OCEAN SAFETY TIPS

  • Aqua/Water shoes are recommended in Hawai‘i due to our rocky coast.
  • Speak with life guards or beach staff before entering the water to learn about water and location conditions.
  • Always read and observe beach signage and condition flags.
  • Swim, snorkel and explore the ocean with a buddy—never alone.
  • Do not touch, walk or stand on rocks, reef or coral.
  • Take a float or wear a life vest.
  • Wana (Vah-nah)—Black spiny sea urchins are on the reef and the ocean floor. Be aware of them and do not step on them. The spines will pierce the skin.
  • Honu—Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles and Hawaiian Monk Seals are protected species. Keep a good distance of more than 12 feet away from them on land and in the water. Do not engage with, feed or touch the turtles or monk seals.
  • Malama Kai—Care for the oceans and shorelines. Haul out what you haul in to the beach and help to keep our world’s oceans free of plastics and debris.

January 2, 2021—Hawai‘i’s Reef Safe Sunscreen Law went into effect. All Sunscreen used in Hawai’i must be free of oxybenzone or octinoxate.  Reef safe sunscreen products are available for purchase at the beach and pool shacks.
