Which boat would I like to take out? That is the question that you may answer if you walk among the docks. There are some great looking boats and everyone there seems very friendly and helpful. As you work your way to the Aloha Tower Marketplace, a short distance from the harbor, be sure to look at the masted ships... More

We are often intrigued by harbors like this; not so much by the harbor itself, but rather by all the boats at dock. Beyond the beauty of the boats themselves, it's a guilty pleasure indulging in the fantasy of which we'd purchase if the lotto numbers match. A nice place for browsing and dreaming.

It's certainly a very nice harbor, but not a must see if you have limited time in Hawaii. I wouldn't spend more than an hour here.

I see Honolulu Harbor from my office every day and often, as i did recently, walking to Aloha Tower. A splendid place to watch the water traffic and enjoy the tropical scenery.

I did some of the tours and walked a bit around the harbor. It was really hot out but the views from the harbor were pretty cool. Lots of military ships and even some fighters flew over. It's a cool spot.

Took the two young children for a stroll to see the harbour, the boats, the colourful fish in the harbour waters and wonder at the size of the Star of Honolulu and the Spirit of America as well as other yachts and merchant vessels. They were enthralled. The wreck of the Fall of Clyde ship docked at Pier 8 the... More

I love going to the harbor, either to eat at one of the restaurants or take a dinner cruise out of it ( I have been on both Star of Honolulu and Majestic) seeing the Aloha Tower reminds me of Hawaii in the 50s

This is a nice place to stroll by near the cruise terminal. Went for a walk around the Aloha marketplace and stayed for a drink
