Top Destinations Near the Port of Honolulu

Situated on Oahu’s south side, near downtown Honolulu, the port of Honolulu has been stewarding ships for centuries. When King Kamehameha III declared Honolulu as the capitol of the Kingdom of Hawaii in the late 1800s, the harbor became the main port of call for trading vessels, fishing boats, tour boats and luxury cruises.

When your ship docks in Honolulu, head ashore and enjoy your new horizon in the island’s capitol, where the iconic 10-story Aloha Tower lighthouse will greet you. If you feel like stretching your sea legs and don’t want to rent a car or stray too far from the boat, get to know the city with fun activities and tasty restaurants within walking distance (or a quick cab ride) from Honolulu Harbor.
