Aloha, and thank you for visiting the Waikiki Swim Club website.
As of March 26, 2020, Governor David Ige declared that all arrivals to Hawaii will be mandated to go into self-quarantine for 14 days. Violators are subject to fines of up to $5000, along with potential jail time. Interisland travel is subject to the 14-day quarantine.
The North Shore Swim Series, North Shore 5/10K and Waikiki Roughwater swim has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The North Shore Swim Series and Waikiki Swim Club have not sanctioned nor participated in organizing any “fun swims” or training on the North Shore for 2020. Please be advised that you swim at your own risk and we recommend never swimming alone and swimming at lifeguarded beaches.

1st day of influx is usually on the 8th or 9th day after the full moon, lasting 2 or 3 days. Exact arrival timing and magnitude vary month to month.
