Drift Dive tour to Lanai

A short boat ride from our shop, Maui’s neighboring island, Lanai, has unique underwater scenery molded by Hawaii’s volcanic history.  Lanai is best known for the Cathedrals, a bucket-list dive for good reason, but the island has many more epic dives to offer.

Our Lanai 2 Tank Drift Dive takes you off the beaten path, to the advanced sites we don’t dive on our Cathedrals 2 Tank Charter.

Join other experienced divers and explore Lanai’s hidden gems.  We’ll cover a lot of coastline on this trip and often meet spinner dolphins who love to play in the boat’s wake.

Lanai 2 Tank Drift Dive charter

On our Lanai 2 Tank Drift Dive charter we travel to the far Westside of Lanai and dive at remote sites that few people visit.  Prepare to be amazed as we access dozens of advanced sites along Lanai’s seacliff coast on our comfortable raft. 

These are drift dives, meaning the boat drops you off, the current takes you effortlessly through the dive, and the captain meets you at the end.

You can expect to see diverse underwater scenery on this trip including beautiful walls, fun swim throughs, abundant reef fish, interesting critters, and colorful coral.  These sites are also deeper and provide a greater chance to encounter marine life like mantas, whale, sharks, and other pelagics.

For experienced divers

Our Lanai Drift 2 Tank Trip is for experienced divers in good physical condition who hold an Advanced Certification, have 25 logged dives, and have dived in the last 6 months. 

Divers must have good buoyancy control and air consumption and be able to easily enter and exit the water wearing their dive gear.  We do not take snorkelers on this charter.

The best Maui dive company

Dive Maui has been diving Lanai since 1991.  Our experienced team of Captains and Instructors are experts at spotting the best wildlife and showing you Maui County’s hidden gems underwater and topside. 

Our group sizes are small, no more than 7 divers per guide, so you’ll receive personalized attention from your instructor who will guide you on two exceptional drift dives and answer your questions about marine life.

Plus, the Dive Maui team knows divers like to dive; we’re the only company that allows for extended dives (one hour, air permitting) so you can optimize your bottom time.

I had a great time diving with Dive Maui last week. I did a 2 tank dive just south of Lanai. Our guide Dom made sure to point out cool things, including lobsters, a reef shark and a large snail eating a sea anemone.

Best dive ever. Nine divers, 4 staff, two in the water, means better service than a 5 star restuarant. Courteous, competent, friendly. They know their stuff, love to pass on their knowledge, and just care while still having fun. Oh, and a hundred dolphins frolicked through our dive group at Cathedral!

Great operation for divers.

No cattle boat feel, wonderfully personal and no setting of 40 minute bottom times. If you love to boat dive, this is your place while diving the west side of Maui, Lanai and Molokai.

We did 2 tank lanai cathedral dive in Feb 2020. Professional staff and good quality equipment. Dives were adjusted to the level of divers, their experience and physiological capabilities. Great atmosphere and tasty snacks on ship!
