Made reservations to ride the ferry over to Lanai from Maui while vacations there. The boat ride itself was really nice as you could see all the other islands and an occasional flying fish. We spent the day on Lanai and then took the ferry...More

Sadly, the Molokai ferry recently stopped running. I went on line and confirmed with the hotel concierge that there is no ferry to Molokai.

Three years ago we took the ferry to Molokai, rented a car and explored the island. We were hoping to take the ferry again this trip. The ferry service to Molokai has been discontinued.

I was in Maui in Dec. 2016 and was disappointed to find out the ferry had been cancelled in October of 2016. We did take the other ferry that takes you to Lanai and enjoyed that day trip very much.

Aside from Flying this is the only way to get to Molokai. The ferry leaves from Lahaina and arrives in Kaunakakai Harbor about 2 hours later.

Today was the last day of service. They will be open to process refunds through mid December. Guided tours are still offered to Kalaupapa by air service. Too bad, this was a fun way to get to Molokai, especially for camping.
