Owner description: We provide ocean activities with island hospitality for people staying on the island of Lana'i. If you are looking to visit Lana'i for the day from Maui please go to our sister company Trilogy Excursions. Lana'i offers world famous SCUBA diving and snorkeling with consistent 100+ ft visibility, underwater lava tubes to explore and an amazing dramatic sea cliff coastline scattered with old Hawaiian burial caves and homestead platforms (all visible from the boat). We offer a 2-tank boat dive which regularly visits 1st Cathedrals dive site, which is just 5 minutes outside of the Harbor. We only take out small groups and keep a 6:1 passenger to Dive Master ratio. We also offer snorkel trips, sunset sails and mammal searches (exploring the coastline looking for spinner dolphins and depending on the time of year humpback whales). We also offer SNUBA and Discover SCUBA diving off Hulopo'e beach week days only.

“Quality of Service provided was excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

We went out twice - on the Snorkeling trip and then the Sunset Cruise. From the very beginning, we felt confident of the safety and care. I did the Snuba diving on the trip and was very well taught and looked after. The crew were enthusiastic and created so many dolphins and other attractions. Their enthusiasm was inspiring. Also, the food on the sunset cruise was great. An excellent, uplifting experience. Really good fun. Thanks Capt Casey, Kye, Thomas and all of the crew.

“Unforgettable sail and crew! Trilogy is the only choice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

This was our 2nd (of 3) sail on Maui with Trilogy and as we waited near the dock, we were so excited to see Kama on the boat again (he was also on our first sail to Molokini)! He actually remembered all 5 of our names from the sail 2 days prior! We were so impressed!

As we neared Lana'i, Kama yelled, "Spinner dolphins ahead!" A pod swam alongside the boat, jumping and spinning for over 10 minutes. What a show it was! I have to say that was the most memorable moments of the day, though it was a tough call to choose!

Nick took good care of our 9 year old on the snuba trip, which was a bit challenging given the high surf and lack of much visibility. Our son still loved the snuba dive though as this was the first year he's been old enough to do that and every chance he got, he took it.

We got some great pictures of Pu'u Pehe (Sweetheart rock) and thank the crew for telling us the legend/love story that went along with it. Kama gave us some great insight on Lana'i due to his familiarity with the island which is also something you can't get elsewhere. After some great time on the beach, it was time for a great lunch prepared, in part, by Capt. Brian. Delicious!

On the sail back, it was a bit choppy due to the tradewinds and the crew took perfect care of us so we'd not have to walk around to get anything we needed/wanted. After a brief stop for a serenade on the ukulele by Owen (Oren?) and Capt. Brian which was awesome, we cruised back into the harbor. We were so thankful we were blessed with this wonderful day and group of young men to share it with. These memories will last a lifetime!

“Whale song”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

We enjoyed the Trilogy catamaran trip from Maui to Lanai a few springs ago. The daylong trip included lunch on Lanai and a tour of the historic pineapple plantation, town, and a few hours of snorkeling. Trips to and from Lanai included racing Spinner Dolphins and Whale Watching. On the return we were treated to an event of a lifetime: witnessing the first breaths of a Humpback calf. Whale song soon permeated the air (yes, the air) and vibrated the deck of the boat. Underneath the boat was an upside down guardian male protecting the newborn and mother until the calf had cleared the blowhole. After five minutes, they were gone and we were left with a once in a lifetime memory.
