Start your Lanai Snorkeling Trip with Kona coffee, passion orange juice and ice water during check-in at Slip #11 in Lahaina Harbor. Souvenir photographs are taken by a professional photographer when you board our Explorer Super Raft. After leaving Lahaina Harbor, we head across the Au’au channel to the island of Lanai for snorkeling. Two snorkel sites are selected by the captain to provide the clearest and calmest ocean conditions. Snorkel gear, instructions and safety tips are provided by our experienced captain and crew. Spinner and Bottlenose Dolphins are often encountered off the island of Lanai. We see lots of tropical reef fish, green sea turtles and occasional manta rays at the snorkel sites.
Cruise the West Maui Coastline to a fabulous snorkel site where you swim & snorkel for over one hour with tropical fish over a colorful coral reef and maybe even see green sea turtles, spotted eagle rays, and moray eels. In transit, you may encounter Spinner & Bottlenose Dolphins. We supply quality snorkel equipment and swim noodles and serve tropical snacks and juices, sodas, and bottled water throughout the trip.
Snorkel site options going north include Cliff House, Kapalua Bay, and Honolua Bay Marine Preserve. Heading south the main destination is Olowalu Reef and then returning to Lahaina Town and possibly Mala Sunken Wharf is known for its turtle town. Our experienced captain selects the best site depending on that day’s sea and wind conditions (Captain’s Choice).
The 50-ft “Explorer Super Raft” (the largest in Hawaii) is fast and comfortable with the “Cadillac Ride” of a stable deep V-hull craft and has plenty of padded seats and a large bimini top for lots of shade. Our custom-designed vessel even has an onboard marine head/restroom, large swim step, two wide loading ladders, and a freshwater rinse shower.
Enjoy ocean-level whale watching on our Explorer Super Rafts.
Our 50 ft. Explorer Super Rafts with the CADILLAC RIDE are the largest in the state of Hawaii (USCG certified to carry 42 passengers but we limit our trips to 36 passengers for comfort). Explorer Super Rafts are fast, fun & comfortable vessels allowing more time to whale watch and less time traveling to and from our leviathan friends.
During Whale Season (December – April) we operate two hour guaranteed sighting Whale Watch Adventures. Our Explorer Super Rafts depart Lahaina Harbor, Front Row Slip 11 up to 3 times per day.
