Molokai Travel Tips
Getting to Molokai
There are three ways to get to Molokai: a 25-minute flight on a local air carrier from Oahu’s Honolulu International Airport Commuter Terminal (HNL), Maui's Kahului Airport (OGG) to Molokai Airport (MKK), or the daily interisland ferry from neighbouring Maui.
Major airlines flying from Sydney to Honolulu International Airport (HNL) include Hawaiian Airlines (non-stop), Qantas (non-stop), Jetstar (non-stop) and Air Pacific (via Nadi). From Oahu, it's a 25-minute flight on a local air carrier from the Honolulu International Airport Commuter Terminal to Molokai Airport (MKK). You can also take the daily inter-island ferry from neighbouring Maui.
Ferry service on the Molokai Princess crosses the Kalohi channel twice a day between Lahaina Harbor and Kaunakakai Harbor, once in the morning, once in the late afternoon. Expect to be treated to spectacular sunsets during the afternoon ferry and whale sightings during the winter months. Travel time is approximately 90 minutes.

Weather in Molokai is pleasant throughout the year. Year round temperatures average around 23.9º C. At Molokai’s higher elevations, it can get a bit cooler and wetter so pack a light jacket. The West End of Molokai is dryer and more arid while the mountainous East End is wetter and greener.
Travelling on Molokai
It’s best to rent a car on Molokai. The island is easy to navigate with only one two-lane highway stretching across it. However, some excursions require the use of a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Quantities are limited so make reservations in advance. Remember to go easy on the accelerator here. As the sign says on your way out of the airport: “Slow down, you’re in Molokai.”
