Ocean Safety Links and Information for Locals and Visitors alike
Swimmers can be overconfident swimming in the ocean when visiting Hawaii. For more info on Hawaiian beach safety (covers all islands), check the new UH website. Oahu's lifeguard page is an excellent source of beach safety and information for Oahu's beaches. For info on Maui Beaches, see the Maui County Ocean Safety website and check their brochure. More beach safety can be found on this Kaua'i site, too.
USA Swimming has an Open Water page.
There are many pools around the islands too in addition to hotel pools. Most Counties (islands) have County Pools open (and free) to the public. For information on these pools check the following links. And be sure to check out our masters clubs during your visit ... we welcome visitors.
