Protesters Block Cruise Ship on Molokai

USA Today is reporting that a small cruise ship managed by American Safari Cruises scheduled to visit the Hawaiian island of Molokai over the weekend was blocked by protesters.

According to the story, the protestors were concerned about the "impact" of the ship. Perhaps somewhat ironically, American Safari Cruises is notable for their nature-focused itineraries.

The 36-passenger Safari Explorer cancelled a stop at Molokai on Saturday after encountering protestors on boats and surfboards while approaching the island's Kaunakakai Harbor. The vessel instead spent the day off the coast of of Lanai. It returned to Molokai on Sunday and was able to dock without incident.
