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 stayed in Kihei and even with the early morning and 40 minute drive to get to Lahaina, this was AMAZING. We loaded into the boat, crossed the channel, and passed two ship wrecks before stopping at our first snorkel spot. The water was quite...More

We did this tour on 4/26/14 and had such a great time. We purposely chose a unique snorkel trip, on a small boat and going somewhere most other folks didn't go like Molokini. While yes, the snorkeling was fantastic, getting a chance to see the...More

The day didn't look that good to start, as we were pelted with rain as we crossed the channel (though they did hand our rain jackets), but the skies soon opened and we were blessed with a sunny day. We even lucked out this late...More

When we had gone in Jan 2017 it was $139 US and you arrive at the marina at 6:30 in the boat just after 7 am and return between 3 & 4 pm depending on the day and what you see. They provide lunch.
