While the legal barriers preventing the Hawaii Superferry from sailing have been lifted, the company has decided to not commence sailing to Kauai, for now:
Kauai ServiceA date for commencing service to and from Kaua‘i has not yet been determined. We are working with the community on Kaua‘i and listening to their concerns. We will make our decision about when we commence our Kaua‘i service once that process is completed. - HSF
They are probably most interested in avoiding the type of circus that went on the last time the ship visited the island, or at the very least, are not interested in offloading their passengers into a crowd of violent protesters. I don't blame them. Take this from a commenter left on my original post on this matter:
Why would you encourage people to get in the middle of a pitched battle?We don't take this whale killing military project lightly. And we don't feel too friendly to anyone who rides it to our island. - FFI
So much for a civil society.
