After departing Lahaina Harbor, we head across the Au’au Channel to the Island of Lana’i. Two snorkel sites are selected; snorkel gear, instructions and safety tips are provided by our experienced captain and crew. Dolphins are often encountered off the island with lots of tropical fish, green sea turtles and occasional manta rays at the snorkel sites. Snorkel sites are chosen by the captain to provide the clearest and calmest ocean conditions (Captain’s choice). A deli-style lunch is served on-board at one of the snorkel sites, along with complimentary sodas, juices and waters throughout the trip. (Vegetarian or Gluten Free options are available when making reservations.)

The return to Lahaina Harbor is 12:00/12:30 PM for a total trip of approximately 4.5 + hours.
