Nice boat, caring crew, great accommodations. It was smooth on the way to Lanai early in the morning and not so smooth coming back in the early evening and yet the crew and craft were perfect in both directions. Excellent!

If you're interested in a pleasant day-trip to Lanai - one of the best ways to accomplish that is to take the ferry from Maui (Lahaina) to Lanai. Make reservations ahead of time and select one of the early departures. We left at 7:30AM or...More

You can always charter a boat. but I do not recommend it. there is not much to see, especially on the north side. there is enough to do on the island itself without having to leave it. unless you want to fish.

If you are looking for the closest beach it is a 5 min walk. Very very close to where you are dropped of.
