Hawaiian Rafting Adventures
The first excursion offered by this company is for scuba divers only. It is a full day excursion to the waters off Lana'i, where you'll see all the amazing marine wildlife that inhabit this area, including turtles, rays and innumerable tropical fish. Only one dive is offered per day, which makes the schedule more relaxed than on other dive boats. Underwater photos of almost every excursion are available. The price is USD110 per diver. Non-divers can participate in the half-day or full-day snorkel cruises to Lana'i. Meals and refreshment are included in the price of the excursion.
We walked into the store for the first time , and new that this was going to be the place we did our first ocean dive. My dive ' Buddy" and I were greated by the most friendly staff that we could have immagined. They were very helpful in getting our dive off to a good start. The boat ride to the dive destination was also very exciting. We saw whales and met a school of Spinner Dolphins on our way to the dive site. This was the first time we had dove in salt water, and was impressed with the visability. Seeing all the different colored fish and beautiful coral , helped make our vacation one to remember. We enjoyed ourselves so much on the first day that we booked another dive trip 2-days later with the same place. "Captain Steve" also helped me with my deep water certification. Which in the clear water made it very easy and relaxing. I would like to thank Dive Maui Rafting Adventures for making this the best vacation yet.... Ihope I can return next year. Thanks Steve
Had the very best whale watch and boating experience yet on maui. I have been coming here for a number of years now. Kim and Karen were the perfect host and hostess to our adventure trip. We had very close encounters with False Killer Whales (FKW), similar to Pilot Whales, and the great Humpies. One of party even touched one (FKW) as it surfaced next to the boat. Said it felt like a tire inner tube. Kim handles the boat exquisitley as he demonstrated by nosing the boat into a blow hole along the Lanai coast and we all got a good spray. This was an truly exceptional day with numerous whale sightings along with turtles and even a couple of white tipped sharks.
I highly recommend this type of adventure trip over the larger boats. I have had boats of my own and currently have a 35 foot Fantasia cutter rigged sail boat. The run on the inflatable is fast and the boat is close to the water so the experience is exciting and not for the dull at heart. I highly recommend this trip for those that have a passion for excitement and adventure. Take the ride and make sure you have camera with a big memory chip. Happy adventuring. LAC
Hawaiin Rafting Adventures with a capital A for Adventure

For years I've returned to Maui and my favorite shop and dive operation is Hawaiin Rafting Adventure. And each time there it's great to hear and see how many return guests there are when you're diving with Captain Steve Juarez. They do choose the best spots for vis and conditions. And they're not going to take you out if conditions are bad as many other shops will do. If you're looking to continue your diving education, their staff is so calm and easy to learn from it amazes you the level of improvement you can experience in your own dive habits. Do not miss the new manta dive they offer. You'll never been skunked.
Level of professionalism and helpfulness by all the staff way over the top! I felt they were way interested in my safety and having a good dive experience. Thanks to all of you. I'll be back.

It does not get any better for a dive enthusiast than with Hawaiian Rafting Adventures. From absolutely great customer service, personable crew and assurance you will dive locations with the best conditions for that day...the list goes on and on.
A great value and great time will definitely be had, if you frequent Maui you will hopefully return. I have been diving with HRA for over ten years and never been disappointed or let down.
