Rough ride coming back!

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... read more

The ferry ride was relaxing and enjoyable. We also saw lots of whales. On the island, we enjoyed the van tour. Our guide Thadd was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. He provided an excellent Molokai experience-- it is so interesting to learn more about the history of the islands and how each one is different.

I was a little hesitant to take the Molokai Ferry due to reviews describing rough waters. I know the seas are calmer in the mornings, so we decided to ferry over and to fly back. This was a good decision, as even the morning seas were very rough. Taking a Bonine pill before the ferry voyage was a wise more,... More

We took the Maui Princess (both ways) from Lahaina to Molokai. I don't believe it was the usual ferry they use. The top deck had tables and white plastic chairs (secured to the deck). We took the ferry/tour package. We were given a light breakfast of fresh fruit (grapes, canteloupe, watermelon and honeydew) with a jumbo sized muffin at check-in.... More

Standard ferry trip over. Saw lots of whales. Good guide (Rudy) on Moloka'i-very informative. Good sandwich lunch (thanks Chelsea!). Saw whales (mom & babe) on wayback.

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

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.
