The ride from Lahaina to Kaunakakai was very smooth. My gf and I sat on the open upper deck the whole way over. Perhaps it was smooth due to the early hour (left Lahaina at 715am). We sat on the upper deck on the way back from Kaunakakai (the next day at 415pm) and it became clear after about 15... More

Hi Again Folks, The Molokai Cruise Drive Package is a great way to see Molokai. The Molokai Princess left Lahaina, Maui at 7:15 AM. Alamo car rental picked us up at Kaunakakai, Molokai and took us to the airport where we got our car. We drove around for most of the day sightseeing then back to the airport where we... More

Ok- understand that the ferry is not a luxury charter. It is not a private yacht. It does not include a wine and cheese plate. It is not a dinner cruise. It is a mode of transportation between Maui and Molokai. It is a way of getting from point A to point B. That being said, the view is unbelievable... More

This review is about the Ferry kiosk staff only. We booked our tour of Molokai (which includes Ferry transport from Lahaina) through Hawai'i Ocean Project, and that tour was fine. My gripe was with the Ferry Company's kiosk staff. A few days before our Molokai tour, we were in town exploring Lahaina, and I realized that there was no parking... More

This is am adventurous way to go to Molokai. At least when we went. It was very windy which made for an exciting boat ride. Bring rain gear if you plan to sit up top or outside. I would do itt again my girl Hmmmmm sea sick LOL. This boat needs some cosmetic upgrades. Seats are old & taterered

We took the ferry to Molokai for a tour of the island. The ride there was long, and the boat was crowded, but it was fun, and we were able to see many whales as we crossed to the island.

This is the only ferry that will take you to Molokai, but the review I read said it would only take an hour to hour and a half to get there. It took all of two hours. We rented a car for the day to use while on Molokai. We got to Molokai about 10:00 a.m. and had to take... More

A group of 19 of us had a wonderful experience last week! The ferry ride was super calm and in itself was a whale watching experience (we were there first of March). We were met by our guide at the dock and had a wonderful day visiting the Coffee company, Purdy's Macadamia Nut Farm, saw the peninsula where Father Damien... More

After reading some reviews I will admit I was hesitant to take the ferry over to Molokai, maybe we had a calm day but there was no problem going over or returning. My advice would be to take a Gravol and just "do it". It is well worth the visit to the island. We took a tour once we arrived... More

My only conmplaints about this tour were that there is not enough time on Moloka'i, which is not the fault of the tour operators, and that I was not given clear instructions where to check in.. I emailed ahead of time asking how to find the check in and was given inaccurate information. The sign on the booth was not... More
