“Nice View!”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

Visitors can see the fish in the harbor because the water is so clear. And, Aloha Tower is close by for interested visitors to visit.

“Pretty harbor but busy too”
Reviewed 2 August 2012

My wife took a cruise that enter the Honolulu Harbor the boat was dock in the harbor. The harbor was full of life people boating, playing and enjoying life. I saw those standing paddle boards, seals and porpoises. After we were docked the port was similar to Los angles with hawaiian goods. Very commercial, not the same as you see on TV in those fiction drama series.
I will return again on a cruise that stays for a longer period of time. I want to find the little things that makes this area so good.

“Honolulu, full of surprises!”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

Every time I go to Honoluu, I discover something new and wonder how I never noticed it before. This time, got off the ship, wandered around the outdoor shopping plaza, headed the other direction towards Chinatown, ate, headed back towards the ship...and found that practically right across the street from the cruise ship terminal there is a walkover bridge with a gorgeous seawater aquarium!! Smaller ships and yachts berth there, and there are several signs, and a few people standing about, looking over the cement wall. Join in! Throw in a few bread crumbs! Watch the amazing convergence of colorful fish! Who knew? Honolulu is great! You can catch a bus to go all the way around the island, or take the hop-on-hop-off bus, or just wander around, and keep your eyes open!!!

“It Sustains the People of Hawaii”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

It's unfortunate that the State does not do more to better inform the tourist as to the importance of Honolulu Harbor historically and today. Historically and still today it's a port that sustains Hawaii. The City & County of Honolulu was built around Honolulu Harbor, and Waikiki was an after thought. Hawaii's business and financial district, government and its own Chinatown are all in close proximity of the Harbor.

Chinatown is a must visit while on Oahu (restaurants, fish, produce, lei and curio markets abound). Also the City has recently placed placards on historical and rehabilitated buildings in the area, to include Old Downtown Honolulu.

Definitely do not limit your stay to only touristy Waikiki!
