If you think that that the fish tossing experience at Pike Place Market in Seattle is neat then you’ll most definitely be blown away by the Honolulu Fish Auction. Located at the end of Pier 38, this fish auction is indeed one of a kind. It’s the only fish auction that sells fresh tuna in the United States. If you enjoy tuna (or ahi as the locals call it) in your sushi then you’ve probably taken a bite out of ahi that made its way through the Honolulu Fish Auction. Because of its location in the Pacific, the Honolulu Fish Auction is the only fish auction between Tokyo and Maine. Six days a week, fisherman unload their catch in the early morning and the auctions begin at 5:30am. The best part is that you’re invited, if even to just stand in awe at thousands of pounds of quality deep sea catch. Like the vast Pacific Ocean, the Honolulu Fish Auction has a lot to offer.
When heading to to hike the Koko Crater stairs you take a left from Kalanianaole Highway onto Lunalilo Home Road. What if you turn right at Lunalilo Home Road? First of all, you’ll be driving into a residential area that consists of very rich residents. Second, you’ll be en route to a tiny treasure tucked away in Hawaii Kai. China Walls is what the locals call the rocky shoreline diving the Pacific Ocean from Koko Kai Mini Beach Park.
