Great but very fast

Great trip but fast. It's important to remain seated because the boat is moving very fast over choppy waves. Everyone was pleasant and helpful.

We took the ferry from Lahaina to Lanai and it was only $35 per person. The ride was smooth on the 12:45 pm ferry, but we were told it can be a rough ride on the later afternoon ferry rides. The resort we were staying at made our reservations for the ferry, as they are required, and we were given... More

My wife and I took the ferry over to Lanai for a 4 day stay at the newly renovated Four Seasons on Menele Bay. The ride takes about 45 minutes and it is a fun alternative to flying. When flying from Maui to Lanai you have to go back through Oahu because there is no direct flight on Hawaiian Air,... More

We have used the ferry multiple times, to go back and forth between Maui and Lanai. We love it! The crew is always friendly and during the winter, it is fun to watch for whales. The price is right and it's wonderful to be on the water, going between islands. Much better than being up in the plane for just... More

Brilliant day exploring Lanai, booked well in advance, met by Bruce who took us of the beaten track to see places you wouldn't know existed. Bruce was amazing his stories were funny but at the same time showed a passion for the Island, We'll never forget our day out.

Wetook the latest ferry from lanai to maui, it was 35 mins late, luckily we didn't miss our flight. The ticket agent didn't warn anyone that they were running late

My wife & I have visited the Hawaiian Islands 7 or 8 times, but had never been to Lana'i. We decided on a half day trip that our Westin concierge booked for us. The 45 minute ferry ride from Lahaina to Manele Bay was very pleasant. We caught the 0916 ferry and had booked a 4x4 Expedition Trekker tour. Local... More

The whole experience was great, everything was as it should have been, no issues at all. We are already planning a return trip! Sidenote about parking - We... More

We were very disappointed. The ferry workers were very helpful. BUT don't believe the parking information on their web site. I followed their instructions but they would not validate my parking ticket to save on parking!!!! Park anywhere cause the cost is the same $15 for 24 hours...

Great sightseeing on the ferry between Lahaina Maui and Lanai. Comfortable ferry with open outside viewing on top, air conditioning in cabins on top and below. About a 45 minute ride, one of my favorite ways to whale watch in season. Do a day ride and have lunch at the beautiful resort at the beach. Expeditions ferry has packages for... More
