Maalaea is perfectly situated for a view of the entire island of Maui and it’s neighboring islands of Lanai, Molokai, and Kahoolawe. It’s beautiful during the day but the view becomes enchanting when the day turns to night. If you want to see this then you can join the Sunset Sails in Maalaea. Sailing off the coast of Maui and feeling the warm tradewinds makes for an unforgettable experience. Being able to see the sky change colors from bright blue to a murky orange as you are swayed by the gentle waves is not an experience everyone gets to do. Everywhere you turn your head, you will be treated to a beautiful view. With the West Maui mountains and Haleakala on one side and the horizon and the Pacific ocean on the other, you will certainly feel like you are in paradise.

Some of these tours also offer food that you can gorge on while you sail into the sunset. There are sunset sails that only offer pupus or appetizers and drinks. Pupus like pork and chicken sliders, fruit platters, giant prawn cocktails and chicken skewers are served on these sunset sails. As for drinks, most of the boats have a supply of sodas, juice, imported and local beer, champagne and wine. There are also boats that provide full diners for their guests. Some of their menus consist of ribs, chicken dishes, and fresh fish. The Island Rhythms Sunset Ma’alaea from Pacific Whale Foundation on Maui has an onboard musician that will serenade you as you sail over the calm waters of Maui.
