I rented a 2 door soft top jeep from dollar today. The jeep was a piece of junk! $140 for the day. The jeep had 70k miles on it. I was surprised it didn't break down. I couldn't open the door on the passenger side and the glove box practically fell on the floor when I opened it. Only two... More

My wife and I took the ferry early one morning from Lahaina (Maui) to the island of Lanai. It was a very nice trip and not expensive. Book ahead to get your ticket and then get down to the docks to cue. The boat is nice and large with plenty of seating inside and on top. Even though the water... More

A pleasant ride with views of whales and room inside if you it is too windy or getting too much sun for a reasonable price. If you are going to stay near the harbor to snorkel and things you are fine. If you want to get transported to the city it will cost you a lot. This may hurt the... More

Recent changes to Lanai island transportation have made getting around Lanai very expensive. I took my daughter and sister there yesterday, February 17, 2015 and was shocked by the cost of getting around. Last year, September, I paid 10.00 for a shuttle ride which took me all around the island and back to the harbor. The Four Seasons busses also... More

We had a great time taking the day trip to Lanai. We took the ferry at 6:45am and saw the sunrise from the ferry along with some whales! We took the ferry back at 2pm before the water got too rough.

If the whale watching trip seem spendy during the winter a trip from Lahaina to The island of Lanai can offer an inexpensive alternative. The boat has a regular schedule and proceeds quickly across the strai to Lanai's Manele Bay. There won't be slowing down to watch the whales or dolphins, but the price is right.

The boat ride was fine, the expeditions crew where fine, the scenery was awesome. We saw lots of whales from the boat on our way over and back from Lanai. My biggest complaint was the construction workers on the boat, they would hitch a ride over to lanai morning and afternoon to work on the four seasons hotel. Don't get... More

This is a very pretty boat ride to the island of Lana'i. The boat is clean and affords beautiful views of the Lahaina harbor and the West Maui Mountains, the island of Lana'i and, more often than not, dolphins and during whale season, whales. There is a shuttle at the Lana'i end that can take you to Manele Bay, the... More

Took the Ferry / Jeep package to Lanai. Ferry was on time, staff were friendly. Saw numerous whales both ways. Had a great lunch in Lanai City and drove out to Shipwreck Beach. Scenery was different from Maui. Saw Wild Turkey, Ringneck Pheasant Francolins and Chukars. Several roads were closed due to recent storm damage. One caution...you can't see three... More
