Getting To Maui

Almost all travelers to Maui arrive by air.  A few come by private yacht, or the interisland ferries from Lana'i or Molokai.  The cruise ship SS Independence no longer operates due to the  bankruptcy of American Hawaii Cruises.  However, there are many Hawaiian Cruises that visit the islands every day.  Cruise Direct offers great discounts if you're looking for a cruise for your honeymoon or vacation.  Over 100 flights per day fly in and out of Kahului, while less than a dozen fly to Kapalua-West Maui Airport Hana Airport is an isolated runway with a tiny terminal on the northeast coast just west of Hana, and is recommended (barely) only for travellers planning to stay in Hana.  

Click on the links in the table below to read more about options of getting to Maui.  Before making any reservations, be sure to check out our Discounts & Bargains page to save some money on the trips.




Direct From US Mainland

 The majority of flights connect in Honolulu and reach Maui by Hawaiian Air.  However, the biggest US airlines and Hawaiian Air do offer limited direct flights from the mainland into Kahului. 

You can save up to 70% on your airfares here or by using the search box in the right hand margin.







Interisland Flights

The biggest interisland carrier is Hawaiian Air, by a large margin after their recent merger with Aloha Airlines.  Most flights from the neighboring islands take around a half an hour, but with increased airport security, it can be a pain.  To avoid a lot of the security lines and checkpoints, try a small airline like Paragon Air.  When we flew with them, the pilot himself checked us in, and we followed him onto the runway and piled into the six-passenger jet.  Very easy, and quick.  We checked in five minutes before departure.

There are only two ferry companies based out of Maui, Expeditions, which runs a ferry service to Lana'i, and the Molokai Princess, who runs round-trips to Molokai.  No ferry travel is available between Maui and the other islands, since it has largely been replaced by air travel.  We found that the Molokai Princess left too late and came back too early to make a day trip to Molokai worthwhile, so we hopped a Paragon Air jet instead.  The Expeditions ferry is a better deal, and our trip on the ferry to Lana'i was quite pleasant.  You are allowed out on deck to film, take pictures, or just enjoy the flying fish and dolphins off the bow of the boat. 

The Hawaii Super Ferry stopped service in March, 2009. The Hawaii Superferry had provided non-stop direct ferry service from Maui to Oahu (Honolulu) and from Oahu to Maui.
