Kaanapali Ocean Adventures
Their TripAdvisor reviews say it all – Kaanapali Ocean Adventures is THE activity to book during your stay on Maui!
Take a zodiac straight from Kaanapali Beach just offshore to the Insane Jet Boat, a roller coaster on water that thrills its guests with 360 degree spins, high speeds, dead stops, and sudden turns. Skip across the surface of the water from Kaanapali to Kapalua, and feel the exhilaration of the Insane Jet Boat – the ONLY jet boat in Maui County!
Or for a slower pace, take a snorkel excursion aboard the Sanity Snorkel Boat, with amazing half and full day trips to the beautiful waters surrounding Lanai. See some of Maui’s most treasured snorkel and diving spots without the large crowds.
And during whale watching season between December and April, Kaanapali Ocean Adventures provides 2-hour humpback whale watching trips in and around the pristine offshore waters of West Maui.
If you have to pick one activity, this is the ONE, the Lanai Trip with Kaanapali Ocean Adventure!!! I was blown away by the top notch experience. The crew services, attentiveness, interaction, cleanliness, informative and professionalism are what I seek when I sign up for any activities. The captain Daniella and her crew brilliantly delivered with no question about it. They made sure each one of us were comfortable in our own personal bubbles. As she mentioned, she is the second generation of the business, her entire childhood was directly connected with the Ocean, which explain her natural instinct and knowledge on how to read the sea. Our whale watching and ocean wildlife experience was phenomenal thanks to Capt. Dani!!! I am a Maui resident and enjoy the whale season, I hop on a boat at least 4-5 times during the majestic Hump Whale season. Next time my family is in town I will hop on this boat. I highly recommend this activity for the smart ones out there. Thank you for the exceptional Ocean experience.
We have used Captain Dan and the insane boat twice now. The first time was for my son Rex’s birthday when he turns nine.

The first time was for my son Rex’s birthday when he turned nine. Imagine 15 nine-year-olds having so much fun and yelling so much that most of them lost their voices! Rock ‘n’ roll music at top volume, 360° turns and short stops conspired to make this a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Captain Dan was amazing and took us all to Cliff House to jump, a truly awesome experience!!! Highly, highly, highly recommend! The second time we went was a group of adults and teenagers. Everyone had a blast this would be a perfect date or family experience 🙂
From the beginning, we felt as though we were not only in good hands, but in good company. We learned about the history of the surrounding islands as well as some of the life cycles of whales and dolphins. It was a very educational trip to say the least! The snorkelling was amazing and I always felt safe, especially knowing that one crew member was always in the water when we were. Unfortunately, this day was pretty windy and a lot of us got sea sick towards the end. With that said, the crew was extremely helpful/understanding in their attempts to getting us better. Take your dramamine the night before and the day of just in case! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience though and would totally do it again! Thanks guys for treating us like family!! – Danielle and Peter from Squamish, BC
