Press Release

Record Loads Carried Over Memorial Day Weekend

May 27, 2008

HONOLULU - Hawaii Superferry kicked off the summer travel season with record numbers of Maui and Oahu residents voyaging over the Memorial Day weekend.

More than 5,500 passengers and 1,500 vehicles traveled between Maui and Oahu over the four-day (May 23-26) weekend. Based on current bookings, May's traffic is projected to include over 21,000 passengers and 5,800 vehicles, for Hawaii Superferry's first full month of operations.

"We are pleased to report a steady increase in passenger and vehicle bookings during the last month, and are happy to see people taking advantage of our service and spending time with their families" said Hawaii Superferry President and CEO Tom Fargo. "With the recent addition of our afternoon service four days a week and our $49 summer passenger fare special, we anticipate passenger loads between Maui and Oahu will continue to increase.

Our clear focus is regular, reliable and responsible transportation service and the residents and businesses of Hawai'i are beginning to both recognize and take advantage of a great experience."

Among those who voyaged on the Alakai this past weekend was Teckla Lopez and her group of friends who used the Memorial Day weekend to take 20 classic cars to Maui.

"A group of us took the ferry to ride around Maui for pleasure. In the past, we had to ship our cars over on the barge days earlier and then wait for them to arrive. This weekend we didn't have to do that," said Lopez.

Hawaii Superferry is offering $39 passenger and $55 passenger vehicle one-way promotional fares for travel through June 5, 2008.  The $49 passenger/$65 passenger vehicle one-way summer promotional fares are good for travel through September 30, 2008.

Peak pricing is applicable on certain days during the promotional periods. Seniors (62+), children (2-12), and retired military promotional fares are available for as low as $39 during this period.
