Description: The Original Lanai tour established in 1988. Only Ocean Riders...
The Original Lanai tour established in 1988. Only Ocean Riders circumnavigates the island of Lanai on a continual, year round basis. Nobody knows the island better. Others have tried imitating our trip but it cannot be duplicated. Our boat is the perfect vessel for handling what Lanai has to offer and the others just can't or won't do what we do. No timers to call you back from the water and cutting your time short (the other tours can't say that).

This is an exceptional experience for those who love boating and snorkelling. Chad operates a safe and sturdy inflatable craft into locations inaccessible by the much larger catamarans offering similar services. The snorkelling locations were very clear water so marine life was visible at significant depths. Lunch was sandwich affair at which you made your own which was better than... More

My husband and I like getting off the beaten trail and doing our own thing. Ocean Riders took us to the back side of Lanai (very rarely traveled) and hit 3 different snorkel stops. Plan for a full day of fun! 7.5 hours actually--they bring lunch and everything! Super fun jet boat, friendly hosts ranks this at a 10!

This tour is an absolute blast if you are adventurous! My sister and I absolutely loved it. We enjoyed the remote snorkel sites where we were the only people snorkelling. We swam with sea turtles, many types of fish, and held an octopus. The highlight of our trip was seeing bottom noise dolphins that swam with the raft! Aaron and... More

This trip is well worth the money. Very few (I saw one other boat) take you around the entire island of Lanai. This means the snorkeling locations are have not been disturbed like the other tourist snorkeling locations. The snorkeling was second to none, making Molokini look completely average. Aaron, our captain, was great and ensured everyone on board had... More

Great time on this trip! The best snorkeling we've seen in Hawaii and even an octopus encounter. Tour guides were great. If you want to get up close and personal with nature and do something a bit different than the typical tourist tour, this one is for you!

This was an amazing trip! Chad and Ian made sure of it! We had a great day out on the water and got to snorkel in some amazing spots! We were also visited by some sea turtles and whales...which was amazing. It was wonderful to be on a boat with a smaller group. The coast of Lanai is absolutely breathtaking... More

A nice break from traditional catamaran snorkeling tours, Ocean Riders and Captain Aaron will introduce you three great sites with plenty of marine life and coral with fantastic visibility. Captain Aaron knows his boat and Lanai with safety and a sense of humor always on the forefront. An experienced mariner from the North Atlantic to the South Pacific, he will... More

My wife and I had a great time with Chad and Ian. They were very knowledgeable and the sights were beautiful. The snorkeling was great at 3 different spots. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a more exciting ride with a smaller group. The ride was rough at times in wind tossed swells but still a great activity.

What a perfect day we had! Even though we didn't get to the other side of Lanai island due to weather conditions, we still had lots of fun with Aaron and Ian. They chose fantastic places for snorkeling and we even saw dolphins. Thank you guys.

My wife and I took a trip with ocean riders and had one of the best experiences of our lifetime. My wife is a very an experienced snorkeler and they spent time with her to make her feel comfortable inside and outside the water. I myself have been on many different snorkel trips and have never seen such beautiful scenery.... More
