Superferry Countdown

June 18, 2007 By: Mark Rogers Travel Agent

Much-anticipated Alakai to debut

Although its arrival date has been delayed, the much-anticipated Hawaii Superferry is gearing up for its voyage to the Islands. Hawaii Superferry will connect Hawaii's islands with an inter-island travel and transportation alternative to inter-island flights.  Hawaii Superferry's vessel, the Alakai, during sea trials

Christened Alakai, the Hawaii Superferry is the first
vessel of its kind being built in the U.S. by ship builder Austal. The
delivery date for the vessel has been extended to give Austal time to complete
finishing touches on the vessel.

"An important requirement for Alakai's entry
into service is the completion of the United States Coast Guard's detailed
certification and inspection process, which is in its final stages in
Mobile" said John Garibald, Hawaii Superferry's president and CEO.

Due to this extension, Hawaii Superferry has announced that
service will begin later this summer, with reservations to commence in early
summer. The Alakai's arrival date in Hawaii
will be announced once the vessel commences her 16-day delivery voyage from Mobile, AL, through the
Panama Canal to Oahu.

Barges, ramps and other equipment are currently being
delivered and installed at Nawiliwili, Kahului and Honolulu Harbors,
and facility improvements will be completed during the next few months. The Alakai
has been developed to be environmentally friendly, with energy-efficient,
specially designed catamarans.

Hawaii Superferry will offer daily service between Maui and
Oahu and between Kauai and Oahu six days a
week (Sunday to Friday). A second ferry is scheduled for 2009 with service
between the Island of Hawaii and Oahu, as
well as a second daily Maui-Oahu roundtrip.

One-way rates for adult passengers will be $52 off-peak and
$62 peak not including a fuel surcharge. There will be reduced fares of $41
off-peak and $51 peak for children (2-12), senior citizens (62 and over), and
retired military personnel. Cost for children under 2 will be $17 one-way, any
day of travel. Lower fares will be available with advanced purchase from the
company's web site,
