Book a New Year's Maui Ocean Cruise

Maui is an amazing place to welcome a new year full of possibilities, so if you're lucky enough to be here for the celebration, you've made the right choice. There are plenty of exciting ways to bid farewell the old and ring in the new. For example, if you find it convenient to reach the historic beach town of Lahaina, there are plenty of possibilities.

Lahaina is a great place for shopping at charming little boutiques, or trying some delicious Maui cuisine on just about any budget, or grabbing a few drinks surrounded by outgoing folks from here and abroad. If you feel like doing something extra special, you could always make your way down to the scenic Lahaina Harbor for an ocean activity.

Whether you prefer to do most of your celebrating on the last day of December or the first day of January, you can spend your holiday celebrating while surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the Pacific Ocean, off the tranquil coast of Lahaina. The silky blue water stretches as far as the eye can see, punctuated by the regal shapes of Molokai and Lanai islands off to the west, in the direction of the sunset. Whether billowing or lacy, the clouds turn a lovely shade of pinkish orange when they dot the sky overhead. All the while, the verdant green West Maui Mountains stand tall and steady over the ocean, often capped by a crown of its own mist.

You can soak up all this natural beauty on our Maui Whale Watch Tour or our Maui Sunset Dinner Cruise. Of course this all depends on when you'd like to go and how fast we get booked up, but if you check soon, you might get just what you're hoping for. The dinner cruise is ideal if you prefer a celebratory evening of delicious food and drink followed by a night of dancing under the stars with fellow revelers. The whale watch will be best suited to those who want a memorable daytime activity that reminds you just how awe-inspiring the world can be, if you know where to look. Just don't be surprised if seeing these gentle giants in their natural habitat ends up shifting your perspectives a bit. On that note, it seems fitting to spend New Years Eve on our sunset dinner cruise, followed by a whale watch on the first day of the new year.

Conveniently, we are currently offering 10% off all our activities if you book online. This offer could change in the future, so make sure you check if its still available by the time you get to this blog. Otherwise, if you need our assistance or you have any questions for us, you'll find our contact number at the top of the page. We will be happy to help start your new year off the right way. Mahalo!
