Check in:
You will see at the Kawaihae Harbor entrance signs for “Matson” and “Young Brothers.” Take a left turn where it says “Port of Kawaihae Office,” then turn left just before the guard shack. At the end of that road, turn right at next crossroads stop sign and drive thru Gate 11. Head straight out toward the ocean, turn left at Gate 12, and continue toward the comfort station and yellow gate that is between two large boulders. If it is locked, someone will meet there and open it for you. The vessel is homeported at the Makai end of the dock, at slip S-01, but will most often board from the loading area near the front of the docks.
