Star Na Pali Dinner Sunset Sail

4 hrs   Adult $245   Child $205

Indulge in an extraordinary evening of enchantment aboard Capt Andy's premiere Kauai sunset cruise. Prepare to be whisked away on a captivating journey along the breathtaking Na Pali Coastline, as you witness the sun gracefully setting over the Pacific Ocean. Step on board our luxurious sailing catamaran and you'll immediately feel the warm hospitality and professionalism of our experienced crew. Settle into the spacious deck, find a comfortable spot, and get ready to embark on a truly magical Kauai dinner cruise.

Afternoon light is amazing on Na Pali. See rich hues of green, red and black as the setting sun highlights the many sharp ridge lines and valleys that make this coastline unique. After heading North up Na Pali we’ll enjoy a relaxing downwind cruise and sunset at sea.

The Na Pali Dinner Sunset Sail is our premier "dinner with a view" experience. Sunsets at sea, viewed from the Star are spectacular. Passengers will enjoy a panoramic view of the entire coastline from Haena to Milolii, with the "forbidden" island of Ni'ihau in the distance. Each day is unique, as the light reacts with clouds and landscapes. Rainbows frequently add color to the distant mountains.

The sail starts with a short briefing and introduction as we depart from Port Allen and head West, then North and upwind on the Na Pali (depending on the conditions).

Meanwhile our team of onboard chefs will get busy preparing the fresh meal. Unlike other charter boats, The Star is equipped with a full galley (kitchen) and bar. This means that the meal can be prepared fresh onboard instead of the standard practice of pre-cooking food.

On most days the Hawaiian tradewinds are blowing from the East, which makes for a perfect downwind sail once we reach our turnaround point. The crew's objective on this sail is to position the boat for a calm, downwind sail during dinner service. Once we reach our turnaround, the crew will power down the boat's twin diesels and hoist the massive mainsail and jib. Now you're set up for some sailing, relaxing and yummy food.

We time the sail to pull in at Port Allen near dusk, our goal is to return you to shore safe, happy and full.
