Hurricane Relief Blog

Sea Monkey is all about fun, excitement, and luxury. Sometimes, however, life has a way of pulling all of us back away from ourselves to recognize the needs of others and serious, sometimes tragic events. In the wake of the destruction, devastation and heartache left behind by Hurricanes Harvey, and Irma, the arms of Sea Monkey are extended outward. We grieve for the insurmountable loss of many. Please join Sea Monkey in prayer and relief effort to help restore the loss. Every prayer, every gift, no matter how large or small matters to the people who desperately need it. Hurricane relief efforts can be found online, you can give monetarily or even purchase products online that will be shipped directly to the affected areas. Sea Monkey has a lot of happy memories from the time the boat was in Key West and we want to do our part to do support the communities. Come together and help rebuild – while we cannot halt the operations of fun and excitement that our guests seek on their Hawaiian vacations – we can show our kuleana (responsibility) aloha (love) and kokua (assistance).

Sea Monkey Private Charters is donating 10% of all charters booked in the month of September 2017 to the American Red Cross hurricane relief effort. Our thoughts are with all recovering from or bracing for the hurricanes. 

Aloha and blessings from Sea Monkey Private Charters Owners, Staff, & Crew.

Where To Propose On Maui

Hawaii’s second largest island is often described as a sun-drenched pacific paradise, so it is no wonder that many couples find it the ideal place for a romantic proposal. With fabulous scenery, idyllic weather, wonderful food, and a calmer, more relaxed atmosphere than Hawaiian destinations such as Waikiki, there are plenty of places to propose on Maui whatever time of day you choose. Most visitors head to either West Maui or South Maui for the best locations.

 

Sunrise Proposals on Maui

Most people would agree that if you want to pop the question as the sun comes up, there is no better place on Maui to do it than at the top of Haleakala, a dormant volcano in Haleakala National Park. The views from the top are breathtaking, but do be aware it takes two hours to drive to the top from the coast, you need to plan ahead if you want to be there for the sunrise, which is known as one of the best in the world. Legend has it that the Hawaiian god Maui waited in the volcano’s crater to capture the sun and make it move more slowly through the sky.

 

Daytime Proposals on Maui

One of the most romantic ways to propose in Maui is to pack a picnic and head for a secluded beach where you can enjoy snorkeling and swimming before or after the proposal. Ideal beaches in South Maui include Sugar Beach and Kamaole II Beach, while in West Maui Kaanapali Beach and Napili Bay is are wonderful choices.

Lahaina is a lovely historic town in West Maui and is ideal for a more public proposal. You can spend the day shopping Front Street and work your way to the harbor where you can take a cruise or simply walk along the seawall before you get down on one knee. Celebrate afterwards with a Mai Tai at one of the picturesque waterfront bars.

 

Sunset Proposals on Maui

Maui sunsets are legendary and can be enjoyed from just about anywhere along the west coast. There are plenty of places that are perfect for a sunset proposal, however, one of the best options is to take a sunset cruise out of Lahaina Harbor. If you book a sunset cruise with Sea Monkey Private Charters – make sure you let us know you are planning to propose so we can make a few special arrangements for you. Sunset on the water aboard a luxury yacht never fails for romance. If you choose an earlier excursion with us – you can eat lunch or dinner and snorkel during the day then pop the question as the moon rises and the sun sets all the while cruising along the beautiful West Coast of Maui.

Give us a call today to make your proposal unforgettable!
