Maui Hawaii Surf Cam

Kahului Harbor Surf Cam in Kahului, HI

This webcam shows the Kahului harbor looking from the southwest towards the north west side of the harbor. The harbor is a popular surf spot during the winter, especially on large N-NNE swells, and is best only for experienced to expert level surfers due to the steep drops, pitching barrels, and shallow reef. Not to mention frequent shark sightings, contaminated water, man-o-war and more. We strongly recommend that if you are visiting or still a beginner that you check out the Cove at Kalama Park in Kihei, or Lahaina Breakwall and take some lessons, and keep in mind that we are in the middle of the pacific with open ocean swells that hammer our shores and strong and unpredictable currents. There are stories in the news every week about visitors getting hurt and even drowning because they underestimate the power of the ocean here, or because it looks calm, but they don’t realize how quickly condition can change. Check the Maui Surf Blog for daily surf reports and tips, and I believe the author, GP, offers lessons.

Kahului harbor is also very popular for fishing, outrigger canoe paddling, windsurfing, wing boarding, foil boarding, paddle boarding, and other sports. You can watch the cruise ships and the Matson/Young Brothers barges and container ships pulling into the harbor, docking, and heading back out to sea.

Also please NEVER step on reef, make sure you only use reef safe sunscreen (meaning it contains no chemicals, and is mineral based – the best ones usually only contain zinc oxide), and remember that green sea turtles (Honu) are protected in Hawaii. Please always stay 10 feet away, and never touch or disturb them.

From the DLNR:  “In Hawai‘i, sea turtles are protected by the Hawai‘i Revised Statutes (Chapter 195D) and Hawai‘i Administrative Rules (13-124). Although federal and state wildlife conservation laws differ in some respects, all prohibit actions that can harm, injure, kill, or otherwise disturb sea turtles without a permit. Feeding or touching turtles in any way is considered a disturbance and therefore illegal.” More helpful info from the DLNR Here.
