Moving to Hawaii is a dream come true for many people, and the team at M. Dyer & Sons in Pearl City is passionate about helping people enjoy a stress-free relocation. As a locally owned and operated moving company, they take pride in helping new residents adapt to an island lifestyle. Part of this is learning how to be safe around Hawaii's beautiful but sometimes dangerous beaches.
Whether you've recently moved to Hawaii or are just visiting for a week, check out these three tips from the movers at M. Dyer & Sons so you can stay safe while enjoying the beach:
- Bring Friends: If you plan on swimming, go in the water with a friend and make sure someone on the shore knows where you are and when you plan on returning. While this might seem like overkill, unlike beaches in the continental U.S., it’s not uncommon for a popular swimming and surfing location in Hawaii to experience a random seven-foot wave during otherwise lovely weather.
- Slather on the Sunscreen & Drink Up: The sun is almost always shining in Hawaii, and while residents like the M. Dyer & Sons moving pros love it, the strong sun also means it's easier to get dehydrated and sunburned. Wear a high SPF sunscreen every day and make sure you have water with you at all times, especially if you’re hitting the beach!
- Pay Attention & Ask Questions: When you’re in the water, pay attention to the ocean bottom! Sharp coral, sea urchins, and other wildlife are plentiful in Hawaii and it's important to be aware of where you're stepping. Another great way to stay safe and informed is to simply ask an on-duty lifeguard about the current ocean conditions. If they say it’s rough and choppy, believe them!
