Beaches on Kauai’s north shore closed after sharks kill dolphin

A shark sighting Wednesday morning prompted Ocean Safety officials to close beaches for swimming from Ha‘ena to Ke‘e on Kauai’s north shore.

A man surfing in the waters off Ke‘e said he saw two sharks attack and kill a dolphin. He later brought the dolphin carcass ashore and notified lifeguards of the incident around 9:30 a.m.

Ocean Safety officials closed beaches from Ha‘ena to Ke‘e for swimming as a safety precaution. Warning signs have been posted.

Lifeguards will reassess the area Thursday morning.
