Kaunakakai Harbor
Ferry System Improvements

  • DCIM100MEDIA

Project Description

Kaunakakai Harbor on Molokai’s southern coast is home to recreational boats, the Department of Boating and Ocean Recreation, Department of Transportation, and is the landing point for the Molokai Princess ferry. Visitors who travel here by boat arrive at this 1930s landmark built by the Army Corps of Engineers.

With age the ferry terminal had become weathered and needed significant work. The public had been requesting an upgrade and the state hired Hawaiian Dredging to fill the order. The harbor includes a wharf that extends 1,900 feet (580 m) into the harbor, the longest in Hawaii.

New utilities were planned throughout. The overhaul included pile driving, foundation work, building, and utilities. An iron waterline and sewer force main piping were installed. Hospitality areas were enlarged and renovated.

A new comfort station was situated close by. Also, a heavy lift area now accommodates barge on/offloading. For residents who pride themselves on self-sustainability and a no-nonsense approach to spending, Hawaiian Dredging was pleased to provide these facility improvements that add to quality of life.
