My husband and I went with our friends on this ferry ride too Molokai for the day. It's a 2 hour one way trip. One 'am' time over in the morning with a 5:00pm return. They're very punctual so you don't want to be late. The morning ride wasn't that bad but being inside the warm seating cabin with the... More

Molokai is a 2 hour boat ride from Maui. If you like spending time on the water this may be an ideal trip for you but have a plan. Molokai does not have the Tourist infrastructure of other Hawaiian Islands. We were part of a Tom Barefoot 12 Hour Day Tour of Molokai. Our Group left early, 7 AM or... More

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.

This is a great and unique adventure for those that have enjoyed many trips to the Hawaiaan islands. It starts with a wonderful morning ferry ride to Molokai which left on time and a very animated guided tour of a variety of sites. 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
