Our Hawaiian vacation started with 4 days on Oahu and then we took Hawaiian Air to Maui for 8 days. We wanted to visit one more island so I booked round trip tickets to Lanai. It was $30 each way so we spent $120 on ferry rides. I chose the 9:15 am departure and the 6:45 pm return. The ferry itself was a lot of fun. The water is beautiful and it is fun to see Maui from the ocean. The people on the ferry were nice and it was very organized. Take something for seasickness before you leave. One of the highlights was watching a youth soccer team arriving in Lahaina for a game. The kids must have been about 10 years old we could hear them cheering as the ferry arrived in the harbor. It felt like we were doing a "local" thing. There was nothing to do on Lanai except snorkel so we checked back in at the harbor and they let us catch the 4:30 pm ferry back to Lahaina. They were very accomodating and nice. It's a great ferry service. Just make sure you know what you want to do on Lanai when you get there. Ironically, the soccer kids were waiting to catch the last ferry back to Lanai. They were cheering because they had won.
