Finally, there is another option to go island hopping in Hawaii. Till now, the only ways to visit all Hawaii islands are by flight and by taking the Hawaii crusie by here comes the launch of the Hawaii Superferry which will begin its service on 28 August. Curently, the service will link Oahu with Maui and Kauai, and will hold 866 passengers and 282 cars, and the company may be adding one more route later.

So is the Hawaii Superferry a cheaper way to do some island hopping? Here is the information from Smarttravel.com: Fares for weekday travel on the Superferry are $44 per adult with 14-day advance purchase, and less for kids and seniors. Cars cost $59 each. How does the ferry price compare to flight costs? On a sample weekday in September, fares on Go! For $30 between Honolulu, Oahu, and Lihue, Kauai. On Aloha, there were sale fares from $49, but they were sold out and the cheapest bookable fare found came out to $94.

Prices aside, this can be a more convenient option to checking in and out of the airport and waiting delays. Driving your car into the ferry means you don’t need to bring your luggages around, definitely ideal for those traveling with children!
