Once famous for its Dole pineapples, Lanai is now a privately owned island, offering a spectacular and uncrowded snorkeling experience; frequently including dolphin pods that like to follow along with the boat. Come aboard our 70 foot double-decker catamaran vessel, the Kaulana of Maui, where we sail to Lanai, from Maui’s Lahaina Harbor. Our two story vessel is ideal for watching spinner dolphins, Hawaiian green sea turtles, exotic sea life, and even whales (during season), from an ideal vantage point, up above the rippling waves of the ocean’s surface. Once there, snorkel about, in the warm clear waters, off the coast of Lanai, which is rated as one of the best snorkel spots in all of Hawaii.

The entire family will enjoy a fun, unforgettable snorkeling experience at a fantastic value.

Come Aboard

Come aboard our 70′ double decker catamaran vessel the Kaulana of Maui, where we sail you, from Lahaina Harbor to Lanai. Our two-story vessel is ideal for watching the sun come up, as the rosy pink highlights the beautiful West Maui Mountains. Along the way, enjoy a continental breakfast, before we anchor off the coast of Lanai’s shores, where you will be snorkeling in one of the best spots in all of Hawaii.

Gear Up and Get In!

Gear up, and get in! (Oh — don’t forget to try out the slide from the upper-deck to the water!) From snorkel masks and flippers to noodles and boogie boards, all of your equipment is included. However, you are more than welcome to bring your own gear, if you prefer it. For anyone who wants instructions on how to snorkel, our friendly and knowledgeable crew will be happy to assist! Have fun, as you see plentiful fish, eels, and vibrant coral.

After Lanai

After Lanai, as we head to a second location, for more snorkeling, you’ll be served a delicious BBQ lunch with unlimited water and soda.

Second Stop

Second stop, Coral Gardens or Turtle Town! Although, due to weather, the second stop is at the captain’s discretion, we love to take you where the turtles are.  Upon completion of the second snorkel, you’ll receive one complimentary cocktail (cocktails only available after snorkeling) that you can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride to Lahaina Harbor.

Return to the Harbor

Return to the Harbor, and enjoy the rest of your day! We’re always happy to give advice, if you have any questions about enjoying the Historic Lahaina Town, surrounding the Harbor.

Excellent trip, educational and more than worth the money. My family just finished the 6 hour Lanai Snorkel. Unfortunately, I could not go. There were 6 in our family who went today (December 29, 2017) and the smiles on their faces after the trip told it all. Then, I got a run down on all of the activities. It was spectacular.

I will do this trip next year.

Thanks for all your people who made this experience wonderful.

A BIG mahalo, Steve, for your warm comments!! So happy to hear that your ohana had a fun time, and that next time you’ll be able to join in on the fun! Thank you, again!

Thank you for a wonderful day. Troy was our amazing captain and his crew were top notch too. Our family couldn’t have imagined such a nice combination of whale watching , dolphin watching, hospitality and not even to mention the great snorkelling. Two different areas of Lanai!
Even on the way back to Lahaina Troy completely turned around our boat and followed a family of whales in the opposite direction. Troy nor the crew didn’t seem concerned with going over our expected return time if it meant more great whale watching for the passengers. Food was never ending…….
I will go on no more, but “hats off” and a Canadian giant thank you.
Highly recommended!
