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

We wanted to visit the Garden of the Gods in Lanai and the best way to do it is doing their Ferry/rented Jeep combo. Because after you arrive in Lanai, you need to get around somehow and just Lanai City is not like you actually visited Lanai. The ferry ride itself is really comfortable. I really enjoyed sitting on the... More

Fairly quick ride from Lahaina to Lanai at $60 round trip. Book reservations ahead of time as the time we wanted coming back to Maui was fully booked. The Shuttle from the dock to Lanai City is $10 per person each way and the driver we had gave us a lot of information about the island. On our return trip... More

It's an hour ferry ride and when you get to Lanai there's a shuttle to town. Ten dollars a person one way. The town is one square block with a park in the middle. a few restaurants and a town museum. With hot much more to do. Not worth the money to us. The ferry ride was the best part.

We were leaving Lanai and heading to Maui for a few more days. Since the air options were limited, we decided to take the ferry. The cost is $30.00 per person one way. The folks that run the ferry service are great, very friendly and professional. The ferry is good size and on a calm day, probably a fun 45-minute... More
