Take a ride on Kainalu (The Ocean Wave), across the ‘Au’Au Channel to the island of Lana’i.
Home to Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins, miles of sea cliffs, inaccessible coastlines with sea caves, ancient Hawaiian burial sites, King Kamehameha The Great’s favorite fishing grounds, and many of Hawaii’s best coral reefs.
Each trip is unique and where we will snorkel depends on the wind, swell, and sea conditions. Our experienced crew will choose the best destinations for the day.
For the most personalized snorkeling experience, we carry onboard Cressi Dive Frameless Masks with dry snorkels and adjustable Long Blade Fins.
First-time snorkeler? No worries! Our crew is happy to give you an introduction course. All guests must be able to swim.
Haven’t snorkeled in a long time or are a little nervous? No worries! We have floatation gear for everyone and will take the time to give you a little refresher to help you enjoy the experience.
Snorkel all the time but have a few questions? Just ask. We’ll do our best to help you out.
On the surface, keep an eye out for Dolphins and Whales. Under the surface, keep an eye out for Turtles, Tropical Reef Fish, and a variety of corals.
We stop at 2-3 snorkel sites and serve snacks at our first location as well as lunch on board before heading back to Lahaina.
