If your time on the island is tight—as on a day trip from Maui—I also recommend one of the well-planned van tours with a friendly local guide offered by Molokai Outdoors (www.molokai-outdoors.com; [tel] 877/553-4477 or 808/553-4477). The Alii Tour ($260) includes round-trip ferry passage from Maui (90 min. each way, departing Lahaina at 7:15am and returning at 5:30pm). The Island Tour ($151) covers more ground but is timed for an overnight stay.
