hanapepe and Lihue, and depending on where you are staying on the island, the check-in location could be anywhere from a quick 15 minute to an hour long drive.
