Maui Ocean Riders


It is with a sad heart to announce that we will no longer be in operation. After months of consideration, research and realization I have decided that the investment required to put Ocean Riders back together is just too great. It takes a special boat to handle the conditions we encounter circumnavigating Lana'i. To all of you that have experienced the "exciting" channel crossings and the trek down the north shore passing the shipwrecks you know what I'm talking about :) There are many other factors besides just replacing the vessel that have contributed to the decision such as storage, equipment replacement and catering, to name a few. I feel fortunate to have even had the opportunity to do this as a 'job' for the past 16 years and consider it an honor to be a part of the Ocean Riders' legacy that started back in 1988. Thank you to everyone that ever stepped foot on the boat with me. I will never forget all the great times and amazing people that I got to spend my days with on the water. Mahalo Nui Loa, Captain Chad P.S. Bogey misses the boat but is doing just fine ;)

Hang on tight for a Hawaii boat tour trip you will never forget!

Maui Adventure

We went on this trip 3 or 4 years ago and enjoyed it so much that we did it again, but this time brought more friends and family. There are aspects of the tour that were exactly the same as the first time but my favorite part of this tour is that it changes up based upon conditions, etc. This tour is an adventure for sure and will be a consistent stop on any trip to Maui. Crew is friendly and informative. A must do!

Top notch snorkel Lanai tour

Absolutely top notch experience with Ocean Riders today. Really enjoyed the small group experience and great snorkel locations, the circumnavigation of Lanai, Captain Chad and ocean dog Bogie, great food and overall fun experience. Highly recommend booking a tour with them.

Fun Adventure

Captain Chad is very knowledgeable and skilled. Storm swells made the journey from Maui to Lanai a little more adventurous - but we knew we were in good hands as Chad did a great job navigating. We took the tour circumnavigating Lanai and loved the snorkeling spots. Beautiful scenery, breaks spaced out between rising, snorkeling, lunch. Definitely recommend.
