Lanai Landing Adventure
Our Explorer Super Rafts depart Lahaina Harbor, Front Row Slip #11
at 7:00 AM and 9:30 AM (Monday, Wednesday, Friday)
We have coffee, juice and water available for guests during check-in (30 minutes prior to departure). Before leaving the harbor, guests are supplied with soft-sided lunch cooler bags containing turkey wraps, buttermilk dressing, Maui chips, and cookies. (Vegetarian or Gluten free options are available when making reservations.) Complimentary beverages available throughout the trip include sodas, juices & water.
After departing Lahaina Harbor, we head across the Au’au Channel to the island of Lana’i. Dolphins are often encountered off the island with lots of tropical fish, sea turtles and occasional manta rays at the snorkel site. Fresh pineapple and tropical bread are served on board our Explorer Super Raft. This trip features one off-shore snorkel site either going to or coming from Lana’i. A landing is made on Lana’i at Manele Harbor and guests then take a short (1/4 mile) walk to Hulopo’e Bay & Marine Preserve. Snorkel in the bay, explore the beautiful tidepools, take a short easy hike to Sweatheart Rock – all a short distance from the public beach.
Guests will have 3+ hours (un-guided) on the island, for a total trip of approximately 6.5 + hours. State law prohibits our crew from accompanying our guests to Hulopo’e Bay & Marine Preserve.
The return to Lahaina Harbor is 1:30/2:00 PM or 4:00/4:30 PM dependent on departure time.
