An Incredible Dolphin & Snorkeling Adventure in Lanai
Ready for an epic Lanai snorkeling tour? Awesome! Let’s go! We’re delighted to host you and your family aboard the Quicksilver and guide your exploration of Lanai’s remote underwater world.
Begin the day by boarding the Quicksilver at the world-renowned Lahaina Harbor, when the seas and breeze are usually calm. Sit on either of our two decks in comfort. If you squint and look across the Maui Nui Basin, you can almost see Manele Bay on the south shore of Lanai.
Shark Fin Rock, on the other hand, is not at all visible- until your double-decked vessel rounds the west coast of the island, and brings you past even more amazing landforms. Some, like Sweetheart Rock, are steeped in Hawaiian legend. Quicksilver’s engaging captain and crew – always full of aloha – will bring these ancient tales to life as they narrate your time at sea.
The nearshore waters of Lanai are home to sheer cliffs, craggy rocks, and coral reefs full of colorful marine life. A large pod of spinner dolphins lives offshore and spends a lot of time in the channel. It’s common to see these incredible marine mammals diving, leaping, and swimming alongside the boat!
Because the island is not as developed as Maui, Oahu, or Kauai, and the human population is small, the corals and other reef life have more space and time to thrive. You’ll love exploring the snorkel sites here! Whether you get the chance to see the wide-ranging coral reef of Manele Bay, or the unique reef life surrounding Shark Fin Rock, this Lanai snorkeling tour will leave you with lasting memories.
Travel & Experience an Entirely New Island of Hawaii- Lanai!
One of the most unique places you can snorkel on Maui is actually off Maui, on Lana’i! Just 8.8 miles across the channel is the Pineapple Isle – Maui’s closest neighbor island. Now home to two opulent resorts with their own golf courses, Lana’i used to be agricultural land for the world’s largest pineapple plantation. Long before that, it was one of the banishment sites for Maui’s lawbreakers.
Today, the Quicksilver catamaran’s Lanai snorkeling tour gives you the chance to visit this amazing place! Lanai offers incredible snorkeling destinations and marine life. While aboard Quicksilver, passengers often encounter spinner dolphins, who jump and twirl in the air! Lanai is home to a huge pod of over one hundred of these social marine mammals.
Lanai snorkeling sites are located beneath towering cliffs more than three hundred feet high! As you can imagine, the photo ops are just unbeatable. Few people in the world ever snorkel these remote areas like Manele Bay and Shark Fin Rock, each with visibility of up to one hundred feet.
