One of our favorite destinations is the island of Lanai. Lanai is a sparcely inhabited island with breathtaking rugged landscapes that offers some of the best snorkeling in the world. You will see soaring cliffs as well as pinnacles rising up out of the sea. Snorkeling Lanai offers a variety that can’t be found snorkeling Maui’s road system. Lanai’s breathtaking landscape is mirrored in the sights below the surface. One of our favorite spots to snorkel is so unexpected from the surface. Upon first inspection it appears that we are stopping to snorkel in 60 feet of water, which we are but there is a surprise just below the surface. Soaring from the sea floor is a giant pinnacle that rises to just feet below the surface. This is a truly amazing spot because of the varied habitats visible in one site. You can snorkel over the top of the formation in a mere 4 feet of water or dive down the sides into deeper water. The fish and corals vary between the depths all around this giant pinnacle. It is truly a breathtaking experience.
Lanai snorkeling trips can be customized to include whale and dolphin watching, sailing, scuba diving, and sight seeing. Private snorkeling tours Maui.
