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).

All day adventure aboard fast fun boat. Totally circles the island of Lanai, with a quick look at the shipwrecks on the north side on to a secluded beach. Then they take you to some nice private snorkel spots, where the water is so clear you can see over 100 feet away, while in a small group of people. (only... More

This is an adventurous trip If that is what you are looking for you will be pleasantly surprised. It is a long bouncy day on a small boat. You are going all the way around the Island of Lanai. Even on the calmest of days at some point it will get rough and the boat ride will be wild. Do... More

We had a wonderful time with Capt Chad. Not another soul around on the backside of Lanai. Amazing snorkeling. Highly recommend!

All day trip. The boat was comfortable considering it was a raft type boat. Went all the way around the island. Stopped at a deserted beach to swim. Stopped at 3 snorkeling spots. The last was amazing. Like being in a fish bowl! Had a nice spread for lunch. Worth it!

8 hours, fully circumnavigating Lana'i, snorkeling at three different spots, served breakfast snacks and more lunch than you can eat, all done on a mad Zodiac size boat zooming along high cliffs and through ocean spray - it can't get any better. Wait, and all for $140? Get out of town! I've personally worked on a boat that just took... More

This trip was awesome. You meet Captain Chad and Ian at Mala Ramp early in the morning and they go over all the safety instructions and make sure everyone is comfortable. The ride out to the island can be rough but that is part of the fun. It's an adventure tour folks. We saw old ships left out in the... More

This is a difficult review to write. We chose this trip for the snorkeling, over a trip to Molokini. And the snorkeling wasn't great. On a previous Maui vacation we did Molokini and it was much better - in water clarity and both number and variety of fish. Is that Ocean Riders fault? The ocean changes, wind and wave conditions...

Capt Chad and crew were incredible, only agenda was a safe trip with loads of HIGH adventure. The boat was fast and we circumvented all of Lanai, landed once, snorkled three times (like in an aquarium) and had a encounter with about 30 spinner dolphins! Best trip for the money and we've done many of them on all the Islands

I've been to Maui dozens upon dozens of times and there is nothing I recommend more than this adventure! I love it! Done it 3 times thus far, and when I return in July I will do it again. Always awesome. I've learned in life that nothing lives up to the hype, this trip does.

Captain Chad is the owner and he typically will lead the trip. He is a great guy and wants to make sure everyone has a great time and gets there money's worth. You go to the Mala boat ramp (with all day, free parking) to meet Chad and the boat. He will check you in and provides some fruit and... More
