I have always been intrigued by the less traveled Hawaiian islands so my husband and I did a half day tour of Lanai. The ferry was nothing too exciting but everything ran smoothly. Once we arrived on Lanai we were greeted by our local tour guide. We did the trekking tour and he shared some amazing stories with us about... More

We have been traveling to Hawaii for thirty years but had never visited Lanai. The ferry was easy to use, on time and comfortable. On our trip over - at 6:45 a.m. - we witnessed a gorgeous sunrise and sailing was smooth. The return trip was a bumpy ride but we never felt unsafe or in danger. While on Lanai,... More

We found this ferry to be very organized and on-time. The bumpy ride when we went from Lanai to Lahaina in the evening was unpleasant but not Expeditions' fault. They kindly provide barf bags just in case and there were a few passengers who seemed like they might need one! It's one of the only ways to get to Lanai... More

We stayed on Lanai for eight nights and loved every minute of the experience. We took the ferry to Lahaina one day to do some tourist shopping. Ferry leaves on time and is a comfortable way to travel. (It's also the only way to get there). Most of the passengers on the first A.M. trip over were Lanai locals making... More

If you have a spare day, take the ferry to Lanai and see the sites. The Challenge at Manele Bay is a "must-play" for golfers; it is perhaps the most beautiful golf course in the world. The two resorts, very different in styles and character, are worth a visit.

We had a fantastic day in Lanai. Thought the staff on the ferry was terrific. The crossing is fun and we enjoyed the scenery and the spinner dolphins off in the distance. Once we arrived, we were directed to the shuttle and then driven to Dollar to pick up the Jeep. Our assigned Jeep was old and plenty dirty and... More

However, coming back, the tide was coming is and the waves were heading towards Lanai which made the trip back quite bumpy.... More

Very smooth ride and friendly staff! We booked ahead online as advised. The boat does fill up with construction workers travelling back and forth daily so I'd be sure to book in advance. Keep an eye out for the spinner dolphins...they put on quite a show for us!

To get to Lanai, take the Expeditions ferry from Lahaina's harbour. The ferry leaves Lahaina at 6:45, 9:15, 12:45, 3:15, and 5:45. Leaves Lanai at 8:00, 10:30, 2:00, 4:30, and 6:45. In September, we didn't make reservations, and the 9:15 was sold out. We were lucky and got on via stand by. So DO make reservations! We had intended to... More
