Oahu Dockage for a big boat?

Recommended Posts

Any Hawaiian Anarchists hanging about?  We're looking to find dockage for the 72' sailboat we run on Oahu for about two weeks in April and two weeks in June.  We're going to be prepping for a research trip to the Phoenix Islands in May and then an all women's trip back to Vancouver in July.  Last time we were in Hawaii (about 5 years ago) we stayed in Kewalo Basin, but apparently it is undergoing renovations and when we spoke with them last month they weren't sure if they'd have any space available in April (or even be done with work yet).  The other big restriction is that we have an 11' draft.  Does anyone have any suggestions or contacts for where we could put a boat of this size, ideally without paying $3.50/ft/night in Ko Olina?

You just ruled out my only suggestion.

Have you tried negotiating the rate?

I gather parking it on the breakwater for a couple of months would not fly.

Magic Island would be good.

Funny, we were killing time watching sailing videos last night.  They were sailing into the Ala Wai and showed the sailing dominatrix’s first boat on the rocks.

If we have space, the end tie on E dock at the Waikiki Yacht Club would work in terms of draft and length.  I assume someone has reciprocal privileges.

Right under the Aloha Tower is sometimes available, not sure the cost.

Any idea who we'd need to talk to about that spot?

I'll check when I get to work.  I believe reservations went through an agent, will get a contact number for you.

I don't have the number for Honolulu, I believe the captain contacted the Port of Honolulu to get permission for Pier 9 at the Aloha Tower. Mind you this was for a 200 foot yacht so probably a bit overkill for what you're looking for but should be possible.

The end tie on E dock at Waikiki Yacht Club should fit you.  Contact the Port Captain at PortCaptain@WaikikiYachtClub.com

Plenty of length and depth at E dock at Waikiki Yacht Club.  We have a squadron of SC 70's there every Transpac.
