While Kauai is known as the Garden Island, Maui is known as The Valley Isle. As the second largest Hawaiian island, Maui is famous for magnificent sunrises and sunsets that can be seen from Haleakala (house of sun) National Park. If it’s a sunset cruise you’re after, add some color to your vacation while sailing one of these.
