This is a boat harbor for launching the various tours and for private boat parking. It was a clean area and had some restaurants and shops, but it was nothing special.

Though it has a reputation as being quite windy, it's a nice location to call homebase for your vacation. A few restaurants, shops and the aquarium. Several condos. And, of course, it is home to many whale watch and snorkeling/snuba boats. Did I mention the wind....

We have been to Maui numerous times and gone to the harbor on almost every trip. This time we went to the aquarium. It was nice, had a lot of good fish to see. The highlight was the 3d dome featuring humpback whales. This 15 minute show was spectacular. It brought you up close to the whales. The entire harbor is a great family place to visit.

Caught the Calypso out of here twice. Convenient and ample parking at a reasonable cost. Right above the Harbour is the Sea Side Restaurant which is excellent. Thd Harbour has a Starbucks for those java needs before early excursions

Thai Paradise just opened at Ma'alaea Harbor shops.
It's a sweet venue and very nice food. Prices are very, very reasonable for what they create. The owner is really nice and cares about customers... Must Try!

Maalaea harbor is home to the Pacific Whale Foundation and the Maui Aquarium. We have been on many adventures that began here. We have always had a great time and enjoyed the people we have met there. It is worth your time to visit here.

Great harbor. We visited the Maui Ocean Aqarium. it’s a wonderful aquarium with so many varied fish and a great entertainment theater showcasing the great Humpback Whales in the area. It is the second windiest harbor in the U.S.
