The ONLY Lanai snorkel tour leaving right from the beach in Ka’anapali. Your Lanai snorkel sail adventure departs every Tuesday and Friday morning in the sand behind Whaler’s Village and the Leilani’s restaurant.

As we set off to the island of Lanai, you will be offered a hot breakfast and coffee prepared by Chef Joey. While sipping your morning coffee you can take in views of Ko’oloawe and Lani and watch Maui fade away as we approach the secluded snorkel sites offered around the shores of Lanai.

While in the water you will be swimming with tropical fish, Honu (Hawaiianiian green sea turtles) and colorful reefs. Once back on board, you will enjoy a buffet lunch prepared by Chef Joey and will be served our premium beers, handcrafted cocktails and other soft drinks and juices as we set sail back to Ka’anapali Beach.

We will be using HD cameras to capture your Maui snorkeling adventure throughout your trip. We will display these photos and videos on our onboard TVs and you will have the opportunity to own these memories after your tour.

Fun trip and fantastic crew!

We booked about 2 weeks out for the Friday before Thanksgiving week. The weather wasn't looking great - high winds and potentially rough seas - but we headed down to the beach to check in. Peter was funny and engaging during his safety speech. He gave everyone the option to rebook because of the potential rough seas, but everyone stayed on. I think there was probably close to 30 people on board but it never felt crowded. The ride out to Lanai was not too choppy. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to get to the snorkel spot. We were served juice, coffee and a breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, and rice, which was quite good. On board they asked if anyone wanted to upgrade to try Snuba, s cross between scuba and snorkeling. The 3 of us (my husband, 9 year old daughter and I) were game, with two others. They only have room for 6. Our instructor Lars was nice and helped us get acclimated to it. What a fun experience! It was great to be able to stay under water for 30 minutes straight at about 15 ft. The visibility was pretty good, not excellent, because of the rough seas but we saw many fish and a turtle. On the way back the drinks were flowing and a delicious chicken with mac salad buffet lunch was served. The crew, especially James, were so nice and laid back. The ride going toward Maui was pretty rough. My daughter and I sat/laid down on the mesh area between the hulls. The crew warned us we would get wet. They weren't kidding! We were soaked and got bounced so many times, often to another part of the mesh area! It was fun and my daughter provided quite the laugh for many people. She was in a great spot once we got back near Ka'anapali when spinner dolphins were spotted. She was able to lay down and see them up close. What a great day we had. I would say that if you want more snorkeling time, you might try the West Maui trip as they stop in several spots vs just one going to Lanai. Also, book an excursion for early into your visit so in case the weather doesn't cooperate, you might be able to reschedule for a later day.
