$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 have used this company for both whale watching and snorkeling on two separate occasions and thoroughly enjoyed both our trips with them. During the whale watching tour it was just my wife and I in April time frame and we got to see a couple whales, one even breached to finish out the tour. They were amazing with our young kids (6 & 9 years old) on the snorkeling trip who hadn't been snorkeling before and really helped us feel comfortable with bringing the kids on the boat and in the water. The employees are very knowledgeable and fun to be around. We definitely recommend Ultimate Whale Watch & Maui Snorkeling for anyone visiting Maui.
We had an amazing time on our trip back in March. Our guides where fantastic and we got to see a lot of whale activity.
The great thing about their boats are that they are close to the water. It offers a unique perspective as you are sitting at water level.
Check it out!
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.
Had an amazing day🤩
Amy the captain and Brittany her helper were very friendly at check in, very informative before boarding and fun to go out with. I felt safe at all times.
They both made the trip a great memory for me with beautiful snorkeling areas, great food and we got to see pod of spiner dolphins twice!
I highly recommend this tour 🤩
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!
