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.

This was a terrific half day of being on the ocean, snorkeling, and seeing the dolphins!! Stephanie was our Capt. And Sean was our mate. They were friendly, informative and very patient with new snorkelers. Can 't say too much about how great our half day was. Completely recommend this crew and trip.

Capt. Stephanie and Sean were incredibly professional and all about giving the best possible experience for their customers!! They worked hard to show us 5 really cool spots on a half day tour....we saw two humpback whales, a large pod of spinner Dolphins, and 3 different spots for snorkeling!! Both Stephanie and Sean were great to talk with about the... More

With so many options for whale watching, I was drawn to this company because of the reviews and the price. Very reasonable! Since it is a small group, you really get to enjoy the views, ocean and tour. Now that I have been on this tour, I wouldn't want to be in a larger catamaran with 50+ fighting for a... More

We have been coming to Maui for 16 years and have taken a lot of tours. The 5 plus hour Lanai snorkel trip with Sean and Captain Stephanie was the best and most memorable. Not only did the crew find whales but were very selective on where we snorkled. My wife had never been able to actually participate with my... More

My husband, our teenage boys, and I had a wonderful snorkel trip with Hawaii Ocean Rafting on 4/10/2015. The crew was professional, but fun! They went out of their way to make sure everyone had a great time. We saw whales, dolphins, and a white-tipped reef shark. It was the highlight of our trip to Maui.

...will definitely book again! Grandkids loved putting faces in the water to commune with spinner dolphins, mama humpback whale & calf. Nothing like being up close and personal!

We had a great trip. There were only 2 other people on the boat with our family of 4 and Captain Jeff. We didn't know if we would see any whales since it was very late in the season. We actually saw 6 whales and 2 dolphins. The raft is so close to the water, the sightings are incredible! We... More

I did not want to book a whale watch tour at our hotel as I went down to the harbor to see what all the slips had to offer. Checked out several before I made my selection to go with the Hawaii Ocean Rafting because of price and only a limited amount of people per raft compared to the other... More

We just happened to come across Hawaii Ocean Rafting on a last minute whale watching excursion to Lahaina. We are so glad we did. Captain Stephanie was an amazing skipper. Her ability to spot the whales was incredible. We came across a mother and her calf who were extremely playful. Captain Stephanie shut down the engine near them and they... More
