Maui Ferry  
  10/07  
  First whale sighting of the season - a full breach about two miles out between Lahaina and Lanai. They'rrrreeee baaaaaaaack. Can't wait to get under water and listen to them sing. -Per Phylleen  
     
  Super ferry still not up and running. Local judge suspends uperations until an environmental assessment is done. Major concern, of course, is the impact the 43-mile-an-hour transport might have on our visiting whale populaton.

Ferry   Expedition Ferry has just begun providing two daily round trips from Ma'alaea Harbor to Manele Harbor in Lanai. Day trips or weekenders on Lanai are fun as can be (good golfing, excellent snorkeling in the marine preserve where dolphins are often leaping and playing). However, those of us over here had to drive to Lahaina, poke around for a
parking place, lot of extra effort in crowded Lahaina Town. First trip from Maalaea departs at 7 AM and arrives on Lahai at 8:30. The ferry heads back for Maalaea at 9:00 AM, arriving on this side at 10:30 AM. The afternoon trip departs from Maalaea at 3:30 PM, arriving at Manele at 5. Return trip to Manele leaves Lanai at 5:30, back here an Maalaea by 7 PM. The ferry ride from Lahaina to Lanai is 45 minutes, so this is a longer boat trip. Shoud be some great whale watching and sunsets coming back. For more information, visit www.go-lanai.com
 
     
  New Seafaring Tradition  
 
  Traveling between the Hawaiian Islands by boat is a time-honored tradition. The ancient Polynesians, with their indomitable courage and genius for navigation, first commanded these waters many years ago and developed a proud history.
For them it was both fun and practical--and that’s exactly what we have designed our service to be. This Hawaiian seafaring tradition began to fade into memory with the advent of commercial aviation, but Hawaii Superferry hopes to renew the oceangoing spirit by making boat travel, once again, an important part of life here in the islands.
 
Hawaii Superferry is more than just an alternative way to get from one island to the next. We believe our interisland service will change Hawai‘i for the better, combining historic tradition with modern capabilities to rebuild our marine highways.
 
Passage on Hawaii Superferry lets you drive aboard in your own car, with all your belongings in the trunk. On the ship, you’re free to roam, relax in the lounges, eat, drink, and talk story. There’s so much to see, from live TV and individual-screen movies to simply watching the ocean go by from your seat. Not only does Hawaii Superferry passage expand the possibilities for travel among the islands, riding Hawaii Superferry can be the highlight of your trip—a time to unwind and enjoy yourself, a brief Hawaiian cruise.
 
     
  Upon arrival, you drive off in your own car, without having to touch your baggage or hustle for ground transportation. We hope Hawaii Superferry will completely change the way you feel about interisland travel, bringing the people of the islands and their visitors together in a way that is both brand new and wonderfully traditional.
