Maui Activities: Maui Water Activities & Ocean Sports, Lanai Snorkeling Tours from Maui
Hawaii Ocean Rafting leaves early on these fabulous Lanai snorkeling tours to take advantage of the calm waters crossing the channel in the morning. Hawaii Ocean Rafting on Lanai takes you around the north end of the island. Molokai is also so close, you can almost touch it. Here you will discover shipwrecks, blow holes, sea caves and hidden coves. Snorkeling with turtles, vast amounts of marine life on some of the most colorful reefs in Hawaii. You will encounter dolphins in the wild, pods of them. They hug the coast of Lanai, racing up and down the coast laughing and smiling all the time. A majestic species that in on the international endangered species list, the spinner dolphins have found a safe haven at Lanai. The raft will enter some of the largest sea caves and you can marvel at the blow holes that dot the remote coastline. You will see remote beaches which haven’t been visited for decades because there are no roads to them. Rugged, wild and beautiful is the north and west coasts of Lanai. Few will ever see these hidden treasures during their vacation. Take a day and discover Lanai.
The north shore of Lanai is isolated. There are no real roads that lead to the north or west shores. In fact, the only paved roads on Lanai are from the harbor to Lanai City and the two resorts on the island. That is one of the reasons why, everything to do with Lanai for snorkeling is so pristine. You can only reach the best snorkel sites on Lanai by boat. And most boats come from Lahaina, Maui, not from Lanai. Interesting huh?
The half-day rafting trip to Lanai with Hawaii Ocean Rafting snorkels the east and north coast of Lanai. Some of the snorkel sites visited are Sweetheart Rock, Shark Fin and of course Shipwreck Beach. Along the journey, you will encounter three different species of dolphins, Spinner, bottlenose and spotted dolphins. They are mostly found in pods, which are groups of dolphins ranging anywhere from a dozen to hundreds. Seeing dolphins in the wild is crazy. They swim and play in the wake of the boat. They always seem to be laughing with their eyes and smiling. Seeing dolphins will make your day.
