Institute Arrival Information:

There is no parking at HIMB. Visitor parking is currently located at the Windward Mall in Kane‘ohe (see attached map) with shuttle van service to Lilipuna Pier at Moku o Lo‘e. After parking at the Windward Mall, you must call the shuttle van at (808) 218-2014 to arrange a pick-up. Carpooling is strongly encouraged. For larger groups, it is suggested that a driver drops off passengers at the Lilipuna Pier and then parks at the mall as the shuttle van holds only 6 passengers.

The shuttle is a white minivan with a green University of Hawai‘i decal on the doors. PLEASE BE SURE YOU LOOK OUT FOR AN OFFICIAL UNIVERSITYOF HAWAI‘I VEHICLE THAT HAS THE GREEN LOGO ON IT. For your safety, do not get in to any other vehicle that does not have a UH logo.

The ride from the Windward Mall is about 5 minutes. The shuttle van will drop you off at the end of Lilipuna Pier, where the shuttle boat that operates continuously will pick you up. It is a short 1-minute boat ride to the island.
