What you'll do

We'll be heading to the amazing magical coastline of the Island of Lanai for 2 snorkel stops that are never the same and all depends on weather conditions, clarity and safety. Lanai is a tropical hideaway where you can see 30-40 feet straight down. Its clarity provides perfect conditions for snorkeling and diving.

My passion has always been the ocean and I've travel the world captaining yachts. My interests are sea life and have fished Maui for most of my career on Maui. For me safety is number #1 and my clean track record shows. Since moving to Maui 40 years ago there is so much history of the Hawaiian Islands and the stories behind the legends. Maui has different personality with each location like no other. Humpback whale season is December 15th - May 15th. They are gentle giants of the sea and are so use to coming so close to the vessels and even after 37 years still takes my breath away.

The crew was fantastic! I’ve been snorkeling a few times but learned a lot with this team. They were also very knowledgeable about the islands and Hawaii background.

We had a wonderful time! Not only was the boat ride just beautiful, snorkeling was so fun. All of the guys took great care of us, they were cool, easy to talk to and made sure we were doing okay! We also rented a GoPro from them which was a nice bonus. I would absolutely recommend this trip!

We had a great time on our snorkel trip. Dan and Willow clearly have lots of experience working with groups. We had a very comfortable boat ride over to Lanai and enjoyed two snorkeling stops that were full of colorful fish. The boat was amazingly clean and fresh fruit, snacks and a wide selection of cold drinks were provided for all. The scenery was beautiful, too!

Great trip! Dan and Willow were phenomenal. You can tell Dan has so much experience in the waters around Maui. We had a very windy day but Dan was still able to find some great snorkel spots off Lanai. We even saw a pod of spinner dolphin en route to Lanai which was amazing! Would recommend 10/10 for good snorkeling.
