The ferry that goes to Lanai? That's in Lahaina and I would say 30-45 min depending on traffic.

Yes, half an hour sounds about right, give or take a few.

Aloha,

I would allow an hour, especially if you are going during midday.

Aloha!

I guess this is as good as anywhere to ask this question, but is there only one ferry, and does it only go to Lana'i? Most reviews I've read re it are negative, to put it mildly without getting too graphic in description. Is it desirable and/or recommended?

Mahalo!

Yes there is only one ferry to Lana'i. I haven't read the reviews, we have only greatly enjoyed our trips with Trilogy to the island.

The return trip in the afternoon on any boat through the channel can be a real "ride".

Thank you, mamma, and the reviews I'd read were under Maui/Molokai Ferry, but sounded like locals & tourists alike use it. At any rate, the "regular" ferry that y'all were talking about above is listed under Expeditions Lahaina/Lana'i Passenger Ferry, and does have good reviews. I know y'all don't recommend going strictly by reviews on here, but it's hard not to see what people say when you've looked up something, lol!

I'm not sure what reviews you are reading. Please share your source! The ferry to Moloka'i is a whole different experience than the ferry to Lanai'i! They cross different bodies of water and time of year will make a huge difference!

I'd allow at least an hour. Possibly more if you were going during a commute time.
