Description

Expeditions is Maui County’s only ferry that runs between Maui and Lanai. The trip across the Auau Channel takes about an hour and you can sit indoors with air-conditioning or ride on the upper deck and take in the views of Maui County. During whale season (December-April) there is a high likelihood of seeing our largest ocean neighbors in action.

Lanai is a largely unpopulated island that was once known as the Pineapple Island, when the Hawaiian Pineapple Company (later Dole) produced pineapples on almost 20,000 acres. Now Lanai is referred to as Hawaii’s most secluded island with a small population of approximately 3,200.


Much of the island is raw and uninhibited and you can sometimes find yourself alone on one of its beaches. Manele Bay, however, is well visited, both by guests at the Four Seasons Hotel and local visitors. The hotel also has a campground at Manele Bay where you can reserve a spot and spend a few days living on the beach. With sunset views and bordered by rocky cliffs, this location is a beautiful place to relax. Manele Bay is also a favorite location for Hawaii’s spinner dolphins and you can often see one or more pods frolicking in the water.

Manele Bay is only a short distance from Manele Harbor so it’s possible to take a day trip and walk over to the beach. Whether you go for a day or spend a few nights in the hotel or at the campground Expeditions will get you there safely. They also offer several “Explore Lanai” packages including jeep tours, horseback riding, and 4×4 treks.
