Lanai Hawaii

The Experience at Koele Golf Course - An 18-hole championship course designed by legends Greg Norman and Ted Robinson. Situated in Lanai's 2,000-foot highlands, Koele is relatively short at 6,200 yards, but the course winds through hills and over tropical gulches.

Snorkeling and Scuba on Lanai - For beginning snorkelers, Hulopoe Bay is the best spot on the island to get started. The calm waters of this protected marine preserve hosts a variety of colorful fish close to shore.

Boating on Lanai - Spinning Dolphin Charters of Lanai offers private fishing and boating tours. Or book a boat dive to the Lanai Cathedrals through Trilogy Ocean Sports Lanai. With 5 round-trips daily you can often spot whales during whale watching season from December to May. Ferry trips take roughly an hour.

Whale Watching on Lanai - From December to May, humpback whales call Hawaii home. Traveling an incredible 3,000 miles of ocean in less than two-months time, these gentle giants migrate from the gulf of Alaska to Hawaii for breeding and birthing in the islands' warm and shallow waters. Their annual migration delights both visitors and residents alike during the peak of their numbers between January and early April.

Garden of the Gods - The rock towers, spires, and formations formed by centuries of erosion are at their most enchanting at dusk. The setting sun casts a warm orange glow on the rocks illuminating them in brilliant reds and purples.

Lanai Water Adventures - 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, snorkeling and exploring the many tide pools carved out of volcanic rock. You could even see spinner dolphins and the marine life playing just off shore.
