Paragon is in possession of one of 3 permits that were offered to bring guests to Lanai for snorkel activities. Manele Bay and Hulopoe Beach are considered marine preserves. The unspoiled reefs and land are a tribute to being privately owned. By keeping the number of visitors down, Lanai has flourished into one of the best-kept secrets in Hawaii with some of the most colorful reefs in the world. There was a time when Lanai was known for pineapples. During the 20th century Dole Pineapple bough the island and began planting pineapple on thousands of acres. It was a time of growth for Lanai. Bustling with workers from nations all over the world, all laboring in the fields producing the pineapple that gave Lanai its namesake, the Pineapple Island, Today Lanai is lightly populated with under 4000 residents. Lanai is owned by Larry Ellison who founded Oracle. Mr. Ellison has taken steps to improve the infrastructure of Lanai including Manele Harbor, the airport, and roads. He also turned his attention to the Lodge at Manele and the Lodge at Keole.

We had a great time whale watching with Sail Maui! Brian and Ben were great. Super informative, helpful, and had great service. The catamaran was in excellent condition and most importantly we saw tons of whales in a safe and respectful manner. I recommend Sail Maui if you are thinking of going out on the water.
If you book with company, just realize that they may cancel at the last minute.
At 5:45 P.M. the evening before our morning snorkel, tour operator called and said trip was canceled because they didn't have enough customers signed up. Better customer service would be: 1) cancel the trip at least 24 hours in advance so I have a chance to rebook with a different boat; 2) make an effort to provide other options at the same day/time, even if that involves referral to a competing company, or 3) run the tour even if the endeavor is not "profitable" for the company.
The staff was incredibly fun, unfortunately that’s the best thing I can say about our experience. We did a “sunset tour” which I put in quotations because we were already docked when the actual sunset occurred, even though the tour was billed as a sunset ride. My wife and I were also very disappointed that though we were told that whale watching would be included, when we saw whales jumping in the distance the crew made no effort to Move toward them to see more. This was neither a whale watch nor a sunset tour but a very expensive tour of the harbor with drinks included.
Great trip, super friendly staff. They were awesome with our 6 year old daughter. Trip to Lanai is a great way to spend the day!
We joined Sail Maui for the sailing trip to Lanai for snorkeling and beach time on Christmas day. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough wind to actually sail, but that did not diminish our good time at all. The crew was professional and very welcoming. Provided picnic lunches were excellent. I can't think of a single negative from our time on board the Paragon.
