Lahaina Harbor [Lahaina]

Boats docked in Lahaina Harbor awaiting passengers

Boats peacefully awaiting the day’s visitors in the calm waters of Lahaina Harbor.

We talked last week about the stunning views of the Maui coastline and mountain ranges from out on the water. Well, today’s featured postcard gives us a glimpse of where some of those adventures begin.

Not all boat excursions that depart from the West Maui coast begin in Lahaina Harbor. Some board right on Ka’anapali Beach in front of Whalers Village, while others in Ma’alaea Harbor, closer to Kahului.

But if you do happen to be boarding in Historic Lahaina Town, what may at times look like a chaotic group of tourist boat companies can actually be a lovely sight if your timing is right.

This Postcard

The photo for this postcard was actually taken earlier in the morning, as my wife and I waited for an 8:30am whale watching excursion. With not many operators open for business at that time of the day, it made for a great chance to take the camera out on the boardwalk of the pier and snap a few photos.

 

Does this postcard bring back memories of your favorite sail out of Lahaina Harbor? Be sure to check out this photo and a few others featured in the Lahaina section of our Maui Postcards App.

I know it’s one of the smaller categories at the moment, but I hope to be adding more photos from Lahaina soon.

Also, stay tuned to this blog for more featured postcards and follow along on Twitter at @MauiPostcards for more magic Maui!

Mahalo!
