Introduction to the Hawaii Superferry

The Hawaii Superferry began providing inter-island transportation to passengers and vehicles in August of 2007 but their debut has been fraught with protests, legal battles, and delays.

Construction of the First Ferry is Completed
The first 350 foot long, high speed Hawaii Superferry vessel was christened in Mobile, Alabama on April 14, 2007. It was named the Alakai which means "Ocean Path" in Hawaiian. The vessel successfully finished five days of sea trials in the Gulf of Mexico and it is expected to leave Alabama and travel to Hawaii in late May 2007.

Hawaii Superferry Ticket Prices
Tickets are expected to go on sale near the end of May 2007 and they are expected to cost $44 to $62 for adults, $41 to $51 for children, seniors, and retired military, $17 for babies, and $59 to $69 for automobiles and SUVs less then 17 feet long and less then 8 feet high. There will be a $25 charge for excess baggage, large items, and special items such as bicycles, surfboards, and pet kennels. These prices do not include a possible fuel surcharge.

Will the Superferry Be a Good Deal?
Because of the recent inter-island airfare wars in Hawaii the fares will not be much cheaper (and maybe not always cheaper) then flying between islands, but the Superferry is expected to be attractive to visitors and local families in part because they will be able to bring their own car or a rental car with them from island to island.

Hawaii Superferry Schedule
Hawaii Superferry service is still expected to begin in July of 2007 with a schedule that will look something like this:

-Honolulu to Kahului (leave 6:30 am, arrive 9:30 am)
-Kahului to Honolulu (leave 11:00 am, arrive 2:00 pm)

-Honolulu to Nawiliwili (leave 3:00 pm, arrive 6:00 pm
-Nawiliwili to Honolulu (leave 7:00 pm, arrive 10:00 pm)

Service to the Big Island in 2009
In 2009 the Hawaii Superferry plans to add a second ferry and begin offering daily service between Honolulu and Kawaihae on the Big Island of Hawaii.
