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

We were going to visit Molokai and took the ferry on a beautiful sunny day. We sat on the top and had no seasickness at all. I understand from others who sat on the top but at the back of the boat that there was diesel smell. We sat in the middle on the top deck and it was perfect.... More

Traveled on the Maui / Molokai ferry yesterday 9 Jan 20, 2014 and had a wonderful trip. Whales breaching everywhere. The trip takes 2 hours each way. It says on their site, on the signs on the boat and the captain announces on the boat that it is 90 minutes.... but it is a 2 hour trip. So sit back... More

DO NOT TAKE THE FERRY or book the cruise/drive tour. Everyone was seasick and throwing up on the ferry. It was horrible. I have been off the ferry for 3 hours now and still has a headache. The ferry ride was NOT 90 min. The way there and back were both over 2 hours. We spent most of our trip... More

We had booked a trip with the Maui Princess for a ferry ride over to Molokai complete with a car. After reading some horrible reviews, we almost cancelled it. I'm so glad we didn't! First of all, this is a ferry. We read how horrible the boat ride was and that we would surely get seasick. Been on many boats,... More
