Rally FOR Maui – Let Your Voice Be Heard
on SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 8 on Maui
The Superferry's arrival has been rescheduled again.
Hawaii Superferry announced today that damage to the barge
in Kahului Harbor is greater than previously thought, and the
ferry's start date has been moved back to Thursday, December 6.
Because of widespread public interest in turning out
for a rally on behalf of Maui it has been decided to hold the rally
on SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 8,
rather than Thursday, 12/6, so that more people may participate.
Updated information on the Rally FOR Maui will be available at
We are looking forward to a legal and peaceful
expression from the community on behalf of Maui.

HAWAII SUPERFERRY RE-LAUNCH
OF SERVICE BETWEEN MAUI AND O'AHU
MOVED TO DECEMBER 6
HONOLULU – Hawaii Superferry today announced it is moving the re-launch
date for service between Maui and O'ahu to Thursday, December 6, 2007. The
state DOT's Kahului barge sustained minor damage during a storm swell earlier
While repairs are estimated by the state DOT to be completed by November 30,
2007, additional time is warranted before service is resumed. The Alakai will be
returning to Kahului Harbor next week before the start of service to realign the
vessel with the pier and barge.
"Although we are excited and looking forward to resuming service between
Maui and O'ahu, we appreciate the efforts of the DOT and others to ensure the
readiness of our port facilities," said Hawaii Superferry president and CEO John
Garibaldi. "In the meantime, we are making all the necessary operational
adjustments to ensure we are in full compliance with the new regulations
including additional staff training and education."
All passengers who have booked travel between December 1 and December 5
are being contacted and are being refunded or accommodated for travel
beginning December 6.
Effective December 6, Hawaii Superferry will offer a daily round trip voyage
between O'ahu and Maui leaving Honolulu at 6:30 a.m. and arriving in Kahului
at 10:15 a.m.; departing Kahului at 11:15 a.m. and arriving in Honolulu at 2:15
