hawaii superferry

Hawaii Superferry

These ferries will run from Honolulu, probably the new Pier 19 ferry terminal near downtown, to Kahului on Maui, Nawiliwili on Kauai, and Kawaihae on Big Island. The first ship should begin to run in late 2006, with a second ship coming onboard in 2008.

Hawaii Superferry is a private Honolulu-based company of experienced Hawaii executives, entrepreneurs and transportation professionals. The company’s mission is to connect the people and commerce in Hawaii more economically and comfortably than ever before.

The first ship that arrives will provide daily 3 hour service to Maui and Kauai, and to the Big Island three times per week, a 4 hour trip. Future plans include service to all the islands twice a day. In addition to passengers the ferries will transport car, trucks and freight. The four deck catamarans ships have a capacity of 900 people and approximately 250 cars, trucks and buses on three vehicle decks. They will also have advanced stability equipment that should make the ride very smooth.

Spirt of Ontario 1 - Honolulu Harbor

Ferry arrives in Honolulu Hawaii
March 3, 2004, Honolulu, Hawaii - The Spirt of Ontario 1 arrives in Honolulu to give the public an idea of what
the future Superferry ships will be like. I liked the ship, it was spacious and comfortable.
I was surprised that the ferry didn't have more entertainment options onboard. They did have an office like area with desks for computers,
but very few TVs. Maybe additional entertainment options will be installed in the Spirit of Ontario 1 later. This CATS Fast Ferry
will be running between Rochester New York and Toronto.

The "H4" refers to the fact that Hawaii has 3 major highways, the H1, H2, and H3. The Superferry would
provide a new option for Hawaiians.
