A small harbor on the south coast of Moloka'i. Approx 13 mi west of Kaunakakai and 3.5 mi east of Laau Point. Lono Harbor was once used for commercial barge traffic, but is no longer in commercial service. It provides well a protected anchorage for a few boats. Anchor to the east of entrance only in 8 to 15 feet. Expect some roll if there is a south swell.

The entrance to the harbor is a narrow channel through the reef and marked only by a private, unlighted range. Channel depth is about 12 feet and shoals quickly to either side.

With a strong southerly swell you may find breakers on the reef and the channel could be too dangerous to attempt. Even without breaking surf in the channel, a strong swell can quickly push a boat onto the reef unless you keep the range perfectly aligned during entry or exit. A night entrance is inadvisable without a chartplotter and depth sounder.

It is possible to tie up at the old warf, but only with good fenderboards and fenders as it is very rough.
There were PortaPotties on shore in October '07.

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.
