Honolulu Harbor is the principal
seaport of Honolulu and the State
of Hawaiʻi and is also known as
Kulolia and Ke Awa O Kou. It
began as a small fishing village
and It is from Honolulu Harbor,
that the City & County of Honolulu
was developed and urbanized
over the course of modern history.

Honolulu Harbor has beautiful
views of the Ko'olau Mountains
mixed with modern glass high
rises in the financial district.

Honolulu Harbor handles over 11
million tons of cargo annually,
critical to the economy of Hawaii,
everything from oil, to toilet paper
to 85% of all the food Hawaii
consumes.

Archaeological surveys show that
the area around Honolulu Harbor
was bustling with human activity
prior to 1100. In 1850,
Kamehameha III declared
Honolulu to be the official capital
of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi. With
the proclamation came a series of
investments to further develop
the harbor to accommodate more
vessels. Honolulu Harbor quickly
became the chief port of call for
the trans-Pacific sandalwood, fur
and whaling industries. Foreign
vessels that docked at Honolulu
Harbor poured vast amounts of
wealth into the kingdom's coffers
and provided for the well-being of
native Hawaiians.
