Discover the world of wild dolphins on the Lanai Wild Dolphin and Snorkel Eco-Adventure offered by Pacific Whale Foundation! As pioneers in wild dolphin research and experts in the field, we take you to areas in the ocean that are known habitats of many different species of wild dolphins and toothed whales. Our team of certified marine naturalists give live narrations throughout the day to provide you insight about wild dolphins and the marine life in Hawaii.
This eco-adventure cruise also combines snorkeling off the coast of Lanai where you will connect with the vibrant marine life at a bustling coral reef. We supply all of the snorkel gear (including optical masks, available at no extra charge), flotation devices, and reef-safe sunscreen, plus a "learn to snorkel" class for beginners, a guided reef tour led by our naturalists, and a Jr. Naturalist Program for kids.
Departing from Lahaina Harbor each day our stable 65' eco-friendly catamaran lets you relax in comfort. This catamaran features a water slide, hot freshwater showers, two bathrooms, and easy-access swim platforms for snorkeling.
