Alakai Departs for Mobile
Hawaii Superferry today announced that the Alakai departs Honolulu Harbor at 3:30 pm today for Mobile, Alabama. The Alakai's 7,600-mile journey from Hawai'i through the Panama Canal, directly to Mobile, will take approximately three weeks.
Alakai's move to Mobile is to position her for future employment. Unfortunately, as a result of the Supreme Court decision, the company doesn't have a business opportunity in Hawaii for the foreseeable future.
Our customers require and deserve regular, reliable service. Plus, the ship has to be put to work...
