By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:16 a.m. HST, Feb 09, 2014

A 10-foot tiger shark was spotted at Kaimana Beach in Waikiki around 11:15 a.m. Saturday, but the area remains open to beachgoers. 

Ocean Safety officials said warning signs were posted after the shark was seen about 200 yards off of the flag pole at Kaimana, which is on the Diamond Head side of Waikiki Beach.

No other information was immediately available.

Not sure why this is news and this Shane character seems to be either completely oblivious as to the hammerheads that school every day off the Royal Hawaiian, or, is simply attempting to scare the public by selective shark reporting in order to justify her paid position.

Excellent Point. Should be closed to spearfishing anyway, from the Natatorium ALL THE WAY to the Lighthouse. Let the little fishes swim with the tourists. Someday. Can you say amen?

I think writer meant "wind sock" as there is no flag pole at Kaimana Beach. I was at the wind sock at 10:15am. I make it a point to not go beyond that.

It was my fault. Swimming the channel with my cut and badly bleeding foot! Also had tuna fish sandwich for lunch.
