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).

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.
