Hornblower to Offer New Ferry Service in Honolulu

Wednesday, September 05, 2007
Hornblower Marine Services announced a new option for Honolulu commuters- “TheBoat.” Beginning September 17, Hornblower Marine Services (HMS) will operate passenger-only ferry service between Oahu’s leeward side to downtown Honolulu. The commuter ferry is an extension of Honolulu’s transit service, TheBus.

HMS’s subsidiary, HMS-Pac Nav, Inc. of Bainbridge Island, Washington, has undertaken this demonstration project in cooperation with The Department of Transportation Services (DTS) for the City and County of Honolulu. The new ferry service will operate in conjunction with the Oahu Transit Services group (TheBus) who will provide dedicated shuttle service to and from the ferry terminals. The route will be serviced by two 149-passenger, HMS-chartered vessels, the Rachel Marie and the Melisa Ann. Service is offered Monday through Friday.
