Marty Dread is back by popular demand to host our Island Rhythms Sunset Cocktail Cruise out of Ma'alaea Harbor. What could be more fun than dancing on the bow of a boat to live island-style reggae music by Maui's own Marty Dread.

This open-air dance party at sea has been lengthened to 2 ½ hours and is a great multi-generational affair. A variety of tasty appetizers and refreshing beverages keep the fun in full swing, as the sun sets over the majestic Pacific Ocean. During winter months, guest appearances by humpback whales add to the excitement of this trip.

Island rhythms sunset cocktail cruise

This was one of our favorite excursions. Great for couples or families alike. It was a little choppy but the captain took us on a short trip to Hanalei bay. Marty started singing on the way out. The bay was well protected and calm. And that’s when the fun really started. Marty has everyone dancing, the crew was exceptional as were the food and beverages. Every other boat that passed us I’m sure their guests wished they were with us! I will do this excursion again. Thanks to the Captain, Marty , the crew and pacific eco tours. Aloha and Mahalo
