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).

Captain Aaron and Ian were both informative and helpful. They adapted the day to fit the weather and water conditions. They held much knowledge regarding the history of the island of Lanai and obviously knew their way around the island. We enjoyed the swim to the beach as well as the snorkeling. Two highlights were the octopus that Ian pulled... More

We've snorkled a number of places on Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island and the snorkling on this trip was the best we've seen. We were "lucky" to have an average day of sea conditions, others who posted were not as fortunate. The seas were bumpy on our 70 mile voyage, but that added to the adventure. Captain Aaron... More

This is a wonderful trip. The boat is very nice and the crew is skilled and competant. They are also friendly and knowledgeable. They go around Lanai and stop 3 times to snorkel. Lots to see and the crew explains alot about Lanai and the reefs. So, it is educational as well as entertaining. One thing to be aware of:... More

We booked this snorkel trip with our five grand children and we were very dissapointed with Captain Aaron. He was rude to my grand Children and the trip was all about him and his ratings on this site, He barked orders to all of us includeing when we could use the bathroom at the dock. I think he forgets he... More

I have snorkeled in Hawaii before and in the Caribbean and in Cabo and this was the best ever. The day started off going in the opposite direction because of the weather and the first snorkeling spot was amazing, the second was good and the third had a wonderful reef. The day went so fast. We loved swimming to the... More

Great trip, great snorkeling, loved the boat...didn't get seasick. We will go again! We will tell others! Lanai is beautiful to see and one stop we made out of 3 made us feel like we were in an aquarium!

This was a really fun day, especially considering the circumstances. All week there had been flash floods and other conditions making it hard to find snorkel spots where the visibility was good. Captain Aaron was very entertaining and he really made the best of not-perfect conditions.His banter and positive attitude were great, and although the snorkeling wasn't as great as... More

This excursion was a highlight of our trip. We had 5 first time snorkellers ranging in age from 8 to 53, and everybody had a magical time. My 8 yr old daughter got so excited snorkelling that you could hear her exclaiming right out of her snorkel! We were brought to three beautiful spots by our guide, Aaron, who made... More

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!
