Molokai Day Trip

What to expect
  • Take in the natural beauty and rustic charm of Molokai on a day trip by ferry from Maui
  • Visit the dramatic Kalaupapa sea cliffs, which overlook an isolated peninsula with a tragic history
  • Sip locally grown coffee at Molokai Coffee Plantation, then meet the friendly owner of Purdy's Macadamia Nut Farm, a small family farm
  • Visit a church founded by Father Damien, recently declared a saint, and stroll around the quaint town of Kaunakakai
Start your trip with a check in at Lahaina Harbor for your early morning ferry from Maui to Molokai. During the 2-hour crossing, keep an eye out for dolphins and whales in the beautiful waters around you. Your friendly local guide will meet you when you disembark on Molokai. Travel by air-conditioned coach to Pala'au State Park where immense cliffs rise 2,000 feet (610 meters) above the ocean, separating the Kalaupapa Peninsula below from the rest of the island. Learn about the tragic history of Kalaupapa from your knowledgeable guide.

Then it’s off to the Molokai Coffee Plantation where you will hear about the history of coffee in Hawaii while sipping a cup of their delicious brew, made from island-grown coffee beans. You will stop at Purdy's Macadamia Nut Farm to walk along a row of macadamia nut trees as you learn the history of the farm and the processes for growing and harvesting the nuts, as well as sampling delicious nuts and macadamia flower honey.

Next you will enjoy a catered lunch at the local Hotel Molokai before traveling along the coast to visit one of the churches built by Father Damien in the late 1800s. You will have time to take in Molokai’s main town, sleepy Kaunakakai to soak up the town’s rustic paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) atmosphere, a good example of Molokai’s low-key style, before returning to the ferry for your trip back to Maui. Gain an appreciation for the island’s history and culture as you travel from one exciting site to the next.
