Character mistake: When Maui and Moana set sail after defeating the Kakamora, Maui says they must head east. He turns the boat 90° as he says this. Throughout the next scene the setting sun is to the left of them (providing a beautiful backdrop to their fight), meaning that the boat must be heading north, not east.

Continuity mistake: When Moana is looking at the secret boats, a rock appears on the shore by the prow of one of them out of nowhere.

Plot hole: When Moana first meets Muai, she opens her necklace to tell him he will restore the heart. Muai sees the heart but doesn't get scared until he sees it again on the boat. He should have been scared the first time.

Continuity mistake: After the sea retreats from Moana, a fish gets stranded by a shell and flaps its way back into the water, leaving a noticeable mark in the sand. As Moana approaches the shell in a different angle, the sand around it is undisturbed.

Continuity mistake: During the attack on the boat, it's jerked upwards, a hatch is opened, stays open, and Hei Hei falls in. Seconds later, from a different angle, the hatch is now firmly sealed again.

Continuity mistake: After Moana narrowly escapes drowning, she drags herself ashore next to some debris from a boat, one large piece especially, being by her right hand. After the pig runs away, she's not moved, but the debris around her has changed, and the large piece has disappeared.

Continuity mistake: After the chief stops his mother telling scary stories, pictures drop behind the kids. The one to the left of the one of Maui has three creatures with spiky heads. After the chief is knocked over we see those pictures again, and the one of three creatures has been replaced by one of an island with a cloud above it.

Continuity mistake: On his raft, Maui gives Hei Hei some food. Seconds later in the shot from above as Moana falls towards the raft, the food has disappeared.

Continuity mistake: During the song "Shiny" the light from Tamatoa spins incorrectly at several points during the scene. At times the light reflecting off his treasure rotates with him. At others the light spins on its own while he is not moving.
