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.

Tentatively, beginning September 1st, travelers to Hawaii will be allowed to avoid the 14-day quarantine, if they have a negative COVID-19 test certified within 72 hours of arrival. Otherwise, the quarantine, as described above, remains in effect.

The North Shore Swim Series has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Please refer to Hawaii Department of Health COVID-19 updates, Department of Transportation updates, the Governor's emergency proclamations, and Honolulu Mayor emergency proclamations, as the situation changes.


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.
