Lanai Water Adventures

Double Lines

Water adventures begin in Hulopoe Bay in South Lanai, one of the island’s most picturesque places to swim and snorkel. Thanks to its protected bay, it is perfect for sunbathing, snorkelling and exploring the many tidal pools carved out of volcanic rock. You may even see spinner dolphins and other marine life playing just off shore. For scuba diving enthusiasts, the famous lava caverns of the Lanai Cathedrals off of the south coast are a must dive. And every winter to early spring, migrating humpback whales can often be seen offshore, enjoying Lanai’s warm waters.
