If you’re suffering from reverse island fever – that is, you would like to experience as many islands as you can while you’re here – the Lanai Ferry is just the ticket. Local residents and visitors alike enjoy the short trip across Auau Channel from Maui to Lanai aboard United States Coast Guard-certified vessels.
You’ll enjoy spectacular views of Maui County, including the islands of Maui, Lanai, Molokai and Kaho’olawe. If you’re lucky and it’s a clear day, you may even see the Big Island of Hawaii. During whale season (January-April) you will marvel at the record number of Humpbacks between the islands.
Expeditions Ferry operates a fleet of four powerboats to choose from, with seating capacity ranging from 36 to 149 passengers. Expeditions can help plan your day or overnight stay on Lanai, offering you an exclusive variety of packages including golf, guided tours, jeep excursions, sporting clays and luxury overnight accommodations.
Be sure to arrange your activities in advance to compensate for the limited availabilities on the smaller Lanai, now dubbed Hawaii’s most secluded island. It is also one of the most beautiful, with vivid and vibrant colors of lush, tropical foliage contrasted against stark landscapes, and white-sand beaches against rugged pine forests.
So hop aboard the Lanai Ferry and come explore all that this intimate island has to offer. There are five departure times from Lahaina Harbor, Maui, and five return times from Manele Harbor, Lanai.
