Great but very fast

Great trip but fast. It's important to remain seated because the boat is moving very fast over choppy waves. Everyone was pleasant and helpful.

My wife and I booked a day trip through them, ferry'd over in the morning and back that night and they also handled our Jeep rental (which is through Dollar rental car). The whole experience was great, everything was as it should have been, no issues at all. We are already planning a return trip! Sidenote about parking - We... More

We were very disappointed. The ferry workers were very helpful. BUT don't believe the parking information on their web site. I followed their instructions but they would not validate my parking ticket to save on parking!!!! Park anywhere cause the cost is the same $15 for 24 hours...

Great sightseeing on the ferry between Lahaina Maui and Lanai. Comfortable ferry with open outside viewing on top, air conditioning in cabins on top and below. About a 45 minute ride, one of my favorite ways to whale watch in season. Do a day ride and have lunch at the beautiful resort at the beach. Expeditions ferry has packages for... More

Trip Advisor wouldn't let me add this to their list, so I'm filing under the next closest topic. The 4 X 4 Trekker is a trip to Lanai on the Passenger Ferry, PLUS a guided tour of Lanai by a local guide. The ferry ride was probably the best part of the trip since we saw a number of whales... More

Our group of 9, ages 15-60 years enjoyed the 1 hour Ferry ride each direction. The Ferry was clean and had comfortable indoor seating as well as seating outside for those wishing to be out. The staff were all very nice and professional. We rented jeeps for a very reasonable price from Mikie at Adventure Lanai and picked them up... More

The wife and I took the ferry to Lanai for the day to explore. The ferry ride is kind of pointless if you don't rent the jeep from dollar cause there is nothing to do. The Four Seasons at the harbor is a fortune and Lanai city is pretty small. The whole package with the jeep came out to about... More

We chose the private half day Lanai tour which begins and ends with the Maui-Lanai ferry, a 45 min ride across the channel. There is little to see on Lanai, a charming small city with an excellent cultural center, secluded beaches. What made our trip was meeting and sharing with Tony our guide born and bred on Lanai. We talked... More

The ferry is a short but great way to visit Lanai. While we stayed on the island for several days, with the ferry schedule it is an easy day trip. While the captains are great, the channel can be rough so as they say – remain seated. When you disembark at Lanai you can easily walk to the nearby Manele... More

We wanted to visit the island of Lanai and decided it would be fun to take the ferry over and back and then take a shuttle up to Lanai City for lunch. The trip over was fun as was the trip back although Expeditions is kind of disorganized in terms of where you line up for boarding, pick up tickets;... More
