Kaunakakai is a small town with a small harbor fisheriy management area, on the south shore of the island of Moloka'i.
It provides a good protected anchorage from all but the worst kona storms.

dynamited out of the solid coral.’ Anchor past the commercial barge dock across from the
dinghy dock/launch ramp being careful not to swing past the green “C5” buoy. The bottom is
sticky mud and you will be in the winds that whip down the channel but the harbor is calm.
Go ashore and check in with the harbor master and pay the small daily anchoring fee.
