Parking availability in Lahaina

We will be on the POA cruise and plan to rent a car on the different islands. What is the parking availability in Lahaina (street, garage, paid, free, difficult, easy) and also near where the POA docks?

There is on street parking on Front Street, free for two hours, if you can get one! There is another huge parking area for three hours free south of the Banyan Tree square. And there are pay parking lots closer to "downtown" Lahaina off of Dickinson road and some other main streets.

Lots of parking in Lahaina, most of the free lots fill up early, but there are tons of pay lots...had to giggle at the idea of a parking "garage" in town.

As far as parking in Kahului, near the pier, have you checked out www.cruisecritic.com ? Great resource for cruisers...jump over and go to the boards for NCL. Great info from others who have done the cruise and they also have a "ports of call" section with more specific info.

There is a parking lot with a garage in the Lahaina Center / Hilo Hattie parking lot. Buy anything at Hilo Hatties and get free parking - but wrong end of Front St for your needs.

My favorite parking lot is at the corner of Front and Prison St., south side of town. Just a couple of blocks from the Banyan Tree. Free!

I agree with the comment about rent a small car. Street parking in Lahaina with a small car is muh easier, but good luck finding street parking.

Here is a reasonably comprehensive map of Lahaina parking lots:


As far as subsidized (requiring merchant valadation with time limits) parking is concerned, refer to "Free for Customers" on this page:

Ref parking near Kahului Harbor, there's some space right by it, and also a large shopping mall across the highway. The mall is private property and they fluctuate on their overnight parking policy.
