The Sacred Pools is an amazing sight. There is something all boaters should be aware of before
entering the 7 Sacred pools. At the entrance to the Pools from the national park you need to be
aware that, AT HIGH-TIDE STAY OUT OF THE LOWER POOLS! There have been sightings at high tide of
sharks entering the lower pools. But do not let this information from you swimming in the upper
pools. And you should go up and jump off the cliffs on pools 4-6, and there is a bridge above pool
#6 that is a 75ft drop. I have seen people do it but it looks kind of skechy. It is a lot of fun.
Next time I go to Hawaii I am bringing my boat. -Jake
