IMPORTANT! Hawaii Ocean Safety Tips!

Jump to last reply

Hawaii has the highest drowning rate in the nation. Sadly, many of these casualities are visitors. So here are five important tips to help keep you and your family safe here in Hawaii:

1. Always study the currents and waves before you go out in the water. Notice where the rip currents are, where the waves are breaking, and where any submerged rocks are.

2. The waves in Hawaii vary in size. Several sets of 2-foot waves can be followed by a sudden set of 6-foot waves. So don't assume all waves are alike.

3. Never turn your back to the ocean. When anywhere near the water, always watch the ocean to look for approaching waves. (A big wave can quickly rush up the beach, grab you and pull you in.)

4. Don't assume the waves are safe just because you see some Hawaiian kids body-surfing or swimming in them. Remember, they were raised on these waves. You weren't.

5. When in doubt, don't go out.

Have a safe vacation!
