About Us

Owner operated since 1988, Ocean Riders is the originator of the Lanai Rafting Adventure. The ridge-hull inflatables, called H.B.I.s, are used by the United States Coast Guard for search and rescue. Ocean Riders is the only rafting company on Maui with these particular crafts.

What does that mean . . . ?

Our hulls are over 1000 pounds heavier than our competitors! This translates to a much smoother, more comfortable ride. Imagine a floating coke can skimming across the water, bouncing all around and about… that is the other guys! Our rigid hull inflatable is the best. You will enjoy shipwrecks, sea coves, remote beaches, touring sea caves, dolphins, turtles and some of the best snorkeling Maui has to offer.

At 30 feet in length and powered by twin 250hp Mercury Outboard engines, we have more power as well. Ocean Riders is Coast Guard certified to carry 22 passengers, but we take a maximum of 18, so there is extra room for comfort. We have shade over 50% of the boat and padded bench seating for 50% of passengers.

Ocean Riders remains unique and extraordinary because we are the only HBI circumnavigating Lanai and the only boat that consistently sees the whole island year round. Not other boat has or does circumnavigate Lanai more than Ocean Riders!
