Attraction details
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).

We had a great time on our trip with Ocean Riders. The snorkeling around Lanai was wonderful and the Captain did a great job with everyone on board, even those of us that weren't that experienced! He maintained his distance with the whales, but they still got close to us. We even had one swim right under our boat!

Great views of the beautiful island of Lanai. Amazing snorkel spots. Great for spotting whales, there was one just beneath our boat! Very fun and exciting boat ride! The captain was very nice and caring!

We loved the trip so much the first time we took it that we decided to return for our wedding. Chad and his team were super accommodating and did not disappoint. The trip was even better the second time around. We chartered the boat for our family (and the minister!) at a very reasonable rate. The group was pretty diverse... More

This is the trip to do if you are looking to fit as much in a day as possible. There are three snorkeling stops, pods of dolphins, whales, and the beautiful coast of Lanai. I would say there is one great snorkel stop -- shark fin, one very good stop and one mediocre stop. This said, I would pay the... More

Ocean Riders is the most fun we've ever had on a Hawaiian adventure. Here's a "trip report" -- hope that it convinces you to share this great day with your friends and family. We knew that we wanted to do a day trip from West Maui -- our first inclination was to book one of the many snorkel boats that... More

We had another great adventure and snorkel trip with Ocean Riders. This was the third time I have done this trip with family and friends and the quality, attention to detail, professionalism, and fun times all have remained over the years. We saw many beautiful fish, an octopi, pillow star fish, and even one whale early in the season. Captain... More

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
