The BEST small group ocean rafting tours since 1982, Ultimate Whale Watch & Snorkel invites you to snorkel Lanai with us, as well as share photographic, non-threatening close-encounters with Dolphins, Whales and Turtles! Our rafting vessels host less than 26 guests per trip, creating a fun and uncrowded experience with Maui's marine life! We offer two different Lanai snorkeling tours, 4.5 and 6.5 hours on the water! Our snorkeling tours include snacks and meals, gear and multiple snorkel stops where you will be able to spot a variety of marine life along with our most beloved ocean friends, the dolphins! From December through May, Humpback Whale encounters are guaranteed and the crystalline offshore waters frequently provide a passing subsurface eye-to-eye view as we host tours, photography session and research groups. Make a difference and experience one of the last remaining great migrations of the Animal Kingdom. Your ticket supports freeing of entangle whales, whale research and education on Maui! See you out on the water!

Great whale watch! got close to mamma and her baby. Baby was practicing his breaching!! Captain and crew were very knowledgeable and shared facts with us. You never know where they might pop up, but the were pretty good at getting us to the whales.

We loved this one so much that we went again a few days later. These rafts are a great way to do a whale watch, and Ultimate(whale watch) has got it dialed in. Much smaller groups than the bigger boats. Personalized service from great crew....More

Our main vessel Wahine Kai has a restroom you can use, and please if you need to communicate it with the Captain/Crew, the other two smaller vessels do not have restrooms onboard. Mahalo!

Aloha, We see dolphins 95% of the time on our Lanai Snorkel trips- Both Molokini and Lanai would be good to visit in May, Lanai does offer more snorkeling spots with more marine life and less crowds due to its location.
