The half day snorkeling trip departs from Lahaina Harbor for the neighbor island of Lanai. Lanai offers some of the most pristine snorkeling around. On this trip we visit 2-3 unique snorkel spots where you can swim with Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles and explore the coral reefs. You'll also have plenty of opportunities for dolphin and whale watching. This experience is aboard our eco-raft which is a fast and fun ride. The trip includes a continental breakfast, snacks, water, juice, and soda. We provide all the gear and instruction you will need including snorkels, fins, and flotation (boogie boards, waist belts, and noodles). Check in at 7:30am, boat departs at 8:00am. We are a family-owned business that prides ourselves on small tours. Our boats tours are limited to 16 passengers and often go out with less.
I am the owner of Hawaii Ocean Rafting and have lived on Maui for over 43 years. I started this journey of the sea life on a Maui scuba boat where I eventually earned my Captain's license. I then gained experience working on sport fishing boats, Inter-Island sailboats, glass bottom boats, sea taxi's for the U.S NAVY, parasailing, and ocean rafting. I enjoy taking out new visitors to explore these beautiful oceans I get to call my workplace. I am proud to say Hawaii Ocean rafting offers an up close and personal experience with marine life unlike any other tour company out there!
Each guest gets a continental breakfast and snacks.
Each guest gets their own set of snorkel gear and a life vest. We also provide boogie boards, waist belts, and noodles.
We depart historic Lahaina Harbor early in the morning and jet over to Maui's close sister island, Lanai. On the way to our first snorkel spot, we'll take in breathtaking and dramatic cliff views from the water. We will snorkel 2-3 sites and explore the crystal clear waters surrounding the island. There is more sea life surrounding Lanai than Maui because there are significantly less people visiting the island.
You will need sun protection including sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats.
Due to potential weather situations this adventure is not for pregnant women or guests with back or neck injuries. And guests under 5 years old are not recommended.
