When you come to Molde by cruiseship
When you come to Molde by cruiseship it will be very hard to do any of the sights closeby on your own, so it will be the best to take one of the organized tours of the ship.
Kvernes and 'Atlanterhavsveien' are much too far away to be done on your own, roads are quite slow in Norway and traficjams are also not unusual in Molde according to my experience and while your ship will wait for the official tourbus to be back in time they will never care about you in a privately hired taxi.

Hurtigruten, also known as the Norwegian coastal express, has more than 100 years of service between Bergen and Kirkenes along the west coast of Norway. The route is recognised as one of Europe's biggest attractions and has been internationally acknowledged as the "world's most beautiful sea voyage". The fleet consists of 11 ships, here represented by the vessel "Kong Harald", seen docking at Molde harbour. Both northbound and southbound ships dock at my hometown during daylight, which makes it very convenient for photographing them.
The Speed Passenger Boat to Vestnes
The commuter ferry to/from Vestnes from/to Molde. During summer this boat also runs to and from Ålesund.
The ferry MF Edoy (to/from Sekken island) is barely vible behind the boat on the left side.
The Bus Station
In typical Norwegian manner, the bus station is an open square, with no sheltered waiting facilities...ok, there are, but not NEAR the buses where you need them.
