Alerts

High Surf Advisory is in effect for the east facing shores of Maui and Molokaʻi until 6 p.m. Friday. Surf along east facing shores could reach heights of 6 to 9 feet. Expect strong breaking waves, shore break and dangerous currents that make getting into the water hazardous and swimming difficult.

A Small Craft Advisory is posted for all Maui County windward waters, the ʻAlenuihāhā, Pailolo and Kaiwi channels until 6 a.m. Saturday. Winds of 20 to 25 knots are expected and rough seas from 8 to 15 feet. Inexperienced mariners should avoid navigating in these conditions.
