“Lani Kai” is Hawaiian for “Heavenly Sea.”
Lani Kai’s superior speed not only takes you to Molokini fast, it also rides on top of the waves when the water is rough, providing a comfortable and stable cruise. The best part of your trip is our wonderful, experienced Crew. Our senior captain, Marc, has run boats out of Ma’alaea Harbor for over 20 years.
The goal of our Crew is to provide you with an awesome experience and treat you as an individual, not as cattle. On every trip we work hard to give you the best snorkeling and SNUBA experience on Maui.
If you’re an experienced snorkeler we’ll let you follow your own path in the water, within sight. We help beginners with all their needs, until you feel safe. Even if you can’t swim you can learn to snorkel!
We don’t spoil your experience with a lot of microphone talk. Ask our Crew about anything you want to know.
Please Note: Due to USCG safety regulations, we cannot allow full-face diving masks on the boat.
Once we’re underway you’ll be treated to a delicious continental breakfast.
Upon arrival at the Molokini Marine Preserve the crew will pass out complimentary sanitized snorkel gear and flotation devices, as well as give a brief lesson or refresher course in snorkeling to anyone who desires it.
Then into the water! Enjoy Molokini’s unparalleled visibility of 100 to 180 feet.
After your Molokini snorkeling adventure you’re invited to relax as we take a swift cruise to Maui’s fabulous Turtle Town, where green sea turtles, moray eels and other exotic marine life abounds.
While at Turtle Town you’ll enjoy a sumptuous, deli-style lunch, ice cold sodas and beer, or a Maui Rum Mai Tai before returning to Ma’alaea Harbor.
This five-hour Maui snorkeling adventure treats you to the best snorkeling experiences Maui has to offer. Fun for all ages and skill levels!
From late November through early April, Humpback whales can often be seen en route. In season, we whale watch during the trip. Lani Kai’s knowledgeable Crew will be glad to tell you about these awesome, 40-ton leviathans.
Check-in and boarding at 6:30 a.m. We return at 12:00 noon.
