Gas Prices Affect Ferry Service

Ever increasing gas prices are about to affect ferry passengers in a big way. Effective Aug. 15, all tickets will be subject to a fuel surcharge.

The fuel surcharge is currently $26 each way but will be raised or lowered monthly according to the price of diesel fuel. The base ticket price will remain the same at $40 for adults and $20 for children (one way before taxes and fees).

Ferry times will also be changing starting on Aug. 25. The ferry from Kaunakakai Harbor will depart at 5:15 a.m., which is 15 minutes earlier than the former 5:30 a.m. departure. This means that all passengers should be onboard no later than 5 a.m. Passengers trying to board after 5:10 will not be accommodated. All other departures times remain the same.

New Public Utility Commission rules also require all passengers to provide a current mailing address and contact number.

Reservations can be made at 662-3355. Mahalo for your past and future support.
