Maalaea Harbor is located at 101 Maalaea Boat Harbor Road, a 10-mile straight shot south of Kahului across the Isthmus. The Maalaea Harbor shops are open daily from 9:30am until 9:30pm and harbor facilities include restrooms and showers. Each boat is individually operated, but most sell tickets at the Maalaea Harbor Activities booth dockside near slip 47 between 9am and 8pm. For the best chance of spotting wildlife opt for a boat departing the harbor early morning. Because of the lay of the land here, funneling down between two mountains, it can be quite windy—hold onto your hat when the local trade winds pick up midday.
