Lanai Island Snorkel Catamaran

Dive into the heart of an untouched marine ecosystem with the Lanai Island Snorkel Catamaran Tour. This mesmerizing journey from Ma’alaea Harbor to the pristine waters off the neighboring Lanai Island. Once onboard, you'll be treated to a day filled with snorkeling in vibrant coral reefs, encounters with playful spinner dolphins, and immersion into Hawaiian marine folklore. This tour offers a rare glimpse into Lanai's underwater paradise, away from the crowds, where nature's beauty is on full display. With personalized storytelling by our knowledgeable crew, you’re not just going on a snorkeling trip; you're stepping into a rich cultural experience that promises lasting memories.

What to Expect

Your day begins with a warm welcome from the boat crew at Ma’alaea Harbor. As the boat glides away from Maui, anticipation builds with every mile traveled across the protected Au'au channel towards the enigmatic Lanai. En route, the Quicksilver’s double decks offer panoramic views of Hawaii’s breathtaking seascapes, including West Lanai's elusive Shark Fin Rock and the legendary Sweetheart Rock, accompanied by narratives rich in Hawaiian lore.

Upon reaching Lanai, the waters unveil their treasures: vertical cliffs that plunge into the sea, reefs teeming with life, and the chance to swim alongside a large pod of spinner dolphins in their natural habitat. Each snorkel site, from the vast coral reefs of Manele Bay to the unique ecosystems around Shark Fin Rock, offers a window into an underwater world where nature flourishes untouched by mass tourism.

After immersing yourself in Lanai's underwater paradise, recharge with a sumptuous breakfast and lunch onboard, featuring a variety of local and continental choices. The Quicksilver catamaran is not just a vessel but a floating haven of fun, equipped with a “Jump for Joy” jumping platform, a water slide, and numerous amenities ensuring comfort, safety, and enjoyment for all ages.

As the day unwinds, soak in the sun on cushioned seats or find solace under the shade in the main cabin, reflecting on a day well spent. The return journey is a gentle cruise back to Ma’alaea Harbor, leaving you with memories of the ocean's splendor and the serene beauty of Lanai.
