Hawaii Superferry to travel to Maui to pick up vehicles

Advertiser Staff

Hawaii Superferry will go to Maui on Saturday for the sole purpose of picking up vehicles left there because of the cancellation of voyages between O'ahu and Maui last week, the company announced today.

A Maui Circuit Court approved the one-time voyage for the sole purpose of having vehicles returned to their owners on O'ahu or Maui, the company said in a news release.

Hawaii Superferry's Alakai will depart Honolulu Harbor at 11 a.m. arriving at Kahului Harbor at 2 p.m. Alakai will depart Kahului Harbor at 3 p.m. and arrive back in Honolulu Harbor at 6 p.m., the release said.

Vehicles must be driven on and off the Alakai by the vehicle's registered owner, or by a driver designated by the owner, the company said. If customers are unable to travel on this date, the company will reimburse them for expenses incurred for shipping their vehicle to its port of origin.

Should customers choose to designate an alternate driver to act on their behalf, they are required to provide a notarized Vehicle Movement Authorization (VMA) form to the driver, the company said in the release.

All drivers must have a current drivers' license to move their vehicles.

VMA forms may be downloaded from the Hawaii Superferry's Web site or picked up at the port offices at Honolulu and Kahului harbors during business hours. Forms can be notarized free of charge at any ReMax real estate office or for bank customers at Bank of Hawaii, the company said.

Hawaii Superferry passengers with stranded vehicles are being contacted by Hawaii Superferry's customer support with further details.

For those customers with questions regarding their reservation, information can be found on Hawaii Superferry's Web site at http://www.hawaiisuperferry.com/ or by calling the toll-free reservation line at 877-443-3779.
