Best Sunset Catamaran Cruise - Maui or Oahu?

We are looking for a sunset catamaran cruise to do with our younger kids (ages 4 to 9). Not looking for food or drinks really, just a neat cruise where the kids can try sitting on a net while cruising. Any recommendations? We are staying in West Maui in Kapalua and in the Ko Olina area in Oahu if this helps with recommendations.

Here is the response I gave on the Hawaii forum, just for reference for other posters.

With the kids, I'd check out Paragon, as they leave from Lahaina Harbour. Easier for the kids to get on the boat.

Be aware that most of the sunset sails offer drinks and pupus.

If you were staying in Honolulu/Waikiki - this would be a tougher choice.

Ka'anapali is a great location for a sunset sail! And handy, too. I recommend Trilogy.

Kids get on cats at the beach fine, all year round! In fact, it's fun to most of them. If it's too rough the boats will either change location or ferry you out on a Zodiac (also good fun).

Look at Gemini, Teralani, Trilogy, Hula Girl to start. Costco has discount cards for Teralani, too.

Oh--forgot to add that Sail Maui (aka Paragon) doesn't have a net.
