Hawaii Randy's Real Estate Opinions: Hawaii Superferry Will Finally Begin Operations

Hawaii Superferry Will Finally Begin Operations

Last week The Maui Circuit Judge lifted the injunction that has prevented the Superferry from traveling between Maui and Oahu.

The Superferry will begin sailing o December 1, 2007.  The Hawaii Superferry is offering an inaugural fare of $29 each way per passenger from Dec. 1st until Dec 20th.

Operations to Kauai will still be suspended by the management of the Superferry until they can address concerns of Kauai residents.  Many may remember the violent protestors who entered the water blocking the ship from docking in Kauai and others who attacked customers and their cars who were planning to ride the Superferry.

The Hawaii Superferry will resume service between Oahu and Maui on Dec. 1.

Hawaii SuperferryThey will be offering inaugural fares:

Oahu - Maui or Maui - Oahu
$29 for sailings Dec. 1 - Dec. 20
$39 for sailings Dec. 21 - March 12
$55 each way for passenger vehicles

From a recent press release:

"We appreciate the support we've received from everyone who shares the vision of uniting our islands and families by sea," said President and CEO, John Garibaldi. "Hawaii Superferry and its more than 300 employees look forward to a new beginning as we start our voyages between Oahu and Maui, a new choice for interisland travel. "

Randy - Since I'm not a Hawaiian I'm not sure what to think about the Super Ferry, but what I've seen in the press around here in Texas is that a lot of the people in Hawaii were not for this. Is that true? It sounds like a great idea to me and looks like it would make getting to and from so much easier.

You and your family have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!

Randy,

I'm not sure if we have something like that here. I imagine so since the intercoastal is a hot area.

I forget what all the hubbub was about and what brought the ferry to a halt? Was it the whales? I like the idea, but if the whales are in danger, I would be skeptical too.

Linda- It is a tiny minority who is against it.  They are just very loud and obnoxious.

Neal - I am sure you may have a smaller version of it somewhere.

Lysa - The real issue is that it will compete with the airlines and the barge.  Most of the complaints were not reasonable.  We had a high speed ferry many years ago and it never hit a whale.  This ship is the most state of the art ship in the islands and the most environmentally sound.
