Discover Lanai

Trilogy's premier tour, and the all-inclusive way to experience the private island of Lana'i.

We have been doing Trilogy adventures since our first trip to Maui about 25 years ago and they just keep getting better! We had an amazing trip seeing whales on the way over to Lana'i and the snorkeling in the bay is fabulous! You also will not go hungry - cinnamon rolls, fruit, wraps, BBQ. Well worth the money!
We had the most wonderful day possible! I think it was our favorite day in Maui. The staff are so friendly, funny and helpful, it just puts out a great atmosphere. The food was delicious, the location was incredible (Hulopo'e Bay had the bluest water, best coral, and most selection of fish), and the boat was so much fun!

Started 45 years ago, our flagship Discover Lana'i tour is sure to become your favorite day of vacation!  Trilogy has exclusive permission to escort guests to Hulopo’e Marine Preserve (Lana'i), where you can swim, snorkel, play volleyball,  hike or enjoy a historic island tour. Post activities, gather in the beautiful Hale o Manele, and enjoy a full plantation BBQ lunch, complete with our famous Kiawe grilled chicken. On the return sail enjoy a cold drink, adult bevies, and sundaes to complete a memorable day.

lana'i activities

Lana'i is home to the gorgeous Hulopo’e Bay, a protected Marine Preserve voted #1 beach in America by Dr. Beach.  The Bay offers our guests unparalleled (and uncrowded!) crystal clear views of sprawling coral reefs and a wide array of tropical fish and active marine life (sometimes even dolphins!).  For even more adventure, grab your sandals and embark on a short scenic hike to the infamous Pu'u Pehe (Sweetheart) Rock or visit the large tide pools nearby, perfect for small keiki to test their swimming skills out. Need more cardio? Our crew love getting a game of beach volley ball going for those wanting in on a little soft competition. Need less cardio? Soak up the sun and take a siesta on the beach!

For guests who are interested, we also offer a 75 min. guided air conditioned Island Tour of Lanai’s historic plantation town, narrated by charismatic island-born cultural guides.
