4th of July Fireworks Cruise Offered by Pacific Whale Foundation

What's the very best way to enjoy Lahaina's spectacular 4th of July fireworks show?
Embark with Pacific Whale Foundation on a festive 4th of July cruise complete with hearty hot and cold appetizers, desserts and drinks to get an unobstructed view of the aerial displays. You'll also enjoy sunset views of Maui, Lana'i and Kaho'olawe from sea. 
"Maui residents know that these cruises offer the most relaxing way to see the fireworks, without any worries about parking or any stress about finding a place to sit  on the shoreline," says John Gaskins, Customer Care General Manager at Pacific Whale Foundation. "We serve delicious picnic-style appetizers, including Hawaiian BBQ Glazed Ribs and Marinated Chicken Breasts, Grilled Veggies, Mediterranean Pasta Salad and Potato-Macaroni Salad, plus cold Maui Brewing Co. beer, red and white wine, Mai Tais and other tropical mixed drinks, as well as soda and juices." 
"We'll also have sliced watermelon and our amazing Triple Chocolate Brownies," he notes. 
The cruises depart from Ma'alaea Harbor at 6:00 pm, 6:45 pm and 7:00 pm, and from Lahaina Harbor at 7:30 pm on Pacific Whale Foundation's smooth-riding catamarans. The price is $69.95 for adults and $49.95 for children ages 3 to 12. 
There's also a slightly lower priced, non-alcoholic version of the cruise from Ma'alaea Harbor at 6:30 pm. The adult price is $62.95. Children are $49.95.

Gaskins cautions that the tickets are going quickly. "Many repeat visitors and Maui residents know that these trips are popular and have been booking early," he says. "To avoid disappointment, make your reservation today."
