Hi we are a family of 7 travelling to Maui in July. can we take a boat from Maui to Hilo or must we fly? Can we fly direct or do we need to go back to Honolulu? thnaks cressida
We have used Island Air many times while island hopping. They use smaller planes (twin props), but get you there direct.
Go directly to Island Air's website and you can find direct flights. Prices are very favorable and available right now for July starting at63 each way per person.
Surprisingly, go! airlines, who is causing the price war, has all of their flights going through Honolulu and are more expensve.
