Private Charters & Tours

CaptainSteve_PrivateChartersMainPageWhaleImage
Deluxe Dolphin Lana’i Snorkel Adventures are available year round.  Whale Watches are available December 15th to April 15th.

A word about chartering the boat or boats for your own private use: If there is something that you REALLY want to see or do on the water, a private charter must be considered! Think about it for a minute. There are no other vessels on the water that can offer the geographical range that Captain Steve’s provides, and snorkeling is just the beginning of what is available. We have an extraordinary volume of resources to tap in order to realize your wishes and dreams. Our captains and crew have a tremendous imagination, as well as the credentials to back up the ideas they dream up for our guests. Conventions, corporate meetings, family reunions, weddings, honeymoons, ash scatterings, and nature photography are just some of the many types of private charters we offer.

Captain’s Note

Even if you have no idea of exactly what it is that you want to do—just that it has to be spectacular—give us an idea of your budget for the event, and we’ll create an adventure of a lifetime. These excursions are NOT recommended for pregnant women, people with bad backs, or children under the age of five years.

COVID POLICIES

We will adhere to the requirements that are in place at the time by DLNR, which governs all state commercial boating.  Our current policy requires mask wearing at check in, during boarding and disembarking.  During our snorkel trips and whale watches, mask wearing is strongly recommended when not eating, drinking or snorkeling.  Social distancing will occur to the extent practical as a small vessel company.  Currently we are restricted to 50% capacity, which is subject to change at any time.  We will have hand sanitizer available at all times, and we will clean and sanitize our rafts between all trips.  While we have always sanitized our snorkel gear after each trip, we recommend that you bring your own snorkel gear if you would like. On our snorkel trips, we will now be required to serve our food to you but you may also bring your own food if you would like (no glassware allowed and only small bendable coolers will fit inside our benches).  We will no longer provide shared sunscreen so please bring your own sunscreen and note that spray sunscreen is not allowed on our vessels.  Our crew will receive daily health screenings.  We kindly ask that any guest who is feeling sick or is exhibiting any symptoms to stay home. Maui County’s current travel policies can be found at this link: https://www.mauicounty.gov/2393/Coronavirus-COVID-19-Transportation-Rela
