When Aloha Airlines ceased operations, eyes turned to the troubled Hawaii Superferry to see if it would help fill in the gap of inter-island travel. So far, the company looks to be on track to do so having announced it is adding a second voyage four days per week between Maui and Oahu starting May 9. The afternoon voyage will operate on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Reservations for afternoon voyages are now open and are eligible for the current promotional $39 one-way passenger fares and $55 one-way passenger vehicle fares that have been extended for travel through June 5.
This second round-trip voyage is expected to benefit the ferry’s commercial customers, offering them the opportunity to return the same day. The second voyage will leave Honolulu at 3:30 p.m. arriving in Kahului at 7:00 p.m.; departing Kahului at 8:00 p.m. and arriving in Honolulu at 11:00 p.m. The morning voyage will continue its daily summer schedule departing Honolulu at 6:30 a.m. arriving in Kahului at 9:30 a.m.; departing Kahului at 11:00 a.m. and arriving in Honolulu at 2:00 p.m. Reservations can be made via www.hawaiisuperferry.com or 877-HI-FERRY.
