Share Article

For the first time, a high definition (HD) web camera has been activated on Kauai, focusing on legendary Hanalei Bay on Kauai's North Shore. Viewers will be able to remotely check beach, surf and weather conditions in a high definition format on computers, cell phones and Internet television.

"We decided to establish a web camera to provide a 'live' response to calls and emails from Kauai visitors and friends about ocean conditions. Plus we can share this special place with those who love it but who cannot be here right now," Michael Schmidt.

In response to daily questions from visitors and residents about surf, weather and beach conditions on Kauai's North Shore, Coldwell Banker Bali Hai Realty has set up a new HD web camera focusing on a popular surf break at Hanalei Bay. This is the first time an HD web camera has been established on Kauai according to Ryan Wilmot of Kukui IT. The camera streams live on the Internet from http://www.balihai.com/Blog/kauai-hd-webcam/. An HD web camera provides high quality definition transmission and can be viewed on a variety of electronic devices such as cell phones, computers, ipads and televisions. According to avid waterman and Principal Broker, Michael Schmidt, "We decided to establish a web camera to provide a 'live' response to calls and emails from Kauai visitors and friends about ocean conditions. Plus we can share this special place with those who love it but who cannot be here right now." While there are web cameras located at resorts in nearby Princeville, this is the first time a web camera has been established specifically to show beach conditions at Hanalei Pier, according to Schmidt.

In addition, Bali Hai Realty has established another web camera in Kilauea with views down the Anini Beach coastline towards Bali Hai (also known as Makana). The HD web cameras were activated in November by Kukui IT of Kapa'a, Kauai. Both cameras run continuously.

Coldwell Banker Bali Hai Realty, established in 1978, manages both vacation rental and real estate operations on the island of Kauai. Located in Hanalei, the firm has a number of long-time employees who surf and stand-up paddle in Hanalei Bay.

Coldwell Banker Bali Hai Realty was founded by current President, John Ferry. First known as Bali Hai Realty, the organization has expanded over the years to its present day operation of 20 full time employees. In 2000, Bali Hai Realty became associated with Coldwell Banker, an international real estate brand. Bali Hai is an active participant in many community organizations and has received numerous awards and distinctions. For more information, 808-826-7244, or go to .
