I had originally snorkeled with this outfit 11 years ago and loved it, but this trip was so much better. Snorkeling was the best I have done (Manele Bay), saw tons of fish, sea turtles and whales. Jake and Sammi were lots of fun and very helpful. Can't wait to go back!

Jeff was our captain and he was awesome, his personality is great and he is very knowledgable, we went for a whale watch with another company and ended up going back with Jeff because the experience with him is awesome. The girl with him ( I can't remember her name) was excellent as well. I would recommend the whale watch... More

Did the half-day Dolphin/Snorkel tour with Capt Steph and her able mate Sammi. Equipment was first rate and Sammi spent extra time successfully fitting my "problem" feet. Did not see any dolphins but did see whales on 3 occasions. The first time we spotted a pair and Capt Steph stopped, one of the whales approached us and dove under our... More

We went on a snorkelling tour with Captain Stephanie and Sean, it was fantastic! We would recommend this company to anyone! The boat is small so even though it was full it was only a group of 17 people. Stephanie and Sean were very knowledgable and lots of fun. We saw whales at the start and end of our trip,... More

Saw a whale breaching, spinner dophins, reef sharks and beautiful colorful fish! Great snorkeling areas (loved the 'fin)! Shawn and Captain Stephanie gave us a day to remember! We explored caves, visited shipwrecks and navigated the whole island of Lanai. Would certainly recommend this to anyone wanting a unique snorkeling experience.

Last year my best friend and I found this little rafting trip and we loved it so much we went on it twice. This year we knew we just had to go back, and again we weren't disappointed. Because of the size of the boat, you're basically guaranteed to have a small number of people on board, which makes it... More

I went out somewhat apprehensive, my last snorkel experience was not so fun (in the Bahamas). Had a super time with Jake and Sammi on Thanksgiving Day! They fully advised about rough water and offered a great alternative trip rather than going to Lanai which turns out the other snorkel boat trips did as well. Great snorkeling, wonderful calm water... More

My sisters and I have gone on more snorkel trips than we can count. THIS trip was the best ever, bar none. Ours was a small trip, with about 12 other snorkelers, on a Zodiak raft, a first for us. The captain and first mate were very knowledgeable and ready, on this day, to checkout the first whales of the... More

We weren't so sure about this tour when the staff seemed so casual about going out with a hurricane approaching, but once we got out of the harbor, we found that Justine clearly knew what she was doing and wasn't going to take us into unsafe waters. Instead, she showed us the coast of Lanai and found a huge dolphin... More

My family went to Hawaii for my mom's 50th birthday and she wanted to go snorkeling. We stumbled upon Hawaii Ocean Rafting and couldn't be happier with the outcome. Captain Stephanie and Sean were so awesome! They were both super knowledgeable about the area and finding the best snorkel spots. Not to mention the AMAZING school of dolphin we found... More
