Experience a fun and exciting underwater adventure aboard the Lani Kai, a very popular Molokini tour for those who want the comfort and stability of a catamaran ride, but prefer a smaller group and do not want to ride with over 100 passengers. You'll enjoy two awesome snorkeling sites; the first is Molokini Crater, considered one of the best snorkeling and diving sites in the world. Next you'll head out to Turtle Arches which has also become a favorite spot for those who enjoy interacting with Hawaii's "honu" (giant sea turtles). While at Turtle Arches, your tour also offers you the opportunity to add SNUBA which is a combination of scuba diving and snorkeling, a perfect option for beginners who just want to try it out.

Activity Details

The Lani Kai offers superior speed, not just to get to your Maui snorkeling sites fast, but it's also one of the most stable catamarans around. It rides on top of rough water waves so smoothly you'll be comfortable throughout your ride. It also features amenities usually found only on much bigger vessels such as a large shaded cabin, inside and outside seating. They also have spacious swim steps going all they way down into the water for easy access in and out. 

Their crew is also second to none!  Marc, their senior captain has been driving boats from Maalaea Harbor to Molokini for over 20 years while with the Lani Kai since 1998. Your other crew members will also give you personalized attention and service. Whether you are an experienced snorkeler who wants to be left to "do your thing", a first-timer, or need a refresher course on snorkeling. The Lani Kai crew will be there to guarantee you a fun and safe adventure!

If you're still wondering what exactly is SNUBA, it's a hybrid between scuba and snorkeling and you breath through a tube attached to a tank that floats on the surface of the water. You can stay underwater for up to 30 minutes! If you know you want to do it, we recommend including it with your order. You may also choose to purchase it on the boat, but then your chances are 50/50 they will have it available then. To participate, you must be at least 8 years old, in good health, and participate in a short class held while on your way.
