Ala Wai Yacht Harbor is the largest
yacht harbor in the state of Hawaii.
Located at the mouth of the Ala
Wai Canal, between world famous
Waikiki and Honolulu, the Capital
of Hawai'i.

The TransPac sailing race begins in
California and ends at Diamond
Head Point with the harbor being
the home port, an event that takes
place every two years. It is one of
the world's longest-running ocean

Many Waikiki hotels are in the
area, but the Waikiki Prince Hotel
and the Hilton Hawaiian Village are
essentially adjacent to the
property, and the Ilikai Hotel is
built on harbor land, paying rent
into the boating special fund.

The harbor is home to the Waikiki
Yacht Club and the Hawaii Yacht
Club, which host junior sailing
clubs, weekly sailing races, and
fishing tournaments. Boats from
around the world find shelter in
state harbor berths, yacht club
berths, and fuel dock berths.  The
Ala Wai Harbor can accommodate
vessels up to 85 feet in length.

Ala Wai Yacht Harbor has been the
background for many movies and
TV shows such as Hawaii Five-O,
Lost and Magnum P.I., and was the
scene of the Minnow leaving port
for a three hour tour on Gilligan's
Island. Elvis Presley filmed scenes 
for his second Hawaii film "Girls,
Girls, Girls" at Ala Wai Yacht Harbor.
