Ferry was new, clean and travelled very quickly between the two islands. Worth the ticket price. We left Maui at 915 and caught the return ferry at 2. If we were doing it again would plan to return on the 430 ferry. This would allow time to explore Lanai village, catch the 1pm shuttle returning to the ferry and then... More

We went over to Lanai for the day. The ferry was great. Bad experience with parking in Lahaina though. Were told we would get discounted parking at the Wharf Cinema Center parking. A man there at 8:40 am refused to let us park. Directed us to lot behind Paia Fish Market. Had to pay $22. Turns out a scam is... More

Really had a blast taking the ferry to Lanai. The trip is about an hour, and is reasonable. Took the ferry over in the morning. The trip was really smooth. Came back late afternoon, the water was a bit rougher, but the crew did a great job maneuvering the boat to minimize the chop. Best part was seeing a full... More

We took the ferry from Lahaina to Lanai and it was only $35 per person. The ride was smooth on the 12:45 pm ferry, but we were told it can be a rough ride on the later afternoon ferry rides. The resort we were staying at made our reservations for the ferry, as they are required, and we were given... More

My wife and I took the ferry over to Lanai for a 4 day stay at the newly renovated Four Seasons on Menele Bay. The ride takes about 45 minutes and it is a fun alternative to flying. When flying from Maui to Lanai you have to go back through Oahu because there is no direct flight on Hawaiian Air,... More

We have used the ferry multiple times, to go back and forth between Maui and Lanai. We love it! The crew is always friendly and during the winter, it is fun to watch for whales. The price is right and it's wonderful to be on the water, going between islands. Much better than being up in the plane for just... More

Brilliant day exploring Lanai, booked well in advance, met by Bruce who took us of the beaten track to see places you wouldn't know existed. Bruce was amazing his stories were funny but at the same time showed a passion for the Island, We'll never forget our day out.

My wife & I have visited the Hawaiian Islands 7 or 8 times, but had never been to Lana'i. We decided on a half day trip that our Westin concierge booked for us. The 45 minute ferry ride from Lahaina to Manele Bay was very pleasant. We caught the 0916 ferry and had booked a 4x4 Expedition Trekker tour. Local... More
