Alerts

High Surf Warning is posted through 6 a.m. Saturday. Surf heights of 20 to 25 feet are expected for the north shores of Maui and Moloka’i. The west side of Moloka’i could see wave heights from 15 to 20 feet. Expect ocean water occasionally sweeping across portions of beaches, very strong breaking waves and strong longshore and rip currents. Breaking waves may occasionally impact harbors making navigating the harbor channel difficult. Large breaking surf, significant shore break and dangerous currents will make entering the water very hazardous. Boaters should be aware of an increased number of surfers in the water.

Small Craft Advisory is posted for all island waters through 6 p.m. Saturday. Northeast winds up to 30 knots are expected along with rough seas of 10 to 15 feet. Inexperienced mariners should avoid navigating in these conditions.
