The Maui Snorkeling Crew
What separates us from other boats is our wonderful and experienced crew. We customize the experience for all our passengers and we love to introduce Maui to first-time divers!
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. Our team is committed to making sure that everyone that steps foot on Lani Kai II has the most relaxing experience possible. No matter your age or ability, you are always welcome with us. Don't just take our word for it, see our TripAdvisor and Google reviews now. Our goal is always "Breathtaking, Yet Relaxing"! Give us a chance to show you what we mean. Come aboard the Lani Kai II and enjoy what Maui has to offer.
The Lani Kai II
The 53' Lani Kai II was built in 2020 by Newton Boats and its the newest boat in Maalaea Harbor. It's size is perfect for handling the strong Hawaiian Tradewinds yet it's small enough to provide a chill environment for snorkeling. The Lani Kai offers:
- A large shaded cabin
- Seating for everyone inside, outside, and on the bridge
- Easy water entry & exit
- Wide swim steps at water level
- Freshwater showers
- Two heads (toilets)
- Two sunning trampolines
- Amazing water slide
- Catered buffet meals
- Free Mai Tais, beer, sodas and water
Maui Snorkeling, formerly Friendly Charters, has been in business since 1995. Over that time, close to 1 million passengers have experienced what Maui Snorkeling is all about. Our all-inclusive tour model makes us one of the most popular boats in Maui. We welcome honeymooners, anniversary celebrants, couples, seniors, families, and of course, our dedicated military members!
We are a small, family-owned business and our mission is to allow everyone to enjoy the beautiful people and places of Maui and Hawai'i.
