Morning trips are 5 hours with two meals included and the Afternoon trips are 3 hours with one meal included. Also, the Morning snorkeling trips usually go to the Molokini Crater and Turtle Town. Afternoon trips normally travel to Coral Gardens. The exact location of EVERY tour will depend on weather and water conditions. We CANNOT guarantee any location, but the Captain will advise before each tour.

Yes. There are parking spots throughout Ma’alaea Harbor by a 3rd party management company. You can park wherever you choose, but we suggest getting to the harbor early so that you can get a spot right next to our boat at slip #76. You can scan a QR code to pay from your phone. 

Check-in for the Morning trip is 6:30AM and the Afternoon trip check-in is 12:30. Please note that, like airlines, our check-in ceases 10 minutes prior to the scheduled tour start time. Once passengers are boarded and safety announcements have been made, we can no longer accept additional passengers…even the boat is still at the slip. These are regulations that we cannot circumvent, no matter how badly we would like to allow people aboard. Please allow yourself plenty of time for the commute. Depending on the season, Maui can become very crowded with delayed roads. Allow plenty of time to comfortably park and get over to the Lani Kai II

If you need to cancel or reschedule your snorkeling trip, please write to us at [email protected] at least 24 hours before your scheduled trip. We understand that things happen and we’ll do our best to accommodate your travel plans. Cancelations will be refunded the payment amount minus the 8% booking fee that we incur from TripWorks. In the interest of fair and consistent treatment to all of our guests, we must abide by these policies. It is not always the most popular decision, but we want to make sure that those that came before you and after you will all have the same result.

No. Due to varying demands for our snorkeling tours, it is necessary to charge all guests at booking time. Our lenient cancellation policy allows you to make adjustments when necessary. If you would like to request special situations, please call us at 808.244.1979.

The Lani Kai is a 53-foot, double-decked, twin-diesel-powered catamaran that carries up to 59 passengers comfortably. It’s large enough to handle the seas, but small enough to avoid the “sea of humanity”!


The harbor is located at 101 Maalaea Road., Maalaea, Maui, Hawaii. We are located just off of Highway 30. Please note that the docks/slips are NOT in numerical order and that the retail side of the harbor has odd numbered slips and the ocean side of the harbor has even numbered slips! Our slip (dock) is #76 and is located at the end of the harbor on the ocean side. See our Contact us page for our map. You can also call us at 808-244-1979.

You can contact us 24 hours per day and 7 days per week via email. Our phones are available from 6:30AM to 8:00PM (Hawaii time) 7 days per week. Call 808.244.1979 for assistance. If you get our voicemail, please leave a message and we’ll return your call in short order.

The Afternoon Tours DO NOT go to Molokini. The trade winds and currents make it difficult for us to get to Molokini in the afternoons. There are rare occasion when the winds and currents cooperate, but you should not expect to get to Molokini in an afternoon tour with most boats on Maui.

We follow all local, state, and federal guidelines with regard to Covid-19 and equipment cleaning and maintenance.

The Lani Kai II is approved for 72 passengers during normal periods. During Covid-19, we are limited to 36 passengers. 36 passengers on a 53-foot boat allows for plenty of room for social distancing!
