Box Jellyfish Days


Box jellyfish arrive in Waikiki approximately 8-11 days after the full moon. In addition to Waikiki, the jellyfish may show up at Hanauma Bay, Waimea Bay and occasionally the Waianae Coast and Windward Coast (Kailua).
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.
