Snorkeling and Whale Watching tours. Climb aboard our HI Tech Ocean Rafts and spend the day snorkeling the crystal clear waters surrounding the island of Lana’i. We encounter the Spinner Dolphins quite often on our excursions. We’ll spend time interacting with them as they frolic in the water. Continental breakfast, snack and cold drinks will be served throughout the day. Snorkel gear provided. This trip will be the highlight of your vacation. Departs daily from slip 8 Lahaina Harbor.

Our snorkel adventure was as good as we expected. We visited 4 spots on our trip around Lanai and saw some great sites. This all day trip is good from the standpoint that you are on a raft with 11 other people not on a boat with 100 others. The only downside is going the time of year that we... More

Shawn and Jake were so much fun!! Riding the huge ocean waves was exilerating and we just want to do it all over again. They brought us to a spot where a pod of spinner Dolphins were and we were lucky enough to get to swim nearby. If you want adventure, this is where to go. Bring sunscreen!!

We have been out with Hawaii Ocean Rafting several times and we always have a blast. I especially like when Sean is on the boat! We really enjoy his stories, knowledge about the islands, sea life, and snorkeling in the area. The boats are well maintained, clean, affordable and fun! Highly Recommended!

Had an amazing time snorkeling around Lanai with Hawaii Ocean Rafting! Jake and Sammy were super fun with loads of information about what we were seeing. We went to two sites, the visibility was brilliant! Saw loads of fish! We also saw tons of dolphins! 3 pods - spotted, bottle nose, and spinner! Because we were on the raft instead... More

Stephanie and Sean did a great job of making this a fun and memorable adventure. They both made this a combined tour and snorkeling adventure telling us tidbits about Bill Gates' wedding, who owned the island, and how to safely dive. We had originally signed up for a half day tour but Mark (owner) called the day before and asked... More

Sean and Stephanie were amazing on our snorkeling trip to Lanai. Saw tons of dolphins and went to 4 or 5 awesome snorkeling spots around Lanai. One of my favorite things we did on or trip to Maui.

My 10 year old daughter and I enjoyed tremendously our 1/2 snorkeling with Stephanie and Sean. They were more than accommodating. We stopped to look at the dolphins abd they were very safe and informative. I would highly recommend this activity.

My husband and I did the half day snorkel trip to Linai'i. With these guys you get a much smaller group (17 people on our trip) on a pontoon boat, compared to some of the other companies that take out gobs of people on big boats. Other good thing about going on a pontoon is that they can try way... More

This is the perfect company for a small intimate group. We only had 5 of us on our trip and we were able to see some great snorkeling sites around the island of Lanai without all the crowds that the trip to Molikini always has. Breakfast & lunch were included...we had 4 stops and some great stops in-between at a... More
