Aloha @SweetJulie!

-The cheapest normal way to travel between island is with Hawaiian Airlines. They’re usually $140-160 roundtrip. Many of us who live here have friends with boats or planes, which of course changes things, but if you’re visiting the island Hawaiian Air is the best route for convenience & price.

-In general inter-island flights are the same price whether booked in advance or last minute.

-The flight time between islands are all between 30-60 minutes. From Honolulu to Kona on the Big Island (Big Island’s “Waikiki”) is around 47 minutes. It’s closer to 55 hrs if you’re headed to BI’s Hilo.

-There is no longer an inter-island ferry.
