Growing up at the beach as youth and being a Veteran Lifeguard of over 15 years, I have seen my share of Ocean related injuries. From small lacerations, sea urchin puncture wounds and jellyfish stings to shark bite amputations, surfboard fin injuries, spinal injuries and double drownings.
The Ocean is Inherently Dangerous. Please use Extreme Caution in and around the Ocean.
A great website for Ocean Safety information is: http:/kauaiexplorer.com
I highly recommend that you swim at a Guarded Beach. Check with the Lifeguards if you are unsure of the particular hazards of that beach.
