Trip Insurance is recommended. One company you may want to try is CSA Travel Protection. They can be reached toll free at 800.711.1197.
On arrival day, please arrive after 2pm. Before then, we are preparing for you and we cannot accommodate early arrivals.
Check out is by 11:00am on your departure day. Your timely departure is appreciated, as we are unable to host guests on site after 11:00am. Please plan your travel arrangements accordingly. Be sure your instructor knows your arrival and departure times. (They will be sending you an on-line sign up so we have all your updated information).
If you have extra time before arrival or after departure, lunch over the beautiful view at the Hotel Molokai or coffee at Molokai’s ‘Coffees of Hawaii’ plantation can be a pleasant start or end for your week on the island. Other choices are Paddler’s Inn in Kaunakakai or the Cookhouse in Kualapuu, just a mile away from the Hui.
However, all these places seem to open and close at will – Hawaiian style – you just never know! Call before your trip to see what is available.

Depending on where you are flying from, you may choose to spend a night on Molokai before or after your workshop. Tourist and accommodation information can be found on the internet at visitmolokai.com and molokai-hawaii.com.
There are no direct flights from the US mainland to Molokai. You will need to fly to Honolulu or Maui and take a flight with one of three inter-island airlines:
~ Hawaiian Airlines
~ Mokulele Airlines
~ Makani Kai Airlines (Makani Kai is not at the mainland terminal in Honolulu – about a 10 min taxi ride.)
Auto and Taxi
While it is not necessary for you to rent a car, there is usually down time during the workshop when you will have time to explore the island on your own. There are four car rental options on the island:

Molokai Car Rental – 808.336.0670
Discount Hawaii discounthawaii.com 888.253.3224

~ Hele Mai Taxi at 808.336.0967 or 808.646.9060
~ Molokai Off-Road Tours & Taxi at 808.553.3369.
Directions: If you are renting a car, turn right as you exit the airport. Turn left at the T-intersection onto Highway 460 (towards Kaunakakai), then left again onto the Kalae Hwy 470 towards Kualapu’u. Drive three miles north, uphill, and turn right at the 3 mile marker onto our private driveway. Drive through the gate (press yellow button on post on the left before the gate). Drive to the turn-around at the end of the driveway and drop your bags. Then park above the Lodge between the trees (on your right now) on the side of the driveway , not where you dropped your bags. That area is for loading and unloading only.
