$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.
We went for a whale watch the first day they had available Dec 1st, since it was our last day in Maui. We were treated with quite a show from the young male whale! We saw a couple more whales as well, but we knew it was early in the season and were very pleased with what we saw! Our group liked being in the smaller boat. The crew of our boat was amazing, answering any and all questions we had about whales and anything else in the area. Super friendly and a true respect for the animals we were trying to view as well. Would highly recommend!
We chose Ultimate because it was affordable but we were blown away by the professionalism and our experience. We’ve been on the $$$ excursions and this trip matched in quality. The shorter 1.5 hour trip was perfect for our young boys and it we definitely got our money worth. The smaller boats also meant we got great photos and a personal experience. The crew was friendly, knowledgeable, and fun! If you’re looking for a great whale watching experience this is it!
This is the ONLY way to go whale watching. Been doing tours with this company for several years now. I would do it every day if able! The boats are great, the crew is great and very knowledgeable. Cannot recommend them more highly. No 2 whale watches are the same, no matter who you go with, but this company does a great job. Go early in the morning it's a great time to be out on the water with great views!
Had a great time going out with Brittany and Bo for a whale watch adventure. It was a great experience going out in a small boat and you can tell that they are passionate about what they are doing. Brittany was very conscientious about making sure we all saw whales and Bo provided some great commentary about the whales and why they come down to Hawaii. Highly recommended. We will be back.
HIGHLY recommend this small boat company. We have done we are watching a few times in various places around the world and I really enjoyed the small quaint feel of the boat much more than a larger boat because you really feel close to the animals and I love not having so many other people all fighting to see the animals up close. Amy was very knowledgeable and we saw groups of whales a few times during our trip. We saw LOTS of whales. There were groups with 4 whales together and dolphins. I never knew whales had a white fin that glows the prettiest blue color under the water. The whales swam to us right underneath our boat a couple of different times and you really got to see them up close. Wonderful experience.
