Waikoloa Sunset Sail Details
Hawaiian sunsets are arguably some of the most beautiful in the world. It just feels different to watch the sun dip below the ocean while you’re sailing on the water, a gentle breeze through your hair, wearing summer clothes and no shoes year-round. It’s even better when it comes with free drinks, and better yet when it leaves steps from your hotel.
If you’re already planning on staying in Waikoloa, this sunset sail is a no-brainer to add to your itinerary as it leaves from A-Bay. The Waikoloa Beach Marriott is a stone’s throw away, and some of our other favorite Waikoloa lodging is just a short drive, the Waikoloa Beach Villas are even within walking distance. Be sure to also check out the Mauna Lani, the Shores at Waikoloa, and the Colony Villas.
This tour sets out on the same vessel as their morning Waikoloa Snorkel Tour, with the same beach loading tender process. Beach loading means this tour is not suitable for wheelchair users (but don’t worry, we have you covered here). You’ll step from the sand onto their tender boat that takes you to their 49-passenger catamaran that is anchored just off shore.
From there, you’ll embark on an unforgettable sunset sail, drink in hand as the sky is painted pink and orange. There isn’t a bad seat in the house and their Spirit of Aloha catamaran is equipped with bathrooms and freshwater showers. You won’t be getting fully submerged in the water on this tour, but it’s nice to be able to rinse your feet after beach loading.
Waikoloa Sunset Sail FAQ
What is the cancellation policy?
Hawaii Nautical has a 24 hour cancellation policy.
What should I bring on the tour?
- Come wearing something you don’t mind getting wet and easy-to-remove shoes for beach loading
- A light jacket if you think you may get chilly after the sun sets
What if I get seasick
If you’re prone to sea or motion sickness, be sure to take the appropriate medication as directed prior to your tour. Catamarans tend to be pretty comfortable vessels, but if you’re in Hawaii during the winter, you may experience rougher seas, so it’s better to be safe than sick!
