Alerts

A HIGH SURF ADVISORY has been issued by the National Weather Service for the north facing shores of Molokaʻi and Maui until 6:00 pm tonight.

Expect strong breaking waves, shore break and strong currents making swimming difficult and dangerous. Anyone entering the water could face significant injury due to the dangerous hazards this swell will pose. Boaters are asked to be aware of the increased number of surfers likely to be in the water.

A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY is also posted for all waters surrounding Maui County through 6 p.m. North to northeast winds of 25 knots are expected with rough seas up to 15 feet. Inexperienced mariners should avoid navigating in these conditions.
