Welcome to the Hawaii Superferry information and discussion forums, here to help bring light to the interisland ferry of the Hawaiian Islands. The Hawaii interisland superferry began running interisland ferry service on December 13th, 2007 and shut down all inter-island service on March 19th, 2009. The Hawaii Superferry had planned on runnning routes between Oahu, Maui, Big Island and Kauai. For the present time, the Hawaii Superferry will no longer offer service in Hawaii due to a Hawaii Supreme Court ruling that struck down a new law allowing service without an Environmental Impact Report.
The Alakai will be used for other commercial service or military use in the future until an EIS has been successfully obtained (if this is possible.) This huge vessel boasts the most incredible views from lavish and comfortable surroundings.
This site is here to satisfy those who care about the environment but don't want to miss out on the great opportunity of interisland travel by water. We'd initially planned on building excellent maps, whale information, discount deals on your next Hawaii rental, discounted activities, and a restaurant guide. Also, we wanted to offer incredible savings on rentals of everything from automobiles to snorkel gear, helpful safety tips, informative statistics, and live streaming weather forecast updates. Since the Superferry is no longer running in Hawaii, we've decided to place links below to our preferred locations on the web.

The Hawaii Superferry has shut down all service in Hawaii until further notice. See Hawaii Superferry News.
The superferry ran at a low cost to each passenger. The most you would have had to spend even during peak season is 70 dollars per person and $110 for a large van. Rates for the Hawaii Superferry didn't get a chance to change depending on the season, age of passenger, size of vehicle, and what large items you're towing if any because it was shut down.
Interisland Superferry reservations are no longer being taken and refunds are being processed. The only real alternatives to the Superferry are private boat charter and flying. Flying is by far the least expensive alternative. We suggest flying Hawaiian over the smaller inter-island charters. Hawaiian Airlines has the best on-time record for the islands.
