About Ocean Riders Adventure Tours
The Original Lanai tour established in 1988. Only Ocean Riders circumnavigates the island of Lanai on a continual, year round basis. Nobody knows the island better. Others have tried imitating our trip but it cannot be duplicated. Our boat is the perfect vessel for handling what Lanai has to offer and the others just can't or won't do what we do. No timers to call you back from the water and cutting your time short (the other tours can't say that).

Seen more whales than on whale watching tour, had better snorkeling than snorkeling tours. Great time. It is one full day.

I can’t read this trip any higher than a five, though it deserves even more! We hired this company directly as a private charter since there were 15 of us, including four children 4 to 7 and two teenagers... or you can also book as...More

Not one negative thing to say about this adventure! Everything was spectacular from start to finish! We scuba dive and this was 10 times better than the 4 dives we did in Maui. It was like we were swimming in an aquarium, crystal clear waters...More

Shipwrecks to see, deserted beach landing - jump off the boat and swim to a beautiful sandy beach, amazing snorkeling - what more could one ask for on an adventure.

When we had gone in Jan 2017 it was $139 US and you arrive at the marina at 6:30 in the boat just after 7 am and return between 3 & 4 pm depending on the day and what you see. They provide lunch.
