5 Incredible Ways to Watch the Sunset in Hawaii

Hawaii has some of the world’s most famous sunsets, so anyone taking a Hawaii vacation should make it a point to watch at least one sunset in Hawaii.

The islands offer some of the most incredible sunsets, with countless vantage points where visitors can watch the sun set each day.

From cultural dinner cruises to an adventurous zipline across the rainforest canopy, here are the five5 best ways to see a sunset in Hawaii:

1. Koloa Sunset Zipline Tour, Kauai

You can see the beautiful “garden island” from the rainforest canopy with The Flyin’ Kau’ian Harners on the Koloa Zipline Tour, just as the sun goes down. This eight-line zipline course across forest, jungle, flat lands, and water – and when you watch it at the end of the day, you’ll experience an amazing sunset and tour.

The tour covers around covers 1.5 miles in about four hours, and gives you the thrill of whizzing across the island from up high.

You can even share the experience with your loved ones by taking a tandem zipline.

2. Champagne Sunset Sail, The Big Island

View the breathtaking setting sun from the Big Island’s famous Kohala Coast on the champagne sunset sail.

The tour shows off one of the most beautiful sunsets in Hawaii, with an unforgettable green flash as the sun connects with the horizon. And it also (hopefully) includes whales and dolphins who often playfully swim alongside the boat.

You can enjoy appetizers and champagne while on board, where the vibe is laid-back “island-style”.

3. Sunset, Dinner and Show Cruise, Oahu

This two-hour sunset cruise on the Star of Honolulu is a must for visitors to Oahu.

The island’s largest dinner cruise ship provides some stunning views of the sunset along the Waikiki coastline. The evening also comes with dinner and drinks, and offers a number of package options to suit every taste and budget, including a delicious three-course dinner and a welcome cocktail.

The highlight of the cruise, aside from the sunset, is the “My Hawaii – Beyond the Reef” show, the show with the largest cast on the water’s of Hawaii!

4. Island Rhythms Sunset Cocktail Cruise, Maui

The Pacific Whale Foundation offers a fun and beautiful Island Rhythms Sunset Cocktail Cruise along Maui’s coastline.

The 2-hour cruise takes place on a high-tech catamaran which has plenty of room, especially to dance. The key difference about this cruise is the live music.

The reggae artist Marty Dread leads the night, which also includes appetizers, and offers music that is great for all ages, from teens to grandparents. This is a really great way to watch the Maui skyline turn orange.

5. Sunset Horseback Ride, Oahu

Take a walking-ride on horseback through the 400-acre working Gunstock Ranch near Turtle Bay in Oahu’s North Shore just in time for the sunset.

The guided tour takes around 90 minutes and is available for beginners and intermediate riders. The tour takes on the mountain trails with stunning views of the ocean, and stops at a perfect lookout point where you can enjoy the sunset while at one with nature.
