Welcome to Kaunakakai Harbor,
the island of Molokai's Small Boat
Harbor oceanfront to the largest
town on Moloka'i, Kaunakakai.

Kaunakakai Harbor is used for
cargo, recreation and commercial
uses therefore the port autority is
shared by the Department of
Transportation - Harbors Diivision
and the Department of Land and
Natural Resources' Division of
Boating and Ocean Recreation.

The town was made famous in the
1930s by the song "The Cockeyed
Mayor of Kaunakakai", beginning
an ongoing tradition of designating
an honorary mayor.

In the mid-1800s, King
Kamehameha V sometimes spent
his summers on Molokai at a home
in Kaunakakai. The main street of
Kaunakakai, Ala Malama Avenue,
was named after the king's
summer home.

Follow the voyage around the world of the Hōkūle‘a. Since the 1976 voyage to Tahiti and back, Hōkūle‘a has completed nine voyages to Micronesia, Polynesia, Japan, Canada, and the United States, all using ancient wayfinding techniques of celestial navigation.

On May 18, 2014, Hōkūle‘a and her sister vessel, Hikianalia embarked from Oahu for "Malama Honua", a three-year circumnavigation of the earth. The journey will cover 47,000 nautical miles with stops at 85 ports in 26 different countries

When not on a voyage, Hōkūle‘a is moored at the Marine Education Training Center (METC) of Honolulu Community College at Sand Island in Honolulu Harbor. Learn about the Polynesian Voyaging Society here.
