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

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

This is a 7.5 hour trip around the island of lanai. We snorkeled 3x. We lunched in a bay that was dwarfed by the surrounding red cliffs. Aaron was the captain and he made incredible decisions of where to put down anchor. I have to admit the weather gods were on our side,clear & sunny. We anchored at Sharks Fin... More

If you have never taken an ocean adventure in maui, Ocean Riders should be your first choice. This trip is more adventurous than regular Maui tours, but completely worth it! The crew was great, they had a vast knowledge of the waters and knew the best snorkel stops. Would do this again!

My husband and I spent our 30th Anniversary on an amazing Ocean Riders adventure. Capt. Chad was a wonderful guide. We went around the island of Lanai snorkeling in 3 different secluded spots. Chad gave us alot of interesting history and facts about the island. We saw shipwrecks, awesome scenery and hundreds of spinner dolphins. When we stopped for lunch... More

My wife and I had a great time on the trip around Lanai. But I think we upset Pele, as after the last snorkel stop, my wife got injured by a small wave as she was walking on the boat. The boat rocked and as she tried to get her balance her ankle rolled and it looked like a bad... More
