Hawaii is incredibly pleasant throughout the year so there is no ‘bad’ time to visit. Hawaii's dry season is from April to October while the wet season runs from November to March. The most popular period, and when flights and accommodation tend to be more expensive is from mid-December to mid-April. It's the best time for whale watching and surfing. If you are happy with the climate being very hot and humid, then the summer is also a very popular time to visit.
Air: To get between the islands you will travel by plane. Flights are frequent and take no time, however they are surprisingly expensive.
Boat: Limited ferry services connect Maui with Molokaʻi and Lanaʻi only.
Car: While traveling around individual islands you are best renting a car.
