Let me preface this review by stating that I love boats. I was raised by the sea and have been in tiny canoes and large cruise ships and everything in-between. Rivers, open ocean, lakes... I've done it all. And until my trip on the Molokai Ferry I'd NEVER gotten sea sick. It was a beautiful, warm, sunny day on Maui... More

We've been to Maui on a number of occasions and decided this trip to explore Molokai for a day. We signed up for the Molokai Alii Guided Tour through Hawaii Ocean Project. Once we arrived on Molokai, the 6 hour tour was fine and informative. Their were 14 of us on this tour and we traveled around on a small... More

On our way to Molokai, the ferry was a pleasant way to travel. We sat on the top deck and enjoyed the sights. The treasure: meeting some locals who were happy to share stories with us and point out the sights along the way. On the trip back, we were warned we might get wet. Several of our tour group...

We decided to go on a day trip to the Island of Molokai. The package we chose was the Alii Guided Tour. We traveled from the Lahaina Harbor on the Molokai Princess which was an older ferry. Once on the island we explored the island in a air-conditioned van. Our tour guide's name was Rudy. Rudy was very informative in... More

My family and I took the Molokai Princess to and from Maui during whale season, and were delighted with all the breaches, not to mention glimpses of schools of flying fish. We found the rates very affordable, especially considering the alternative. The weather was good, and the water was calm, and so seasickness was not an issue. To consider: there... More

We have been coming to Maui for decades, but never visited the island of Molokai, one of two islands nearby to Maui and part of Maui County. So this trip, we finally pulled the trigger and booked the ferry/drive tour where for one price, you get a ferry ride to and from Molokai and a rental car to see the... More

On a recent trip to Maui, my husband and I noticed that there is daily ferry service from Lahaina to Molokia and that there is a day tour that you can take of the island. Having read the book, Molokai (which is quite good), I was curious to visit the island. A word of caution about this trip - The... More

We took an excursion from Lahina to Molokai. The entire thing was what I call "the excursion from hell". First to the Ferry ride. Thank goodness I don't have seasickness. This has to be the worst conditions I have been in and the ride back was even worse. On the way over the swells were 6-8 feet. On the way... More

I'm a local concierge and would never recommend the Molokai ferry unless forced. However that being said it is way cheaper than the plane. If you are an adventure lover and on a budget take the ferry. If you value comfort and get seasick at the drop of a hat, take the plane. Also, if you are a senior citizen,... More

We took the trip across from Molokai and were amazed at the number of whale we saw. Didn’t notice anything wrong with the ship and had a great time talking with many of the other passengers. Isn't a Princess Cruise Ship and may not be suitable for princesses.
