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). « less

I went on the trip with a friend visiting Maui. She had never been snorkeling from a boat or been to Maui before. I've been on quite a few to Lani but I have to say this was the best by far! The snorkel spots were all amazing but the crew really made the trip. The captin is hilarious and... More

Having done a catamaran trip to Lanai I was looking for something more adventurous. Ocean riders provided exactly that. If you have issues with being out on potentially rough ocean on a zodiac that bounces across the waves, extended sun exposure and peeing in the ocean then this isn't the trip for you. If you can deal with the above,... More

Me and my husband did the Circumnavigate Lana'i in July and it was spectacular! The snorkel spots were excellent, the lunch was delicious and far better then I expected, and we were lucky enough to see bottle nose dolphins as well as spinner dolphins. The boat ride was also not as bad as I feared either. Reading some reviews I... More

We have been to Hawaii 15 times over the years and thought we had done every adventure the islands had to offer. Boy were we wrong! We were on a family and friends vacation and wanted to do something new. We found Ocean Riders 7.5 hour snorkel adventure, Circumnavigate Lanai and decided to give it a try. Let me first... More

Yesterday I took another trip with Ocean Riders. I think this makes seven trips for me over the last two decades ... I've lost track. I'll be back for another trip as soon as possible. Chad and Aaron have taken over the business from the beloved Rick and Patty, and they do the same wonderful job of keeping passengers safe,... More

This was the best boat/snorkel trip I have ever done in my 15 years of coming to Maui. I strongly recommend this activity to others.

With 2 teenagers, this was the perfect snorkeling adventure! It combined an exciting, fast zodiac ride with beautiful scenery and amazing snorkeling.... It was a wonderful way to see Maui and Lanai. Aaron and Chad provided some history of the island and showed us sea life as well. Riding along with the dolphins was a great way to end the... More

The weather was beautiful and Aaron and Chad were wonderful! The clarity of the water at the places that they took us was beyond beautiful! We even got to see dolphins after our 3rd snorkel site! Lunch was good but could have been a little bit better - we had lunch meat sandwiches and pasta salad. We never felt rushed... More
