You can book directly at our website, and if you book you future trip before January 1st you can lock in this years prices. While you are researching you options and planning your vacations take a moment to look us up on tripadvisor. There are so many wonderful reviews that are also very thorough, they can help give you an idea of what to expect with us on your Lanai snorkeling adventure. We will begin whale watches on December 15th, but as the review below points out. the whales are already here. :


"Though early in the "whale season" we saw several humpback whales enjoying the beautiful warm waters of Au'au Channel. Dolphins, galore! Love the way they "rode the bow" of the boat with us half way to Lana'i. Both snorkeling spots were fun and did see many fish, even in spite of recent rains on Lana'i. Second spot, where the turtles go to the "turtle cleaning station" was the BOMB. I saw so many turtles, fish, and even an adult white tip reef shark while snorkeling with Sean. She was a magnificent animal. Not aggressive, not the monster people want us to believe. She checked us out and we did likewise, but never felt fearful for a moment. An amazing experience I'll never forget. Got to give it up for Sean, too, for getting my (non swimming, terrified of the water) husband out in a life preserver, with a mask, so he could enjoy Mother Nature's bounty first hand for his first time. He's now ready to learn to swim so he can learn to scuba! Thanks, crew! We had a blast. Highly recommend this trip. Worth every penny. Mahalo LeAnna and Sean and company."


"My husband and I went on the half day snorkel cruise on our honeymoon and it was absolutely amazing! Leigh Ann and Shawn were  a lot of fun and obviously very knowledgeable about the surroundings and various fish and other marine life. They took us to two very cool snorkel sites near the island of Lanai. We saw tons of dolphins that were so close to me I thought my foot was going to touch them from the side of the raft. We snorkeled with sea turtles and even saw a humpback whale. This was a very cool experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to Maui. There were a few other couples but also a family with two young children who also had a blast so appropriate for all ages! Many thanks to Mark, Leigh Ann and Shawn"


"We just arrived back from the half day snorkelling trip to Lanai with Hawaii Ocean Rafting and it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! Tom and Povi were our crew for the morning and they were excellent! They were very knowledgeable of the surroundings and wildlife and took the time to interact with each guest on the trip. This is a small tour (the morning we went there were 12 people) so there is plenty of room to move around the boat as you please. It was also one of the more reasonably priced trips that I found online.The snorkelling around Lanai was amazing! We were lucky to have a very calm day so the visibility in the water was excellent. The coral reef was beautiful and there were a TON of colourful fish. We were even fortunate enough to see an eagle ray (thank you Povi)! The next stop was to swim with the sea turtles. We came face to face with at least half a dozen turtles and were given plenty of time to watch these beautiful creatures swim around us. We also saw a couple of bottlenose dolphins which swam right beside the raft and at the last moment before the tour ended we came across a pod of spinner dolphins! They are absolutely amazing to watch and I will never forget the experience. The spinners put on quite a show! I have never seen dolphins close up in the wild so this is one of the things I was most looking forward to on our trip and it did not disappoint. Thank you so much Tom for being so persistent to find us the spinners!All in all we had an amazing day and recommend this tour to anyone travelling to Maui and looking for an excellent adventure! Thank you guys so much for the memorable experience, we will be back again!"
