LAST UPDATED: 2:39 p.m. HST, Apr 3, 2012

Haena and Kee beaches on Kauai's North Shore are closed to swimming today due to high surf conditions. Ocean Safety officials also report that a shark was sighted in waters off Haena Beach at about 9:30 a.m.

Kauai lifeguards will remain at the Haena and Kee beach towers throughout the day to notify beachgoers of the closure. The Kee Beach tower will close at 4 p.m. today due to the Kalihiwai Bridge closure this evening. 

Both beaches will reopen Wednesday if conditions are deemed safe for swimming, Kauai officials said.
