Ocean Riders – Circumnavigate Lanai
$149.00 BOOK NOW
A Maui rafting adventure to Lanai is something that you don’t want to pass up. In many people’s minds, Ocean Riders is the best rafting trip to Lanai because it circumnavigates the entire island for a full day of fun. Ocean Riders has been thrilling visitors with a high powered fun packed Lanai snorkeling trip for decades. This hard-bottomed inflatable boat takes the sea less traveled by circling all the way around Lanai. There are 3 different snorkel sites, all with brilliantly colorful reefs and teeming with the marine life of hundreds of species of fish. There are dolphins, green sea turtles, flying fish, a World War II shipwreck and sea caves. Do we have your attention yet!
During the course of the day, you will travel 70 miles further than any other rafting tour on Maui. You will see more, experience more, and be completely amazed. We have clients who come to Maui every year and each year they schedule this tour on Maui over everyone else. Some do it twice. That’s how good it is. I think one of the reasons so many folks enjoy this trip is because deep down inside, Ocean Riders is a rogue snorkel trip. They slip into the sea caves on the north shore and do a remote landing at shipwreck beach. The beach can only be reached by four-wheel drive so the chances of seeing anyone there are as remote as the beach. Further down the Leeward coast are blowholes, tidepools. More sea caves and hidden coves. Here is a great spot for lunch which gives you a chance to explore the wild side of Lanai. Ocean Riders is family owned and operated. They were the first to begin rafting trips to lanai back in 1988. The raft is a rigid-hull inflatable that is commonly known as H.B.Is which is the boat the USS Coast Guard uses for search and rescue operations. Ocean Riders is the only company on Maui that uses this style of raft
For you, that means a lot. The hulls are much heavier than other rafts which translates into a smoother ride. The hull is over 1000 pounds heavier than anyone else. Because the hull is heavier, it doesn’t bounce over the swells. It cuts right through them.
This type of inflatable raft with rigid a rigid hull is simply the best for rafting Hawaiian waters. The raft is 30 feet in length, powered by twin 250hp Mercury outboard engines. It has more power than any other raft on Maui. Ocean riders is certified to take 22 passengers, but keep the size to 18 for comfort. Half the raft is covered with padded seating for 9. The other seats are along the hull
Ocean Riders is unique as they are the only snorkel company that circumnavigates Lanai on a daily basis. Other snorkel trips on Maui have tried, but they aren’t nearly as fast and durable as Ocean Riders.
