There is a free 3 hour parking lot on the corner of Prison and Front Street in Lahaina. This is a good choice for cruises that are 2 hours or less in duration. Do not park in the bus lanes in this lot. For longer cruises, please park in one of the paid lots that can be found off Dickenson and Front Streets. Mobility challenged passengers can be dropped off at Slip #1 in Lahaina Harbor across from the Pioneer Inn while a member of your party checks-in at the PWF Eco Adventures Ocean Store.
For Cruises Departing from Ma'alaea Harbor
For our Ma'alaea cruises, check in 45 minutes prior to departure at our Ocean Store at the Ma'alaea Harbor Shops, which shares a parking lot with Maui Ocean Center.
Our address is: 300 Ma'alaea Road, Wailuku, HI 96793.
Simply park in the free lot in front of Maui Ocean Center and walk towards the Harbor Shops.
If your party includes mobility challenged passengers, please park in the handicapped spots just in front of our Ocean Store, then send a member of your party to check in at the store. You will be given directions on how to drive your mobility challenged friend or family member to the boat.
Please be advised that there is a fee for parking in Ma'alaea boat harbor lots. The cost is 50 cents per hour or $12 for 24 hours.
