A large northeast swell is slow to subside. It remains well above
normal heights at 10 to 13 feet this morning. Thus, the threat
continues for moderate to strong surges in harbors such as Hilo
and Kahului through today. This is in addition to large breaking
waves and strong currents that may impact harbor entrances and
channels. The northeast swell should start to lower at a quicker
pace beginning tonight.

Boaters using these harbors should exercise caution when mooring
or launching vessels, and when entering or leaving port due to
the potential for surges and large waves breaking near harbor
