    1. From Lahaina: Lana'i Coast Maui Sail and Snorkel Trip

    Start the tour by boarding a brand new luxury catamaran at the dock in Lahaina. Set off on your incredible adventure along the spectacular coastline of Lana'i. Onboard the vessel, enjoy a continental breakfast of tropical fruit, freshly baked banana bread, and locally roasted coffee.

Get geared up with the snorkeling equipment provided and plunge into the warm waters to discover an array of local marine life.

After swimming and snorkeling, sit back with a drink and enjoy a full lunch buffet while trying to catch a sighting ...

    Patrick and Dan made sure of safety first. Then explained every activity in detail, counted heads and made sure everyone was happy and knew what to do. We got in a great sail as the wind picked up and saw fish, coral and turtles. They could not have improved a thing. Best time ever!!!!

  • Lahaina, Maui: Lana'i Snorkeling and Dolphin Encounter

    2. Lahaina, Maui: Lana'i Snorkeling and Dolphin Encounter

    See an entirely new island in Hawaii on a catamaran cruise to Lanai. Start the day with Hawaiian music and a local breakfast. Listen to your captain chat about this slice of paradise, and keep a look out for spinner dolphins jumping in the air.

    Arrive at the first site on the coast of Lanai, and explore the underwater world with a crew member in the water at all times. Take advantage of the waterslide for an extra slice of fun.

    Marvel at the marine life as you snorkel beneath towering cliffs up to 300 feet high. Be among the few to snorkel at remote locations with great visibility, such as Shark Fin Rock and Manele Bay. Get a spectacular view of the West Maui Mountains as you enjoy an adult beverage and Quicksilver Crew Trivia on the trip back to Lahaina.

    Excellent experience, the captain was very informative and entertaining. We learned a lot about the islands while enjoying the ride. Snorkeling was great and we even stopped to swim in the deep blue and saw a pod of dolphins with babies. A great experience all in all.
