Expeditions Ferry – Lanai Roundtrip Tickets
Expeditions is the only Lanai ferry service between Maui and Lanai. This is a basic service that offers no transportation once you arrive on Lanai. However, Lanai features a trolley system that is compatible with the arrival and departure times of Expeditions. An all-day trolley pass runs about $10.00. You can purchase the pass at Lahaina Harbor when checking in for the ferry.
Once you arrive on Lanai you can explore Hulopoe beach (The same beach that Trilogy uses) for a fraction of the cost. Have lunch at the Four Seasons or take the trolley into Lanai City. Here you will find a quaint plantation town that is a memory of “Old Hawaii”. Laid back and slow. A little further up the road is the Lodge at Keole and the natural beauty of upcountry Lanai. The Lanai Ferry also provides service to the two world-class golf courses on the island.
From sunny white sand beaches to the mist covered forest of Keole, you will discover paradise on Lanai.
The Private Island:
Lanai also called The Pineapple Island is privately owned. The newest owner is Larry Ellison, the founder of Oracle. Since he purchased the island in 2012, the improvements are moving ahead at a rapid rate. These include the harbor, roadways, hotels, golf courses and just about everything else. One of the major goals of the improvements on Lanai is keeping its rural lifestyle. Lanai is private and the locals are intent on keeping that way.

If I could give this initial experience a 0 or even a negative review I would. Unfortunately google is too kind, so a 1 star experience will suffice. First off, I understand that the ferry is a limited means of travel from Maui to Lana'i so you get what you get. The overall ride was fine, fairly quick, and the crew did a fine job. The one thing that left a sour taste in my mouth, and my family's as well, was the blatant disregard and disrespectful nature of the captain towards another family. Prior to boarding and exiting the ferry, Captain Ron, clearly did not have the "Aloha Spirit". Instead, he degraded the customers by yelling at them and blaming them for holding up the line. He noted that it was their fault for not making a reservation when the crew themselves shared a few minutes prior that customers would be able to buy a ticket aboard. Captain Ron continued to belittle the customer and the child. As a customer wanting to experience the beauty and friendliness of the islands, it was clear to me that Captain Ron had little to no understanding of what that meant. The bottom line is that he was a rude and arrogant bully with no patience for the elderly and children.
we took a day trip to Lanai and loved our ferry ride. the bottom portion of the ferry sells drinks and snacks which made the 45 min trip so fun.
I don't like this ferry they don't let bring chickens on the boat
Very rude and arrogant crew.
This is the ferry that takes you back and forth. You can buy your tickets online and then you have to check in when you get to Lahaina. The ride can be very bumpy if you travel in the afternoon, and you can feel absolutely horrible if you are riding it at night. You lose the horizon, which is awful. Try to go for morning rides. Stay an extra night so you can enjoy drinks while on Lanai!
