My family is planning a 6:30am fishing charter that leaves from Honokohau Harbor. Coming from Kona Magic Sands, how much time should we plan based on traffic at that time of morning?
There's not going to be much traffic at that time of morning. If you leave at 5:45, that should be plenty of time. I tend to be very conservative with excursions that will leave without me. You might be there by 6 if you leave then.

I am as well. Unfortunately my husband and son are the ones going so...
I'll just tell them to leave at 5:45 to ensure they get there before the boat, literally, leaves without them 😁.
There is no way that it will take them 45 minutes to drive less than ten miles to the harbor and charter boats don't leave without their charters - just make sure they have the captain's cell number. The trick is actually finding the boat in the "sea" of other boats since there are two sides to the harbor. They could just take a short trip out there ahead of time and find the boat so that they know exactly where to go and then allow at least 20 minutes to get there.
