Come aboard Kona’s only custom built dinner cruise vessel Spirit of Kona, for a unique Hawaiian experience. This cruise combines the romance of a sunset cruise with the excitement of a
floating Luau. The Spirit of Kona even offers nocturnal reef life viewed through illuminated underwater glass wells.
As you begin your cruise our musician will welcome and entertain you from the main deck stage. Remain on the main deck for dinner while sitting along the outer rail where you can enjoy unobstructed views. For a more romantic setting try the upper café deck with its table and chair dining. Each table with its own spectacular view.*** Be sure to stop at one of the on board bars for complimenatry drinks sure to please.
As the Spirit of Kona travels along the scenic Kona Coast watch for spinner dolphins that can often be seen swimming at the bow. Humpback
whales are regular companions on this dinner cruise during their annual
migration to Hawaiian waters (December through April).**
Enjoy a delicious dinner served buffet style (menu link) as you watch the sun fall gently into the
Pacific Ocean. After dinner, gather around the main deck glass bottom wells for
a view of the night time reef. Guests who wish to remain on the upper deck can also enjoy the reef via an underwater camera that displays live video feed to a flat screen TV. Watch for reef life that can include tropical fish,
turtles, sharks or other sea animals. The Kona Manta Ray will often make a late night appearance feeding on plankton drawn in by the underwater lights. You never know what Mother Nature might deliver.
Now its time for the hula show where hula dances begin on the main deck stage and flow into the isles where passengers often join in the fun. After the
show, it’s your turn to hit the dance floor and dance the night away to a
lively mixture of oldies and contemporary music. We’ll have you dancing in the

Dear Ray and Cindy,
I must tell you how much I enjoyed the cruise. As a concierge for the Hilton Grand Vacation Clubs we are supposed to try the activities (I know that you know that!!). The cruise was one of the most enjoyable things I have done. You have put everything together in a wonderfully complete package. The evening was totally enjoyable.
This is the first activity that I have done that was flawless from start to finish. Not only was it flawless, but there was nothing incongruous - which is also different than any other activity. It was a very well thought out activity. I am now suggesting this to every guest as I think it will be a highlight for them.
Thank you so very much for the great evening on the reef.
