There is so much to do in Maalaea Harbor! We love the whale watching in the winter, the bustling atmosphere of the small seaport, freshly baked cookies, miniature golf and water bumper cars. But the best thing we do is spent half a day at...More

Who could want more? Maalaea offers more than just tranquility. Some of the lowest prices on the island and you can walk to the aquarium, mini golf and bumper cars. Restaurants and whale watching tours right at the harbour and deep sea charters as well....More

Stayed in Ma’alaea near the harbor. It was fun to watch the boats come and go. Went down to the harbor to take a chartered snorkel trip. Seemed nice. Windiest harbor in the US.

After a pleasant trip with Four Winds II, we ventured back to our vehicle. While walking on the dock of this lovely harbor, I slipped and feel on my arm and broke it. I am writing this review to warn others of the slippery spots...More

Prepare to pay to park. Nobody mentioned this to us so plan ahead. The parking attendants are kind of funny. There is nothing to see at this harbor so don’t go here unless you are taking a charter. This place needs a restaurant and some...More
