#40 of 63 in Parks in Honolulu
Ala Wai Harbor is the largest small boat and yacht harbor in Hawaii. The harbor is situated in Honolulu at the mouth of the Ala Wai Canal, between Waikiki and downtown Honolulu. To the east are Waikiki and Diamond Head; to the west, Magic Island and the Honolulu waterfront.


The harbor has 699 berths, 85 moorings, one boat ramp, and 22 dry storage spaces. It can accommodate vessels up to 85 feet (26 m) in length.
The TransPac sailing race begins in Los Angeles and ends at the harbor, an event that takes place every two years. It is one of the world's longest-running ocean races.
Many Waikiki hotels are in the area, but the Prince Waikiki Hotel and the Hilton Hawaiian Village are essentially adjacent to the property, and the Ilikai Hotel is built on harbor land, paying rent into the boating special fund.
The harbor is home to the Waikiki Yacht Club and the Hawaii Yacht Club, which host junior sailing clubs, waterman programs to include surf ski and Hawaiian outrigger canoeing, weekly sailing races, and fishing tournaments. Boats from around the world find shelter in state harbor berths, yacht club berths, and fuel dock berths.
Ala Wai Yacht Harbor is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

  • I've got a mission to bring back the beauty that certainly has left this area the patrons in these hotels constantly walking by muttering the filth words and for God's sake most of these people are strait from plane to look out. Hotel window in utter disgust I say within 6 months of letting me and my business operate kids will be swimming here off there parents boats
  • This review is strictly about the parking. For $1 an hour, it's wonderful. It's probably a 30 minute walk to where you want to go, but it's a nice walk if it's not a terribly hot day.
