Lifeguards Extend Hours on Oahu

After a spike of recent rescues across the island, Oahu lifeguards will expand their hours to address safety concerns.

Lifeguard tower units will still operate from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM, but mobile units will extend from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM.

As tourism numbers continue to climb past pre-pandemic levels, it's no surprise to officials that an increase in rescues and 911 calls were to follow. The city will foot the bill for the additional spending.
