Perfect!

Upper Westside Protected Bays

Napili, Kapalua, Honolua
  • Strong trade winds still prevailing but surf has decreased. Still watch for surgy conditions and decreased water clarity around the rocky shoreline. You may be able to find decent shelter and calm waters in Honolua Bay today. Napili Bay is looking relatively calm this morning compared to this past week. Conditions should improve as the day progresses and it warms up.
  • Check out this webcam from Napili Sunset.
  • Surf 1-2ft.
  • Conditions may vary amongst the different bays.
  • Scattered showers before noon. Partly sunny, with a high near 79. Windy, with an east northeast wind 21 to 24 mph, with gusts as high as 34 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.

Ka'anapali Beach

Sheraton Black Rock, Airport-Kahekili Beach
  • Mild winds this morning and small wave action. Watch for small shore break and surgy conditions around the rocky shoreline. Water clarity should be better today than yesterday. I am going to bump it up to an 8 due to the calmer conditions this morning and the possibility of better water clarity.
  • Check out the Whaler Condo webcam.
  • Surf 1-2ft.
  • Turtles as usual. Don’t forget they are protected so give them space but enjoy.
  • Isolated showers before noon. Partly sunny, with a high near 80. Windy, with an east northeast wind 18 to 24 mph, with gusts as high as 31 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

Olowalu Mile Marker 14

Black Rock, Kahekili-Airport Beach
  • Strong winds have been blowing out this spot this week. If you see better conditions closer to where you are staying I would go to those locations. I would only attempt this spot today if your heading south or north anyway. If you see white caps on the water don’t go out. Stay close to shore if you do as the wind can come in strong at anytime.
  • Don’t get your car stuck in the sand and be sure to park completely off the highway!
  • Surf 1-2ft.
  • Turtles! They are protected so give them space but enjoy.
  • ENE wind 11 to 19 kt. Isolated showers before noon. . Waves 1 ft or less.
