- As visitors to Moloka'i, please be respectful


Respect your Host

For most of us we are visitors to the island of Molokai. This island has a special place in our history and we appreciate our hosts welcoming us each year. To keep the Aloha Spirit alive, as guests to this special island, please keep the following in mind.

No Excessive Fishing from Escort Boats

The Molokai Community has expressed concern over the amount of fish caught in the waters off Molokai by race escort boats. We are aware that you are not in control over the actions of your escort boats. Please discuss this matter with Boat Captains directly and ask that they be courteous to the local fisherman. Take only what you can eat and please be respectful to the concerns of our Molokai hosts.
