Inter Island Flights
The easiest way to get around the islands of Hawaii is inter-island flights. There are several airlines that offer interisland flights. With the adition of Pacific Wings and GO! to the list of interisland carriers the fare wars are heating up, and passengers are reaping the benefits.
If you are traveling alone or just with one or two other people, you can pretty much get an inter-island flight whenever you want just by going to the airport. They run hourly throughout the day. If you are planning a trip with many people however it is pretty important to book online. Large group travel can be tricky in Hawaii and the more you do ahead of time the smoother your Hawaii trip will go.

Inter Island Trips By Sea
Although inter-island flights are the quickest and most common method of island hopping, there are marine going options for those who are seafarers at heart. Currently the options include the Hawaii Superferry, public cruise ships, and private yachts. If you are fortunate enough to be invited for an interisland journey on a private yacht consider yourself extremely lucky ! Which leaves the cruise ships as the most likely current option. The other future option is the Hawaii Super Ferry. The ferry is scheduled to begin service in 2007, moving passengers and cars from island to island for reasonable rates.
Hawaii Superferry is currently operating, providing daily ferry service between Oahu and Maui. Daily service to the Island of Hawaii is set to begin in 2009. Hawaii Superferry will soon be linking more islands and connecting families, economically, comfortably and with care for our environment.
