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 are
located at the NW end of the Lahaina mooring field.
These are the free Lahaina Yacht Club moorings.
It’s not a good idea to anchor because the bottom is mostly coral. Be aware that a
strong current runs along this side of the island caused by the tides and trade winds.
Once moored you can dinghy into the harbor to the dinghy dock located on
the left side of the
marina ¾ of the way inside. Have a long painter because the dinghy dock
is usually packed.
Walk into town to the left and find the Yacht Club on the ocean side of
the street. It is about 3 blocks down, and a little hard to find—the
doorway is just an alleyway.
Check-in with them letting them know which number mooring you are on.
You don’t have to be
a member of a yacht club to use the moorings.

A little rolly and tricky to land at beach.
Good holding ground - big Sand patch for many boats.
