Know Before You Go!

Many people drown because water seems calm at first.

This app is the next best thing to asking a local.

A must have for a safe and fun visit to Kauai

There is a lot of misinformation about beach safety on Kauai and many people have died from sheer ignorance or foolishness. This app can help address the first condition. I recommend it highly!
