$139.00 BOOK NOW
Ultimate Rafting and Snorkel is truly an Ultimate Rafting trip. It is a one of a kind Maui snorkeling and rafting tour. With 3 Lanai snorkel sites and the dolphins you’ll see along the way, there is no better way to get up close and personal with dolphins or whales (seasonal). You will snorkel at some of the finest reefs on Lanai teeming with marine life. Take your snorkeling adventure beyond the usual and explore Lanai with Ultimate Rafting and Snorkel.
They’re known as Ultimate Rafting Adventures because it’s the ultimate Lanai snorkel tour. Some snorkel spots on Maui are tame, like Molokini. Lanai is wild, remote, unspoiled and best of all, there are no crowds.
It takes about 45 minutes to travel the channel from Maui to Lanai. Your journey will take you to two or three snorkel sites along the coast of Lanai. Specific adventures with Ultimate Rafting and Snorkel changes according to the ocean currents like everyone else. They zoom north to the isolated regions of Lanai that few get to experience. Here you will enter sea caves, see blow holes and snorkel won some of the finest reefs in the world. There are shipwrecks, rusting from decades of being battered by the sea. Most have been there since World War II. They were blown off course during storms and sit, a reminder of the power of nature.
There are dolphins, turtles, flying fish and so much more. I think the finest snorkeling in Hawaii can be found in Manele Bay. This is the last snorkel site you will experience during the day. Its also the best. Like an aquarium, Manele Bay is a living example of a healthy reef. Exploding in colors, teeming with hundreds of varieties of fish, both big and small, Manele Bay set the standard for snorkel trips on Maui.
It’s been over 20 years since Ultimate Rafting first made the journey across the channel to Lanai. During that time, Ultimate Rafting has awed thousands of guests with the wonders only found on Lanai. They discovered the best Lanai snorkel sites long ago, then sticking with the best through the years has earned them the recognition of one of the best rafting trips on Maui
During the winter months, the Humpback Whale makes its annual journey to Maui from the cold waters off the coast of Alaska. This time of year is always exciting for snorkeling on Lanai. You will see whales and Ultimate Rafting will provide you with an ultimate whale watch. It won’t be nearly as long as booking a Maui whale watching tour, but you will get your fix. Then it’s off to your snorkel adventure.
We know first hand that the service is awesome, the snorkel sites provide a day packed with fun and excitement.
Ultimate Whale Watch and Snorkel is owner operated with over 20 years of snorkeling adventures on Lanai to their credit. The snorkeling reviews are great and the trip is an exceptional value.
Built similar the rafts the USS Coast uses, Ultimate Rafting offers a smooth ride with the ability to scoot across the channel quickly. Certified for 24 passengers, the guest count is kept small for comfort. As most rafts, this one has a shaded area and easy access to the water from the rear of the boat.

6 HOUR TRIP
Destination: Island of Lanai, exploring 3 snorkel spots, looking for remote areas with the best snorkeling for that day. Dolphins are the priority in choosing the direction we go.
I absolutely loved this snorkeling trip. Small and personable group, dolphin and turtle sightings, snacks, drinks and most of all Vinny and Tiffany. First mate Vinny instantly greeted me with a very warm welcome, got me all set up and answered every question. Captain Tiffany was just as warm and friendly and very accommodating.. Ive done the large snorkel trip on the big boat to Lanai, it was nice just too many people, 70. Ive also done a medium sized boat trip to Molokini, no marine life and still too many people 36. Ultimate was by far the best choice for myself, less rigid, more spontaneous on where to go to see the most marine life. Next time I'm in town I will do this trip again.
Great experience, got to see really cool wildlife and our tour guides were super friendly and informative. Vini and Peter were fantastic! We got to see spinner dolphins and false killer whales from inside the raft, then snorkeled with a bunch of other beautiful fish. I highly recommend the experience!
My wife & I had an excellent trip with Ultimate Whale Watch & Maui Snorkeling. Peter & Vinnie area great crew and very informative about the Hawaiian Islands, the reefs we visited and also local marine life. We spent over an hour at the coral beds to the east of Lanai and this was one of the best snorkeling experiences my wife & I ever had. On the return trip we took a 'blue water' swim in the channel and also saw two separate pods of dolphins, one pod of spotted dolphins and a much larger pod of spinner dolphins. An awesome way to spend a morning, we thoroughly enjoyed our time and can't recommend Ultimate Whale Watch & Maui Snorkeling highly enough. We'll be back next March for whale watching season. Can't wait.
1000% recommend this awesome family owned business!! Highlight of our Maui vacation! Brittany was our captain and was super funny and cool. Vini was also an awesome guy who was super helpful. They honestly made the experience more fun!
We got to snorkel twice! Saw the most beautiful reefs, tons of beautiful fish, and saw 4-5 sea turtles!! I even got to pet one!
Then on the dolphin tour of it we saw probably 100 dolphins!!! They were super active, jumping all around! It couldn’t of been better! They also provided good snacks and drinks! If you’re wanting to snorkel and see dolphins don’t go anywhere else but here!!
Worth every penny. We had a group of 16 attend. Amy and Brittany were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They answered our questions and promptly distributed clean snorkel gear. They knew every fish we came across and gave us fun facts along the way. The coral was alive and well, as were the plentiful fish and dolphins that we saw. They handled the boat skillfully and monitored us for safety while we snorkeled. Safety is certainly a priority! That was much appreciated. Also, the snacks were delicious! Water, soda, cookies, fresh local fruit, potato chips. Very hospitable. Overall, what a wonderful experience! I encourage anyone to come!
