Ferry to Lanai- how long and other ?

Finally decided to take the plunge and spend a couple days on Lanai during our March trip to Maui. Couple questions about the ferry since I have never taken it.

How long does it take to get from Maui to Lanai?

Can you still park at the pioneer in or is there a better option? We will be staying in a Kapalua Villa.

It says all paaengers must show ID...does that include kids?

Thank you!!

It takes about 45 min to an hour.

How much to park at the Kapalua Villa? It may be cheaper to just take a taxi into the harbour, than to find a place for 24 hour parking.

Its free to park our car at the villa where we are staying. I had heard once that Pioneer Inn had a cheap price to park but wasn't sure.

Boy, just looking at my original post...not my best typing :)

I would contact them about parking. See who they may have a contract with.

Kaanapali Taxi has a rate of $33 to go from Kapalua to Lahaina. Might just be our best bet.

Given that a shuttle would charge per body - the taxi sounds good - and efficient. And you wouldn't be worrying about your car in the lot in Lahaina.

Have fun!

Most of the questions you are asking can be answered on the ferry web site, and re parking while taking the ferry, they gave me info by phone re where to park and to show my ferry ticket stub upon departing the parking area to get a discount. go-lanai.com.

I have been on the website and ordered my tickets. It doesn't give parking on there that I can find and I have clicked every link. I will call anyway because it doesn't explain kids IDs and I really prefer not to bring their passports.

I'll be interested to hear their response, travelbugged.

We have tons of ferries in Washington and, as in Hawaii, they are regular, daily commuter routes for folks. Do not see why they would need a passport for a child.

I took 3 teenagers over on the ferry in August. They didn't want any ID on them. I had to show ID because the tickets were reserved in my name. As for parking there is a free parking lot on Luakini street about a 5 block walk. Not too bad.
