What You Can Expect

Lanai Island Dolphin and Snorkel Cruise from Maui

Kaulana Double Deck Catamaran

From Lahaina Harbor, embark on a journey to the island of Lanai that sits on the western horizon. Home to only a few thousands residents and miles of untouched shoreline, Lanai is a sliver of the white sand, palm-fringed, Hawaiian Islands of old. Here on the isolated East Lanai coastline, sea turtles regularly surface for air over colorful coral reefs, and schools of bright, tropical fish swim casually through turquoise waters.

The tour begins with a 45-minute cruise from Lahaina Harbor, during which time you might spot dolphins or Humpback whales in winter. While crossing the channel, enjoy a leisurely continental breakfast that’s served with fresh island juice, and prepare to splash in the warm blue waters that line the East Lanai coast. Once the boat is tied up to a mooring, spend between 2 and 2.5 hours exploring the coral reefs, or maybe taking multiple runs on the water slide off of the boat.

On the motor back towards Lahaina Harbor, this Lanai snorkeling tour breaks out the BBQ and cooks up a filling lunch, which is served with sweeping ocean views of the towering West Maui Mountains.

We totally loved the Snorkeling experience. It was our first time and we had the best crew to help us non swimmers experience snorkeling without any hiccups. We called them a day prior to check for a good parking spot nearby and Blossom was very helpful in letting us know about a parking lot nearby where we could get full day parking at a reasonable cost. The captain was a very nice lady, she gave non swimmers a special lesson and tips on how to snorkel. Sorry can't recollect her name. Since my husband was buddying my son and I was too afraid to go all by myself another crew member who was from Alaska and it was his first day volunteered to help me and asked me to hold on to the boogie board so I cud experience snorkeling. Had it not been for him I wud have never got a chance to experience the beautiful marine life below.We gotta see almost a dozen Dolphins swim past out boat and a bunch of Turtles too. It was truly a breathtaking experience.Not to forget the warm suit they let us rent for 10 as well as the warm BBQ burgers we relished post snorkeling. We were so glad to have choosen Viator for this once in a lifetime experience. Highly recommend this cruise.

Awesome day!! Super relaxing. The captain and crew were excellent. The snorkeling was amazing. Our 9 and 10 year old absolutely loved snorkeling and then jumping off the dock and sliding off the slide. Great way to explore Hawaii and get a little exercise to boot!! One tip: feel free to bring clothing to change into. We went on board with as little as possible including towels, and there was totally enough space to stash things change clothes.

Snorkelling was fun and we got to see whales and dolphins along the way. The crew was top knotch and efficient. Tons of food that was delicious, more than we anticipated. There are a lot of people on the boat so it isn and #39;t intimate, but the 2 snorkel sites and the beauty surrounding made a great day.

This trip was awesome! The crew were young and enthusiastic, and seemed determined to find the perfect spots for us to snorkel! We were taken out to Lanai for a great hour near the cliffs, and then back to a ruined pier outside of Lahaina for some more snorkeling. On our trip out to Lanai were were surrounded by a pod of dolphins, which was a truly magical experience. In the water, we saw many sea turtles and innumerable fish. I saw one crewmember helping two ladies who were having a really hard time with seasickness but were determined to get in the water. He allowed them to hang on to his surfboard and 'snorkel' while hanging on. Really kind and considerate staff, who obviously love their jobs in this beautiful place. The boat was a real workhorse, so don't expect any glamour on this trip! If you want to see some real beauty - even if you have never snorkeled before in your life!
