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.

These guys are the BEST! We had been on one of their trips seven years ago and they were our first stop when we traveled back to Lahaina! Mona got us our tickets on site and we snacked on pineapple and cake while we waited for the tour to start. It's migration season so there were lots of whales out, but a good captain is essential and our captain - Captain Jeff and assistant Angela - were awesome! They helped everyone relax and get ready for a great time, and we saw tons of whales!! We had a very energetic baby that must have breached 8 times while we were hanging around the area they were in. Captain Jeff wanted to give the momma and baby a break so we went looking for more and did we ever find them! We had a huge momma (or male escort) breech three times in front of us and it was magnificent!! Then her baby followed suit and practiced their breech several times ... truly magnificent. Angela and Capt Jeff shared all kinds of knowledge with us, and their respect for these beautiful animals was greatly appreciated. Will be back for sure - probably before we leave this vacation! Thank you MONA, CAPTAIN JEFF, AND ANGELA!!

Great outing with the boys of Hawaii Ocean Rafting - we found the whales right off the start on the 7:00 am trip 2-22-20. Great information and knowledge about the whales and kept us on the downside of the sun so we could take photos when they showed up. I would recommend these folks as a first rate group - Mahalo

I booked this knowing that whale watching is a great thing to do on Maui. My girlfriend and I ran into car trouble and so had to call Mark. We explained our situation and that we were going to be late. Mark understood and let me know that it would be alright to reschedule us for a different time. That was my first indication of how awesome this was going to be. Nice people running a great operation.We got to the wharf and the staff was friendly and helpful. Sean and Angela were onboard with us during the excursion. They were knowledgeable, welcoming and extremely professional. They explained facts about the whales, made sure to answer all our questions and make us feel safe. I highly recommend them!

What an amazing afternoon! We received this excursion as a gift from our daughter who lives on Island ... she said it was the best and she did not disappoint! I wish I remembered the names of the Skipper and the Guide, because they were both so knowledgeable and personable. And, I know this is a small thing, but it stood out, they were asked about other companies and how they compared. Their answer was they are all friends on the island, they share information, and they support each other. I don't know if that is true or not ... but I thought that was such a classy answer and I love it that two women will represent us in that way. But on to the trip ... I felt safe, it was fun running around on the ocean, and wow, are those whales incredible! Yes, I wish one would have decided to come over to take a closer look at us as I saw in a picture, but I have no complaints at all. Everywhere we turned we saw splashes, tails in the air, mommies with their babies. Honestly, just being in their presence was was enough for me. I felt honored. Two hours was the perfect amount of time. I recommend highly and would go again in a heartbeat.

What a great snorkel trip we had. Our guides were excellent. Provided a lot of knowledge about the area and took us to great snorkel spots. We had the good fortune of being able to view humpback whales up close which was awesome. While this was a snorkel trip it turned into the BEST whale watching trip ever. Snacks on the boat were perfect. Everything about the adventure was great. We will do this again for sure with this company the next time we are in Maui.

Paul and Captain Sean are amazing and fun! I had the BEST Lanai Snorkel trip today where I saw Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins and had the most extremely awesome up close Humpback Whale encounter!! They came right up to our boat, two young males and looked right at us for a long time!! It was an experience I will never forget!

I cannot say enough about Captain Sean and Miss Noni! They gave my family and I a once in a lifetime day, complete with fish, sharks, turtles, dolphins and amazing reefs. The personalized service was better than any other snorkeling trip we have been on. Noni took our boys under her "water" wing and showed them how amazing the ocean can be. The added bonus of seeing a submarine emerge from the depths was fantastic. Thank you so much for an absolutely amazing day and for taking such great care of the boys! We will remember it forever!Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!!
