If you are heading to Maui, your trip does not stop at the Honolulu Airport. An Airport Shuttle Maui is needed. Swimming wouldn't be an option... You must 'fly' your way to the beautiful 'Valley Island'.
The Hawaii Superferry is no longer in service. The ferry used to offer services between Kauai, Maui and Oahu. Facing controversy over environmental issues, such as risks of alien species being imported from island-to-island and possible impact on the endangered humpback whale, all services have been suspended indefinitely.
Fortunately, in Hawaii, air travel is a fast way to get from one island to another (about 30-35 minutes). Many carriers offer interisland flight shuttle. Follow this link to know how to catch a connecting flight from Honolulu International Airport.
If you have a connecting flight shuttle to a neighbor island from Honolulu International Airport, most airlines will check your luggage through to your final destination.
Ask for your checked luggage to be tagged to your final destination at your point of origin. Your ticket jacket should contain claim tickets for your individual pieces of luggage. The international code of the airport corresponding to your luggage's final destination is written on these claim tickets.
When heading to Maui, look for the code: OGG. This is Maui Kahului Airport's code.
If the final destination on the claim ticket reads HNL, your luggage will be dropped off at Honolulu International Airport. That means you must retrieve your luggage from Baggage Claim and take them with you to the connecting flight.
Once at the Maui Kahului Airport, it's very easy to get your rental car. Follow this link for more details.
