Be very careful when you are in and near the water and use common sense. Hazardous ocean conditions such as high surf, strong currents, sudden drop-offs and sharp, slippery coral can cause dangerous swimming conditions. And, please, swim only at beaches with a life guard. It's best to check in with the life guard before going into the ocean. Kauai's life guards have experience and training to help Kauai's beach goers be safe while having fun at the beach.
