Additional information

2nd Deck Jump Platform 💦

One of Quicksilver’s coolest features is its 2nd Deck “Jump For Joy” platform. You can jump right off the side of the boat! This option is perfect for guests who are not interested/ done with snorkeling and want to add a little excitement to their trip – take the plunge into big BLUE! Quicksilver is the only snorkel charter that goes to Lana’i that has a coast guard safety certified jump platform. There are easy access stairs right behind the boat to get back aboard after your leap! Epic for all ages!


Water Slide

Need a quick way into the water? Do your kids need extra entertainment on the Lanai snorkeling tour? Look no further than the Quicksilver’s water slide. It is located on the back of the boat, next to our easy staircase into and out of the water. You and your kids can go around and around, down the slide and up the stairs, repeat to infinity and beyond!

Guest Safety

Safety is always a priority. Quicksilver is a United States Coast Guard certified passenger vessel. We abide by all their applicable rules and regulations. We carry all the necessary safety equipment required by the United States Coast Guard. We also provide safety instruction and information about the snorkel spots and the boat. At each snorkel spot we always have a crew member in the water to act as a lifeguard and to lend general assistance with snorkel gear or to answer any questions.

Easy Ocean Access 🌊

There are two easy-access staircases that lead to our sea level swim platforms on the back of Quicksilver. No steep ladders to traverse. This makes getting in and out of the water quick and easy. Also, a crew member is almost always standing by on each swim platform to help you in and out of the water, provide flotation devices, and help you with your snorkel gear, digital cameras or any other items.


Flotation Devices 🏊

If you are not a strong swimmer, or you simply appreciate floating around, we provide several different kinds of flotation devices. Choose from life vests, float belts, boogie boards, and foam noodles – all of which are included on your tour. Wetsuits are great flotation devices too, and they’ll keep you warm! They are available to rent for an additional fee.

Shady Main Cabin 🌴

We understand you are more than ready to work on your tan, but FYI: when you’re out on the ocean, the sun comes from above and reflects off the water. Trust us, you’ll be delighted to have access to shade every once in a while. You don’t want to arrive at dinner looking like a lobster, do you?

Snorkeling Instruction 🤿

On our cruise out to Lanai, our crew members bring you all the snorkel gear you need. They also give instruction on how to properly fit and use your equipment. For those who need special assistance or a little more instruction, a formal Snorkel 101 class is taught by the captain aboard the boat, once you’re moored (parked) off Lanai. This is great for first-time snorkelers.


Smooth Ride 🛥️

One of our main focuses is passenger comfort. The Quicksilver was specifically designed for Maui’s weather and waves. The island winds add up throughout the day, which causes the water to be a bit frothy on our return trip. Our catamaran’s double-hulled design is largely above the wind chop. This allows the boat to avoid much of the rough water, and makes for a smoother ride.


Great Music 🎶

Our Lanai snorkeling playlist is a lot of fun! We’ve selected music from a range of decades to entertain everyone in your party. Rest assured, Jimmy Buffett and Jack Johnson are both represented!

Cancellation Policy

48 hours notice required for cancellation or reschedule.

So glad our family did this! Other family members paid a fortune to fly to another island to 'shark cage dive' and got 15 minutes of waves thrashing them against the cage. We actually swam with them (docile and beautiful and do not come anywhere near you) along with schools of beautiful fish and the majestic turtles. The turtles were absolutely incredible to watch in their natural habitat!! A solid hour in the water was just enough to not completely exhaust our family, or let us get sunburned!

The gear was quality and the crew totally made the experience! Micah, Cody, and Capt. Heather were so much fun! It was a little crowded once you got to the snorkel area and we kept running into people, but if you just relaxed and floated it was so amazingly peaceful. Remember to grab a noodle! It helps the floating and makes it less work, especially if you're not a strong swimmer.

One of the lesser expensive excursions, and ended up being one of the best highlights for our family of 4, with two teens!
