Nice walk

This is a nice place to stroll by near the cruise terminal. Went for a walk around the Aloha marketplace and stayed for a drink

Take the bus tour to speed past the skyscrapers into the shopping malls and out to Waikiki beach. You can still see palms, sand and surf between the cracks in the concrete but it is disappearing fast - drowning in designer. The bus takes a circuit past the museum of art, memorials, gardens and embassies as well as the downtown.... More

The Honolulu Harbor! Home of the Falls of Clyde and the Aloha Tower. Visiting Honolulu, Hawaii can take several trips to see much that Oahu has to offer. The Harbor is a favorite tourist destination from Hawaii Five O and Steve Mc Garret!

There are many types of boats here from pleasure craft to dinner cruise vessels, as well as cruise ships, tour boats and the occasional tall ship. The Aloha Tower is prominently in the middle and certainly is something historical.

My timeshare overlooks the Honolulu Harbor. I find it busy at times but mostly serene. I love looking at the many different boats and ships that are housed there. You can take a walk and find several restaurants, hotels, and a few stores there. Walk going downtown and you run into the ocean with the beautiful beaches!

Love that part of Honolulu as it sets you back a few years. The harbor has done beautiful boats and sailboats all around it. The fact that Gilligan's Island boat left from that place is also a pretty cool and fun fact.

If you've taken a cruise of the islands the Aloha Tower will be emblazoned in your memory. I like to think of the thousands of dockings and sorties that have come and gone from this harbor, when passenger ship was the only way to get here. The SS Lurline arriving days before the Pearl Harbor attack with reports of Japanese... More

I like boats, ships, the ocean - but there is nothing here. You may be lucky and have a few unique boats in, be careful of the barges people make into looking something other than it is (pirate boat)

Watched the cruise ships come and go. Visited the Aloha Tower, where you can do some shopping and grab a bite to eat. Clean, lots of places to take a seat to relax. Not much more to do other than that or venturing into downtown.

I went to Honolulu Harbor to go on the whale-watching cruise. The harbor was pretty & clean. The cruise was fantastic! We saw some whales, although they were pretty far away. The ship was very nice. They have a nice restaurant.
