About Us


At Kaanapali Ocean Adventures, we are able to go places that no other boats dare – visiting areas so remote that only a select few ever get to experience what we offer. We provide a wide variety of tours and adventure activities that cater to the interests of all travel enthusiasts. Our jet boat, “Insane”, is the only one of its kind on the island of Maui. Our snorkel boat, “Sanity”, is the only vessel that leaves Kaanapali Beach and goes to and around the island of Lanai. We are located at and depart from Kaanapali Beach at Whaler’s Village between Leilani’s on the Beach Restaurant & the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort.

Diver Dan started his career as a scuba-diver instructor for the local resorts over 45 years ago. He is well known by his peers and community for his expert navigational abilities, safety records and knowledge of the ocean waters of Maui.

He has fished and dove the spectacular coastline of Lanai throughout his career. This is why both Maui boats, Sanity and Insane, go to the amazing island of Lanai on private charters. During our Kaanapali snorkeling and boat tours, he wants you to experience this tropical hideaway destination that can only be reached by boat.

Diver Dan has two vessels in Kaanapali, his jet boat, “Insane”, and his snorkel boat, “Sanity” and he’s happy to help you explore Maui with them. Book your next Kaanapali excursion online with Dan!
