Description: 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).

This was an amazing trip! Chad and Ian made sure of it! We had a great day out on the water and got to snorkel in some amazing spots! We were also visited by some sea turtles and whales...which was amazing. It was wonderful to be on a boat with a smaller group. The coast of Lanai is absolutely breathtaking... More

A nice break from traditional catamaran snorkeling tours, Ocean Riders and Captain Aaron will introduce you three great sites with plenty of marine life and coral with fantastic visibility. Captain Aaron knows his boat and Lanai with safety and a sense of humor always on the forefront. An experienced mariner from the North Atlantic to the South Pacific, he will... More

My wife and I had a great time with Chad and Ian. They were very knowledgeable and the sights were beautiful. The snorkeling was great at 3 different spots. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a more exciting ride with a smaller group. The ride was rough at times in wind tossed swells but still a great activity.

What a perfect day we had! Even though we didn't get to the other side of Lanai island due to weather conditions, we still had lots of fun with Aaron and Ian. They chose fantastic places for snorkeling and we even saw dolphins. Thank you guys.

My wife and I took a trip with ocean riders and had one of the best experiences of our lifetime. My wife is a very an experienced snorkeler and they spent time with her to make her feel comfortable inside and outside the water. I myself have been on many different snorkel trips and have never seen such beautiful scenery.... More

My husband calls this the trip of a lifetime, but I am still speechless, overwhelmed with all we saw and did in one day with Ocean Riders. The scenery was breathtaking. The wildlife that we saw was incredible. The companionship was a blast. And the boat ride was more exciting than any adventure park could ever provide. Arron and Ian... More

This was by far the best excursion out of the 7 we booked to do in Maui. We were a little nervous about the warning for die-hard adventurers only but man oh man I'm so glad we didn't chicken out. Aaron was awesome and the boat ride was thrilling. We saw whales, a pod of spinner dolphins, twice!!!, swam with... More

My buddy Kevin booked us on an all day (6:00 to 2:00) trip to raft around Lanai. Couldn't ask for a better day. We snorkeled the north side and saw a bunch of turtles hanging around. Came up on a family of whales. had a nice swim to shore on the island. The crew was great and very easy going.... More

Just returned from a trip around Lanai. Chad and Ian were so great! Knowledgeable, personable and nice! Three absolutely beautiful snorkeling locations. I was a beginner and I was snorkeling within 10 min. Whales, octopus, beautiful fish and history of the island. I highly recommend. We were a little hesitant because we had to be at the wharf at 6:30... More

It started chilly and over choppy water over the channel. I could really feel the boat going up and down over the waves. I was fortunate that rain jackets were provided to me and my seven year old daughter (this wasn't mentioned on the brochure or website). We saw two different wrecked ships from the raft, which was new to... More
