Hawaii beachgoers report seeing multiple sharks circling near Waikiki surf spot

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – A shiver of sharks circling Waikiki was captured on video on Wednesday evening.

The incident occurred near Hilton Hawaiian Village at Kaiser’s around 6:30 p.m.

Witnesses estimate there were about five sharks total and believe they were feeding on fish.

Lena Haapala captured the video and said that after seeing the parade of fins, she decided to cancel her surf session.

“We’re gonna go out, and then now we’re just standing here. I’m still like… we’re not going in right now,” Lena Haapala said.

“There are two swimmers out there. And they were trying to warn them to get back in.”

Haapala says that based on the fins, she doesn’t believe they are tiger sharks but could be hammerheads.

No encounters were reported.
