North Molokai island, between Kahiu point and Kukaiwaa point, there are two small islands (Mokapu and Okala), really just giant
rocks, eastern-most Mokapu and next to the black sand beach Okala.
Leave the islands on the port side and anchor in 25 feet, black sand
bottom. You will be at the bottom of a long valley with great cliffs on
both sides. You will see the Kalaupapa peninsula to the east.

This anchorage is supposed to be vile and generally lived up to its
reputation. It does, however, make a nice stop between Honolua Bay
and Oahu, but the wind blew harder in
the anchorage than out at sea.

Wonderfull anchorage, great snorkeling. Get there early before the tour catamarans arrive and be careful not to anchor
on the coral; big fines if you damage. The bay has two bights. You can only anchor in the eastern. This is a great snorkeling spot
( by mid-morning you will ...
Manele Harbor, located on Lanai’s south shore, has the only public boat
harbor on the island. Visitors who take the ferry from Lahaina on
neighboring Maui arrive here (five times daily), as well as a few

There is a marina here but you can forget it. It is always super packed and all but impossible to
get a “slip”. Just go past the marina and harbor entrance and find an open mooring buoy with
LYC painted on it. In 2010, these buoys were white and there were 7 of them. Most of them ...

Good holding ground - big Sand patch for many boats.

You can't handle shorebreak
Don't like people paddle around your boat.
