Hawaii marinas and moorings

Hey all! My fiancee and I work for the airlines and our company is opening a base in HNL (honolulu). We live on a 36 Catalina and would love to sail her on out there. We have heard of a few great places in the past for moorings and such. We heard there was one near the airport in HNL and was only about $15 a month. Anyone know of any of these out there?? We need all the help we can get if we are going to do this. We are currently in Sarasota, FL. We have talked about possibly shipping her out to Cali and then us sailing her to HI. That way we would not have to call off work for a month to get her out there. Any info would be great! Thanks!!

Its called keehi, would not be my first choice in Hawaii but I think this is the contact info, the mooring field is directly under the flight path.


4 Sand Island Access Road, Honolulu, Hawaii 96819
Tel808) 832-3464 , Fax808) 832-3419
Keehi_harbor@hawaii.gov
Located on the south coast of Oahu, approximately five miles from Waikiki Beach by the international airport. The state run marina has 389 berths, with moorings also sometimes available at Keehi Lagoon.

Aloha Bunny,
Welcome aboard!
Here's the phone number for Hawaii State Department of Land and Natural Resources, Boating at Keehi (next to the airport and under the flight path). 808-832-3464. Here is the number you might need to call after you've called them. Oahu Boating Manager at 808-587-1973.
My suggestion would be to get a space available seat on your airlines, come out to Honolulu and look for the $15 moorings (urban myth). I don't know of any and if someone tells you about them make certain you get a contact name and phone number from them so you can check it out. Plan on at least a couple days so you can check out all the harbors and moorings on Oahu. Everything is within a 35 mile drive or bus trip from the airport.
Kind regards,
JohnL

dont leave your boat untended in Keehi lagoon. Theft is a big problem there, KoOlena (spelling?) Marina is a better bet but lots of $

Bunny, 'search' is your friend. You'll find much helpful info in other threads here. I too think you're hearing urban myth more than reality, based on my HNL area visits.

In your shoes (and I almost am, being up in St. Pete right now), I would definitely sail the C36 across the Gulf to a Texas port (the Houston area would be my first choice) after which I'd truck to CA where a berthing space is available (much tougher than you might think - I'd probably start by looking at Ventura if cost was a factor). Sailing across the Gulf will be much less costly than trucking from FL to TX and it will be an introduction to what you're signing up for in the CA-HI leg.

Best wishes,

Jack
