Owner description: 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).

Becky and I have taken snorkel tours all over the world. This is, without any doubt, the best we've ever taken, so much so that we have returned to Maui and gone with Chad many many times. We've taken family and friends and they never fail to thank us for doing so.They provide a breakfast snack and a really good... More

We went out last week on this trip and it was amazing!! Aaron and Chad were our captains and did a fabulous job. Made 3 snorkel spots around the island of Lani and also stopped at a beach on the island also. It was a small intimate group and it was super fun! Lunch was nice and fresh and there... More

Aaron and Ian took us out to circumnavigate Lana'i yesterday and it was AMAZING. The snorkelling was beautiful. We saw Spinner Dolphins and Ian found us an octopus. We swam with a little Hawaiian sea turtle. Definitely a phenomenal experience. Aaron is hilarious and a fantastic boat captain. Extremely experienced and very confident in his care of all of us....

Aaron really pulled out all the stops to make the trip memorable and exciting. Not like your average tour guides that coral the group, he encouraged us to explore and stopped at three amazing locations. His knowledge of the island of Lanai and history of the shipwrecks along the way we're an added bonus. He even stopped as we took... 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
