My wife and I went on the sunset sail during March and it was an amazing experience. For some reason it turned out we were just 8 passengers total, so it was a ver private experience. After leaving the harbor, the winds calmed and it was beautiful. The scenery, crew, food, drinks, sunset and the whales were amazing. We truly couldn't have hoped for a better sailing experience. And they have a shuttle that picks and drops you off at your hotel. How awesome is that?
A many thanks to captain Trent, Nikita, Marcio and Johanna. They really went above and beyond to make our sail an unforgettable experience.
Hands down the best cruise I've taken in a long time. The custom-built catamaran is wonderfully scaled, the crew is phenomenally warm, accommodating, and fun, and you can't beat the venue. Then, to top it all off, we encountered our first whale pod... like literally 2 minutes out of the slip! Couldn't have been better choreographed if they tried. Even the food was great. I typically have a low bar but in that regard but was really pleasantly surprised with the food and top shelf cocktails. Easily worth the small premium over comparable options. The only improvement I could think of is somehow adding built in cup holders along the deck. When the wind kicks up and the whales pop, it gets hard to hold everything 😉
Amazing crew with great snacks and cocktails. We must have seen 50 whales. Captain did an awesome job finding them. Not the least expensive tour available but well worth stepping up just a bit for this experience.
The experience on the Alii Nui never disappoints. I've sailed with them on several occasions and have enjoyed both snorkeling cruises and, most recently, the sunset cruise. They offer a nice variety of activities and great food, and the boat itself is quite impressive. The Captain and crew we had on this past sunset cruise had higher winds to contend with than I've experienced on previous excursions. Their handling of the boat to ensure an amazing time was impressive. Kudos to our Captain who handled and docked the boat like it was a windless afternoon!
Tim and his crew were amazing!!! We went snorkeling on 3/7 and there was some unusual weather that prevented us from going to Molokini crater. Tim decided to detour to Lanai where we came across spinner dolphins on the way and had a beautiful area to snorkel in with only one other boat around. My wife and I got lucky and were surrounded by about 30 dolphins at one point. To top off the day, on the way back we came across a few groups of humpback whales which we stopped and were able to take pictures and videos. We were lucky enough to have a whale breach just a couple hundred yards away!!! We were planning on doing a whale watch but didn't after having a grand slam experience on our way back from snorkeling.
They have everything you need when snorkeling. They offer a variety of coral safe sunscreens on the boat, so no need to have your own. They had noodles, wetsuit tops and other flotation devices for when snorkeling, all free to use. The bathrooms were stocked with the best smelling soaps and lotions, even dry shampoo/conditioner for after the snorkeling!!
Oh, and they will come pick you up and drop you off for free in nice vans. Not old beaters with no AC. They even offer an upgrade to a limo for their special cruises!
If we go back to Maui we will 100% take another tour of some sort, sunset, dinner etc....with the Ali's Nui as the boat and crew were all the best we have ever sailed with. Not to mention they treat you with a buffet breakfast and lunch, have an open bar with alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks. My wife wasn't feeling great on the way out and they gave her fresh made ginger ale, not store bought, and she felt better within 5 minutes. The photographer on the boat was awesome, had great equipment for you to rent if you don't have any yourself, and took some great videos and pictures with very reasonable prices on them after the trip. They somehow manage to keep making things better as they had an assortment of after sun lotions with aloe or lavender etc... that all smelled amazing. THEN they give you a nearly frozen hand towel soaked in something amazing to cool off with. It was like a spa experience in the middle of the ocean!!!
I can't say enough times how great the crew and the whole experience was. It's not the cheapest and everything I wrote about above is why. No boat I've ever been on for anything comes close to the Ali'i Nui. The meaning of the name is similar to the ruler or King, which is a very fitting name as they are King of every boat I've ever been on.
Now they just need to add deep sea fishing to their list so I can do that with them when we come back next!
I've also added a couple pics of the whale breaching and the dolphins underwater. The one picture there's about 25 dolphins in the shot alone!! The other one is hard to tel but the dolphins were only 15-20 feet away swimming right under me!!! The glare from the sun made it hard in some of the video to see when they were the closest unfortunately.
