Lanakila is the only boat in Lahaina harbor meeting current EPA standards and is the most technology advanced boat available. Passengers can experience destinations previously unimaginable due to the design of this boat. Our boat is a fast as any raft., but go where they can't. Take a chance let your imagination roam and come out on the best boat on Maui.

I have gone on this tour three times now and it is one of the main reasons I keep going back to Maui for vacation! I have heard they recently changed management, is the previous Owner still working for them? He was hilarious!!
