Mention “sailing vessels in Hawaii,” and most people automatically think of Polynesian canoes. But Honolulu, Oahu is also the home of the Falls of Clyde, shown in photo at left. It is the only surviving, fully-rigged, four-masted sailing ship left in the world. Docked at Honolulu Harbor next to the Aloha Tower Marketplace, the ship now serves as a floating... More

What a lovely harbour! We sailed out of here on the wonderful Atlantis Navatek vessel for our sunset cruise. The waters were so clean.

This harbor is on pier 8 by down town. The Aloha Tower Market Place is currently under construction and closed. There is nothing to see. A very old boat and a museum that has been closed for years, too bad. The Star of Honolulu diner cruise is located there along with Hooters and Gordon Biersch restaurant. Don't miss the Aloha...

Having visited the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park in Japan when I was a teen and seeing the Pearl Harbor the first time during its 50th Anniversary commemoration, was really memorable. We watched the short movie played as an introduction to the visit and of course, the most anticipated short boat ride to the USS Missouri was calm and relaxed. Getting... More

We basically fell across this area when walking from the Iolani Palace to the Aloha Tower. Not really that much to see other than the odd old boat, which isn't open to the public. Not worth going out of your way for in my opinion.

Went to Pearl Harbour and they cancelled the trip over to the Arizona. What a disappointment, came all the way from Niagara Falls Ontario and didn't get there because it was a little windy. The thing is, this was a once in a life time and we won't be going back.

Where do I begin. This place is touched by angles. It is so serene. The museum is very interesting. I'm into history, so I loved it. The gardens are beautiful. The oil still seeps from the USS Missouri. I'm sure that is the name. This is a grave, so it is very intense. It was well worth seeing. My father... More

This is the old harbor next to the old town. There are a bunch of old fishing boats and utility boats along with the old sailing ship. Neat place to see.

The rest of the complex is closed for redevelopment, except for a couple of the restaurants, but do go see the views of the harbor from the top of the Aloha Tower. The elevator is free, and you can see the whole area from three directions. If you are downtown, it's just a few minutes walk away.
