Snorkeling and SNUBA on the Lani Kai

The Lani Kai is a classy, 53-foot, double-decked, twin-diesel-powered catamaran that carries up to 59 passengers in comfort and style. Enjoy the freedom of snorkeling with a smaller group!

The Lani Kai provides the spacious feeling of larger boats while carrying half the passenger load.

This means our Crew has time to pamper you, and to make this adventure one of the most memorable experiences of your vacation.

"Lani Kai" is Hawaiian for "Heavenly Sea."

You have all the amenities of a comfortable, good-sized 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
  • Two freshwater showers
  • Two heads (toilets)
  • Two sunning trampolines
  • Water slide
  • Catered buffet meals
  • Free Mai Tais, beer, sodas and water

Lani Kai's superior speed not only takes you to Molokini fast, it also rides on top of the waves when the water is rough, providing a comfortable and stable cruise.

The best part of your trip is our wonderful, experienced Crew. Our senior captain, Marc, has run boats out of Ma'alaea Harbor for 20 years, and has been captain on the Lani Kai since 1998.

The goal of our Crew is to provide you with an awesome experience and treat you as an individual, not as cattle. On every trip we hard work to give you the best snorkeling and SNUBA experience on Maui.

If you're an experienced snorkeler we'll let you follow your own path in the water, within sight.

We help beginners with all their needs, until you feel safe. Even if you can't 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.

Additional Items

We sell SNUBA, t-shirts and hats, and we rent wetsuits. If you SNUBA you can also buy beautiful underwater photos of your experience.

Please Note: Due to safety concerns, we do not allow full-face diving masks on the boat.
