The Leilani is a very fast and seaworthy boat we have had on Maui for many years. To get a better understanding in some measure of its ocean capabilities, this boat years ago, actually was used to visit the island of Molokai and then circumvent the island of Lanai in the same day. This is a tremendous amount of ocean to cover and the Pailolo Channel between Maui and Molokai is one of the roughest in the islands. Most boats would never attempt this trip but for a boat with the capabilities of the Leilani it was possible to do. They will take you to Molokini from Maalaea Harbor and your trip will be fast and smooth. Another thing that is unusual about the Leilani is that it is one of the few boats that actually moors at two separate locations at Molokini, one location on the western side and one on the eastern side. The locations are different and you will get a better idea and perspective of what Molokini has to offer.
The Pride of Maui is one of the largest and most stable power catamarans available in Maui's fleet of boats. Leaving from Maalaea Harbor the 'Pride' offers tours to Molokini in the mornings but will also operate beautiful sunset cruises a few times a week and in addition will provide one of the most comfortable boats for whale watching in the winter months.
