The Maui run, however, just celebrated its 400th voyage and 125,000th passenger, putting it right up there with Captain Andy's Sailing Adventures as a local sailing success story. The 800-passenger Superferry, which also accommodates 200 passenger cars, makes a round-trip run from Oahu's ferry terminal – which is not downtown but off Nimitz Highway near the Dole Cannery Shops – to Maui's Kahului Harbor every morning, and does another round-trip four afternoons and evenings a week. One-way fares through the end of October are $59 for adults and $49 for children, plus $65 for a car.
The passage takes about three hours. Nice, if you like a good boat ride and want to avoid the hassle and congestion of flying. The fares may jump up in November after the Superferry passes its inaugural period (and once those court bills come due to the company), but for now, it's a good price for one of the few new travel experiences in the islands.
