Private Maui Sunset Dinner Cruise
The Island Star may not be the conventional restaurant that you can pop into for a quick meal, but the planning it takes to dine here is well worth it.
The Island Star is a beautiful 57-foot sailing yacht that hosts private charters out of Ma’alaea Harbor.
While a private sailing charter is already bound to be phenomenal, the Island Star takes the experience to the next level by offering one of Maui’s most unique and exclusive dining experiences.

A Three Hour Tour
We embarked on a three-hour sunset sail aboard Island Star to sample their exquisite onboard menu. The menu is lined with seafood appetizers, fresh salads made with local greens, and impressive entrees featuring steaks, fresh fish, and lobster. All of the food is prepared fresh on board by crew members. In addition to being experienced sailors, the crew aboard Island Star are also talented chefs and service professionals.
We started with the ahi sashimi and California rolls. The fish was undoubtedly fresh and rivaled any other sushi restaurant on the island. Next, we tried the Kula greens with raspberry vinaigrette.
As we waited for our entrees, we sipped champagne from the Island Star’s bar and enjoyed one of the best dining venues in the world. As the sun set, we indulged in our delightful entrees- rib-eye steak with mashed potatoes and grilled lobster. Finally, after our plates were nearly clean, we opted for deserts of strawberry angel cake and fresh fruit. Overall, the service, food, and atmosphere aboard Island Star are equal to some of Maui’s finest establishments.
With personalized service, gorgeous views, and outstanding food, an evening meal aboard the Island Star is nothing short of a five-star experience.
