I went to Honolulu Harbor to go on the whale-watching cruise. The harbor was pretty & clean. The cruise was fantastic! We saw some whales, although they were pretty far away. The ship was very nice. They have a nice restaurant.

I've been to Oahu twice and it is always exiting, while being moving to my soul. This Island enriches my soul in every way. In memory of sacrifice and bravery, I will never tire of the sights and lessons of Pearl Harbor.

One of many harbors around Honolulu, this harbor is mostly industrial with Aloha Tower being its centerpiece. There are a few restaurants there plus lots of Hawai'i Pacific University students, as well as the two cruise lines that ply the waters three times a day, giving tours and insight.

I have been to the Waterfront there isn't much to see or do unless u go about down to where are the boat tours are. I know this is comparing apples to oranges but I've been to Seattle's Waterfront now that was something spectacular ours is boring.

This is a nice place to walk or sit for a while. My husband and I even ran through here a couple of days during our stay in Honolulu. Get a feel for a modern day fishing village!

Magnificent place to drive or walk around. Great place to stop and eat or to pick up one of the many tours, cruises or dinner cruises. Top location.

Honolulu Harbor is a nice area to walk around and relax while taking a look at all the boats and ships in the area. It's nice to watch all the incoming and outgoing traffic. We found several places to eat and drink around the area although we didn't try any of them. A good way to kill a little time.

Nice to watch the boats sail out of the harbor. One of the ships docked here was supposedly in one of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies according to one of the locals I spoke to. Aloha tower is nearby which is a nice place to get a view of the harbor. Pretty quite and peaceful area when I was... More

My family went to Honolulu in October and it was perfect weather for the beach and there were not that many tourists. Honolulu Harbor is a great place to walk around and find something to eat. Usually a lively place.
