Air Tour or Ferry When Touring Molokai?


The one major Hawaiian island we have not seen is the island of Molokai. We are staying on Maui and have only one day available on our trip. Should we take the air tour over there or the ferry?

Answer

Both Molokai tours are quite different so it will ultimately be up to you based upon your preferences. The ferry will take you from Lahaina to Molokai and offer you a tour of the topside of the island where you will visit the major points of interest before your return ferry ride. If you want to visit Father Damien's Leper Colony your trip will need to be in conjunction with a plane flight from Maui. It could either be a flight that will take you from Maui directly to the leper colony for a tour and then a return flight out or it can be a flight that will take you to Molokai's topside where you will be driven to the Kalaupapa Lookout where you will depart for at 2.5 mile hiking descent down to the colony. You will then have a tour of the colony and be later flown from the peninsula back to Maui.

Hawaii air tours are fundamentally divided into two categories: Hawaii airplane tours, and helicopter tours. Because these two categories of aircraft are inexorably lumped together it is important to draw a comparison between the two because people always want a contrast to determine which might provide a better Hawaii air flight for them.

Of the three islands that make up Maui County, Molokai stands out as having the closest link to old Hawaii. In many ways, landing on Molokai today is similar to arriving on Maui 25 or 30 years ago.
