Canoe racing in Kaunakakai, Molokai, Hawaii. Bernie Strehler, Molokai, Hawaii. A great family fun event. You can spend the whole day just watching all the activity and fun. Lots of action and enthusiasm for locals and visitors too.

Arrived and departed from here from and to Lahaina, and it serves it's purpose well. Didn't see any other big boats here, but there are a number of smaller fishing boats used by the locals, but we didn't see any in use. just saw people from the ferry and Irene from the Alamo car rental van.

We have found that at any sea-faring port you can usually go down the late afternoon and see the fishing boats coming in, and you can buy fresh fish. Not here - what a disappointment - no boats coming in = no fresh fish. We were able talk to couple of guys on one boat - but they weren't doing... More

We took our Icecream from Dave's down to the dock , was surprised to see about 20 people down there (around 7.30pm and dark) all chatting etc, is obviously the place to go on a Saturday night.. Had a nice little sit and looked at the boats, quite nice actually.

The Molokai Harbor is very laid back. It's not a huge harbor but what space there is available is all you need. The Maui and Molokai Princess ferries were the only ones docked here during our visit. Visiting this island from Maui is very refreshing. Nobody was in a hurry except those of us who are here for a day... More

You can drive out to the end of the long wharf and see the small marina and working docks where goods are shipped in and the Maui ferry docks. Parking and washroom facilities but no restaurants or other services. A few people fish off the wharf and a boat launch facility and moor age is provided. Great place to watch... More

Its a wharf. A nice heavy breeze. The winter sunset is so lovely and is unencumbered - meaning the sun sets on the ocean. Then after the sunset, have dinner in town.

I hope the bay won't be offended if I say 4 stars, as it's lovely, but not worth a special trip to, unless you're a sunset lover and nearby. I came here on my first day in Moloka'i, before I knew much of anything except that I survived the plane ride. I took a walk to stretch and set off... More

We rode out to the harbor just to see it. It's easy to run out thing to "do" on Molokai, but that's really why we came here. There was a group of children and adults all tied together walking down the road, I assume they were on a field trip. It was nice to see the water from the view... More

I really loved my time on laid-back Molokai, with it's friendly people, gorgeous and varied scenery, and feel that you've stepped back in time (as far as Hawaii goes), but I don't get why this is shown as an attraction. As another reviewer states, it's a wharf that has nothing special to recommend it as an attraction. This is where... More
