We depart from Lahaina Harbor at around 10 am (seasonally we offer a
sunrise departure at 6:30am--this is the "Crew's Favorite"!) and begin our day with an island style
breakfast of Mom's homemade cinnamon rolls, coffee, juice and seasonal
fruit. Deli snacks are also served on-board during the one and a half
hour sail to this very special island (10am departure only). Because we
are the only company with permission to bring guests to Hulopo'e Marine Preserve (Voted the #1 beach in America by Dr. Beach), we pay close attention to both your safety
and comfort. Our Trilogy crew, as well as our island born Beach Boys,
are trained in CPR and First Aid, and are experts at insuring your
safety in and out of the water. For those wanting to deepen their ocean adventure, we recommend the upgrade of SNUBA. Besides swimming, snorkeling,
sunbathing, and beach volleyball, we
also offer a guided tour of Lana‘i's historic plantation town narrated
by island born and raised Hawaiian Cultural Guides. Our Kiawe wood BBQ
dinner, served at the Hale O Manele over looking Manele Bay, is
considered by many to be one of the best in Hawai‘i!
The return sail to Maui can be restful and
relaxing, or wet & wild, but it is always safe and lots of fun. So
whether you are a sunrise or sunset kind-of-person, many of our guests
write to tell us that Discovering Lana‘i with Trilogy was the highlight
of their whole vacation! So come out and discover for yourself why Trilogy has been chosen #1 sailing company on Maui for over 42 years and chosen #5 Tour in America by TripAdvisor 2015!

""Day Trip to Lanai"
"This is BY FAR the best group to book. We used a few different companies and wish we would have booked them all with Trilogy. The boat is totally NOT overcrowded, clean and very nice. All of the crew members were lovely...they prepared a great lunch for us on Lanai too! They actually feed you several times and you will definitely not go hungry. Great day trip that went by too fast!"

""The Cadillac of boats!"
"I have lived on Maui for 25 years and I don't do boats....with the exception of "Trilogy"! I highly recommend the trip to Lana'i! It is top notch It's so worth spending a little bit more to spend a glorious day at Manele Beach! Trilogy has it's own Gazebo where they prepare the most delicious lunch for you as well! Mama Coon's Teriyaki Chicken is the best ever! This is a dedicated family business for many years that are devoted to their cust" - 1Jewel
