And still you have the amenities of a comfortable good size boat:

  • A large shaded cabin
  • Seating for everyone inside, outside and on the bridge
  • Our custom snorkel stairway makes it easy to get in and out of the water
  • Wide spacious swim steps at water level
  • 2 fresh water showers
  • 2 heads (toilets)
  • 2 sunning trampolines
  • A water slide

Lani Kai’s superior speed does not only take you to Molokini fast, it also let’s us ride on top of the waves when the water is rough and provides a comfortable and stable cruise.

But the best of all is our wonderful experienced crew.
Our senior captain Marc has driven boats out of Ma’alaea Harbor for 20 years and is captain on the Lani Kai since 1998.
The main goal for our crew is to provide you with an awesome experience and treat you as individuals, not as a crowd.

If you are an experienced snorkeler, they let you follow your own path in the water within sight distance. They help beginners with all their needs until you feel safe. Even if you cannot swim, you can learn to snorkel.
We don’t spoil your experience with a lot of microphone talk. Ask our crew about anything you want to know.

Up selling?

Yes, we sell underwater cameras, T-shirts and hats, rent out wetsuits and we sell SNUBA. (If you decide you want to do SNUBA, you can buy beautiful underwater photos of your experience.)
