One of the best ways to view the ocean environment is on an ocean going raft like the 30' hard inflatable rafts used by Hawaiian Ocean Rafting. Being so close to the water you just see more and the boats are maneuverable enough that last minute decisions can be made to stop and see anything interesting that may come up in route. These boats travel to Lanai and do half day tours of the reef surrounding the island and also full day tours that actually circumnavigate the entire island. These tours can be quite remarkable as you visit a pristine coastline on the back side with sea cliffs, caves, shipwrecks and multiple forms of sea life. You will often run into pods of dolphins on this tour and can often see manta rays and of course during the summer months you will be able to see whales as well.
