Had a wonderful ride, James (crew was friendly and very helpful. Making sure everyone was doing okay, not getting sick or needed help getting around the ferry. The Capitan was great also. Travel date June 24th. Great day on the water, got to harbor in Kaunakakai within the 1hr 45 minutes.

Unfortunately we had extremely rough water the day we went to Molokai which made for uneasy stomachs the rest of the day. And one of the crew members was totally annoying - we weren't the only customer who noticed.

We really enjoyed the views from the Kalaupapa lookout and the lunch spot ( the only hotel... More

This is a great trip make sure you take the tour. With a native person. Please ask for Kahi he is the best tour guide I have had in a long while. You will be talking about this tour long after you go home. Well worth the money.

1) The ferry part: from Lahaina Harbor takes almost two hours. The ride over is fairly smooth but on the way back the wind kicks up and it is really rough. People were getting sea sick. So be prepared. 2) The Molokai land tour: We had two really nice ladies for the tour and they did try really hard but... More

This was a blast. We used this Ferry as part of a tour on Molokai. They were on time leaving out of both locations. A number of people here talk about rough waters in the afternoon. True that! It's not unsafe but it is challenging. It can get pretty chilly with the combination of wind, ocean water and cloudy skies.... More

After taking the ferry between Lahaina, Maui and Kaunakakai, Molokai in the morning and hearing that it was a fairly moderate crossing of what is normally a choppy sea channel to expect it to be much rougher on the return. The 5PM sailing left on time and we were around halfway across at the 50 minute mark when both engines... More
