Evergreen: Fly Non-Stop To 10 West Coast Cities
Imagine kicking back and listening to the sounds of nature with the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean and the lush tropical rainforests as the perfect backdrop.  All of this is possible if you journey to Lanai.  Lanai is a beautiful Hawaiian island that is separated from Maui and Molokai by the Au’au Channel and the Kalohi Channel, respectively.  Known as the Pineapple Island, the main tourist activity in the area is rest and relaxation.

Once you arrive on the island, you can expect to be immediately taken aback by the tranquil atmosphere that is palpable virtually everywhere you turn.  Once you get acquainted with the island, whose only town is Lanai City, you may want to approach it from a different angle.  The Lanai Snorkel Trip is the perfect way to do just that.  You can choose from a full or half day outing depending on how much time you wish to spend underwater.

Should you choose from one of these options, you will visit anywhere from four to six snorkel sites where you can snorkel, swim, or just unwind on the boat as you enjoy the ever-present sunlight.  The 30-foot hard-bottom inflatable ocean raft is a perfect mode of transportation for this type of trip, as you will be able to benefit from comfortable seating and incredible views from the water.

Tours are designed for groups of 10 to 14, so bring a few friends along and join one of the groups that are forming right now.  The virgin coastline of Lanai will draw you in as you explore the hidden coves and sea cliffs that surround the island.  For more information, visit www.alohatours.us and reserve your tickets for a trip to remember!
