Overview


Kaanapali Ocean Adventure’s is the only snorkel vessel that goes to and around the Island of Lanai from Kaanapali Beach.  We provide the most popular and exceptional Maui snorkeling tours from the famous Whaler’s Village on Kaanapali Parkway in Lahaina.  On your spectacular half-day 4 hour snorkel tours, we take you to the Island of Lanai and stop at 2 famous Maui snorkeling spots.  During Humpback Whale Season, which is December 15th – May 15th, we’re guaranteed to see whales.  Lanai is famous for its spinner dolphins, which on our full-day 7 hour trip, we’re sure to see them along with 3 memorable Maui snorkeling spots.  With Lanai’s breathtaking shoreline, cliffs and caves, you will see the famous Shipwreck, Five Sisters, Shark Fin, Cathedrals and Sweet Heart Rock, and much more.
Kaanapali Ocean Adventures has a Whole New Wave of Adventure called “Insane,” which is our exciting jet boat ride. Hop aboard our 1 hour wet and wild ride from Kaanapali; Insane is our Eco-Friendly vessel that skips across the surface of the ocean, doing 360 spins, sharp turns, slides and dead stops. Insane heads toward Lahaina, speeds up the coast to Kapalua’s #1 famous Montage Resort, and goes into the cove at the Cliff House where we let you swim to and jump off the cliffs. We feature the Only Jet Boat in Maui County!
Experience our 2 hour whale watches and our unique custom private charters (minimum 3 hour) on both the Insane jet boat, which holds up to 20 passengers, and “Sanity,” which is our other jet boat ride that holds 32 passengers. Build your own memorable experience with our Captain Diver Dan of 37 years on Maui!


Our Mission:
- To provide the highest level of customer service to each and every one of our passengers.
- To provide an unforgettable, professional, fun-filled and unique Maui experience for guests, family and friends alike.
- We have a 72-hour cancellation policy for a full refund.
