snorkeling and whale watching

Hawaii Ocean Rafting has been in business here on Maui for more than 30 years. We have remained small and family oriented. We believe that our smaller vessels and small group size allow for the absolute best snorkeling and whale watching experience out there. We specialize in snorkeling around the neighbor island of Lana’i as well as whale watching from Lahaina harbor. We offer both a half and full day snorkeling tour. If the weather cooperates (which it usually does, it’s Maui afterall) Our full day tour will circumnavigate the entire island of Lana’i! The far side of the island is home to a giant shipwreck which makes for a pretty wonderful photo opprotunity. Lana’i is wonderful for snorkeling because of it’s sheer variety and¬†virtually undisturbed habitat. Plus, the island is home to three different species of dolphin. We are often greeted by a pod of dolphins, they love to leap in play in the wake of our rafts. This time of year our snorkeling tours become part whale watching tour. We travel right through the shallow¬†channel between Maui and Lana’i, which is home to the highest concentration of humpbacks. A good way to make sure you get the full experience that The waters surrounding Maui have to offer is to go on your snorkeling tour and then go on one of our two hour whale watching tours that are devoted exclusively to whale watching. All of our tours leave from Lahaina harbor, stop by slip 8 for a chat.
