How do I get to Lanai?
Many competitors choose to fly into Maui, stay on Maui and take the Expeditions ferry to Lana`i on Race Day.

How should I plan to get to Lanai for the race if I am coming from Maui?
The Expeditions Passenger Ferry leaves from Lahaina, Maui near the Pioneer Inn. TriLanai has arranged for an exclusive “bike boat” to be operated by Expeditions Ferry, which will transport bikes only the morning of the race. The bike boat will leave Lahaina, Maui at 6:30am (arriving on Lanai at 7:15am). The bike boat will return from Lanai at 4:30pm (arrives in Maui about 5:15pm). Expeditions charges $10 each way to transport bikes ($20 round-trip cost). Your race participant fees DO NOT include the transportation fees for you or your bike. Make your Expeditions Ferry reservations well in advance of race day! We can’t stress this point enough: it is absolutely critical that you make your ferry reservations as far in advance of race day as possible. We encourage you to make a reservation, today, for the 6:30am ferry on race day (even if you haven’t decided if you are coming on race day or before race day). Be sure to tell Expeditions personnel that you have a bike and are participating in TriLanai! Expeditions 800-695-2624 – You are strongly encouraged to be on Lanai prior to race day. Although infrequent, Expedition’s Ferry delays or cancellations can happen for various reasons (e.g. mechanical, weather, etc).
