Alerts

The High Surf Advisory has been extended for the east facing shores of Maui and Molokaʻi until 6 p.m. Monday. Surf along east facing shores could reach heights of 5 to 8 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 waters until Monday at 6 p.m. Winds of 20 to 25 knots are expected and rough seas up to 14 feet. Inexperienced mariners should avoid navigating in these conditions.
