About Maui Mooring Services

MAUI MOORING SERVICE utilizes the state-of-the-art MANTA RAY MOORING SYSTEM. MANTA RAY anchors are driven in, not augered or torqued. NO HOLES ARE DUG, thus there is no disturbance or displacement of soil or sediment during installation.

MAUI MOORING SERVICE has been installing the MANTA RAY ANCHORING SYSTEM since 1995. We are experts at what we do - always protecting the fragile marine environment. We are available to install other type(s) of anchoring system- including cement blocks upon special request as per permitted drawing.

MAUI MOORING SERVICE has installed moorings in and around Maui including installs at Molokini Crater, Ma'alaea Harbor, Sugar Beach, Lahaina Harbor, Ka'anapali and Mala Wharf.

DISCLAIMER: MAUI MOORING SERVICE is not responsible for procurement of any permits as required by government authorities. It is the responsibility of the buyer to acquire and maintain any necessary permits.
