Nice wide ocean views from docks

We took off from here to go for a morning guided scuba dive. Very clean, fun to watch the boats come in and go out. Nice area to people watch, without being crowded.

A drive out to the end of the dock takes you past people fishing off the edge, and out to a busy commercial area. The only way most food and goods get on Molokai is through this harbor. Lots of interesting boats and a beautiful view across the ocean.

Very clean view of the ocean and a nice view of the shore looking back. Went on snorkel trip and whale watching from here. It's got a good bathroom with a shower after your snorkeling trip too.

We put in here at the finish of a race. Easy entry. Long pier to walk in and out. In good shape. Looking forward to returning.

Yes, Molokai Harbor is a whole lot of nothing. One simple pier for one simple island. But it hails back to another time when steamers came and went and a ferry still does today. For those longing to get out on the water catch the Molokai Ferry in Lahaina and come over for the day. Then hire a local guide... More

Just a small commercial/personal boat wharf at the end of a manmade 1/4 mile mole. Frequented nightly by locals as a convenient gathering area. Access to a large portion of the wharf tightly controlled by inter island shipper Young Brothers. Public restroom available 24/7 but not always presentable because of immature vagrancy. .

Unless you are coming in by water, there is nothing much to see. There are a few buildings and a dock but that is it,

Although we did not charter a fishing trip, nor did we take the ferry to Maui, this was a scenic place to stop and take some pictures. Next trip, we're going fishing!

Not sure the reason for all of the good reviews. It was a typical harbor and a typical wharf. The views out to sea and back to Molokai were quite good. But there was an industrial dock which added negatively to the ambience. Lots of far prettier sights elsewhere on the island.
