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).

We booked this trip because of a recommendation and the tripadvisor reviews looked amazing. Therefore, our expectations were really high! When we arrived at the harbor we were a bit lost since we didn't see the boat nor the captain or any information regarding the...More

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.

We are tossing up between Ocean Riders or Lanai Explorer (no landing) combo with whale watching. We are a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 teenage children). They like excitement but are concerned about getting seasick if it is rough,also is there anywhere my daughter can go to toilet if we get off the boat? Do you think we will get to see whales on the trip?

We enjoyed the Ocean Riders tour which incorporated several snorkeling stops near reefs and some near land. There is no place to use an actual toilet, but the ocean didn't mind the occasional pee break. If there is any... More
