South Shore Rescues Continue

July 18, 2022

Honolulu Ocean Safety continued to remain busy as the surf remained up on the south shore, though slightly smaller. Even if the swell continues to drop Honolulu Ocean Safety expects the crowds in the lineup to stay up. So we ask that those who are inexperienced to please continue to sideline themselves until it’s safer to paddle out. Ocean Safety lifeguards made an estimated 450 rescues in Waikīkī and and 1,725 preventive measures with another roughly 670 preventative actions in the Ala Moana area with zero rescues.
