List of rivers of Hawaii

(Redirected from List of Hawaii rivers)

This is a list of rivers and streams in Hawaii (U.S. state).

Modern maps show some 360 streams in the Hawaiian Islands. However, because of the small size of the islands in comparison with continental areas, there are very few navigable rivers anywhere in the islands.

The following list is sorted by name. Click on the double triangles at the top of the "Island" column to sort the table by island.
