My son loved this - great big waves once you are out of the harbor, a quick and efficient trip, and rubbing elbows with some locals made it all interesting and worthwhile.
The ferry runs back and forth to Lanai on a published schedule each day. We took the 9:15am and returned from Lanai on the 4:30pm. Runs right on time. About an hour each way. Price for non-residents is $60 per person round trip. Boat is quite comfortable with upper deck outdoor seating to catch the views and sun and breeze.... More
We ordered the tickets on the phone vs. online to get our "locals rate" ($10 off) for a round trip ferry. They sold us the tickets when we arrived but said that we weren't on their list - clerk said this happens all the time.

Funny how a day can be more fun by letting it unfold and making the best of what it throws your way. After researching several options how to get over to and explore Lanai for a day from Maui we decided on the Expeditions ferry/jeep combo. Problem was no jeeps were available for a week. So we decided to hop... More

If you get motion sickness- sit in the lower level/back of the seating. The front and TOP seem to rock the most. about 45 minutes from Island to island. Lanai was nice- so Different than Maui--each Island has its own "Flavor". Make reservations though--they do sell out.
We started on a full-day 4-wheel drive tour of Lanai from Maui to Lanai via the ferry. The ferry ride over and back was pleasant with lots of whale sightings along the way. Our tour driver, Bruce, met us at the dock and was very up front about the places that we would be able to get to and those... More
The Lanai Ferry is reliable and on schedule most all of the time. They have a helpful and friendly staff. They offer many sailings a day, a time for everyones needs. Great & convenient way to get to Lanai. They offer a kama'aina discount as well.
Best way to get to Lanai in under 1 hour. Safe and comfortable. watch out for dolphins and whales on the wy over and back.
