Cruising the Hawaiian Islands
Ports of Call in Hawaiʻi
Nāwiliwili Harbor – Kauaʻi
A natural channel leads cruise ships into the primary port of Kauaʻi, the Garden Island. Swimming, snorkeling and paddling are popular activities at the area’s sheltered beaches, while multiple shopping centers with shuttle service make Nāwiliwili a popular place to stock up on supplies and souvenirs.
Honolulu Harbor – Oʻahu
Home to two cruise ship terminals, Honolulu Harbor is the largest commercial and passenger port in the Hawaiian Islands. The port is centrally located in vibrant downtown Honolulu near Daniel K. Inouye International Airport and world-famous Oʻahu landmarks such as Waikīkī Beach and Diamond (Diamond Head) State Monument.
Mānele Harbor – Lānaʻi
Accessible by a small cruise vessel or by ferry, cruising into Mānele Harbor on the tiny island of Lānaʻi is like going back in time. The untouched coast surrounding the port is home to some of Lānaʻi’s best attractions, including Puʻu Pehe and Hulopoʻe Beach Park, a protected bay that’s popular with snorkelers.
Lāhainā & Kahului Harbors – Maui
Once the national capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom until 1845, Lāhainā is still a thriving port town with a deep history. Tender to shore to explore its history museums, art galleries, scores of unique shops and restaurants on charming Front Street, and picture-perfect beaches such as Kāʻanapali Beach.
Close to Kahului Airport, this deep-water port in Central Maui is a jumping off point for some of the Valley Isle’s most magnificent excursions, including the ʻĪao Valley State Park and Haleakalā National Park.
Hilo Harbor & Kailua-Kona Wharf – Island of Hawaiʻi
Located on the windward (east) side of the island of Hawaiʻi, Hilo Harbor is a short walk or taxi ride from downtown Hilo, with its local shops, famous farmers market and beautiful parks like Liliʻuokalani Gardens. Don’t miss the chance to visit Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, just 45 minutes south of town.
Kailua-Kona is home to more than a few must-see attractions on the sunny west side of Hawaiʻi Island. See Huliheʻe Palace and historic sites in quaint Kailua Village, take a swim at one of the area’s white sand beaches or take a tasting tour of the region’s famed Kona coffee plantations.
