We’ve recently been looking into private charters for weddings, corporate events, and family reunions. Most vessels on Maui will allow for private charters at a price. The key is finding the right boat for your trip with the best price.
One that we particularly like is Pride of Maui. Along with regular snorkeling trips, sunset dinner cruises and whale watches, Pride of Maui does their fair share of private bookings for weddings and events.
Their catamaran is fast and stable with lots of deck room. For those looking to enjoy water activities like snorkeling, scuba or even snuba, this is a great boat to choose. They have warm water showers, stairs into the water and swim platforms. The Pride of Maui also has a water slide and glass-bottom viewing windows.
Weddings on the Pride of Maui are great for small parties. I personally would suggest a ceremony on the beach then having the reception on the boat, though quite a few people do their ceremonies on the water with excellent results.
We went to one ceremony on the water in south Maui a few years back. It was a really special event because at sunset the sky lit up and the photos were beyond amazing!
