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. Whale Watching tours from December through April from Maui Hawaii.

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

Captain Stephanie and first mate Sean made this exciting trip fun and entertaining. 3 good snorkel spots and a dolphin siting. The raft is fun and allows you to get up closer to the action than the larger boats do. Allows for only 15 passengers. Get ready to get really wet on the ride if the surf is up. Our... More

Our family had a wonderful snorkeling adventure with Hawaii Ocean Rafting. It was the first time my boys had been snorkeling and they were great with my boys! Our crew, Stephanie and Sean, were very nice, knowledgable, and did a great job of making our trip great!
