The Maui Snorkeling Crew

What separates us from other boats is our wonderful and 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. We are 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. Give us a chance to show you what we mean. Come aboard and enjoy what Maui has to offer.

Our Boat

The Lani Kai II

The 53' Lani Kai II was built in 2020 and it's 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. Lani Kai II offers:

  • A large shaded cabin
  • Seating for everyone inside & outside
  • Easy water entry & exit
  • Wide swim steps at water level
  • Freshwater showers
  • Two heads (toilets)
  • Sunning deck on the bow
  • Amazing water slide
  • Catered buffet meals
  • Mai Tais, beer, sodas and water
Our Business
