Security Zone for Kahului Harbor Back to 100 Yards

KAHULUI, Maui (KHNL) -- The Coast Guard will enforce only the 100-yard security zone in Kahului Harbor for transits of the Hawaii Superferry.

Surfers, swimmers and boaters may once again use Kahului Harbor at any time as long as they don't go within 100 yards of the Alakai when the vessel is in the harbor.

A temporary security zone that included the entire port was adopted on December 13 to ensure public safety during the transit of the Alakai.

A new temporary security zone could be activated when the current one expires on January 31, 2008.

A long-standing 100-yard moving security zone remains in effect.
