Ocean Safety officials are urging the public to stay out of the water at Kualoa Beach Park.
They're telling people to get out because a dead whale is attracting sharks.
Warning signs were posted Friday afternoon.
The carcass was towed across the bay to the other side near Heeia Kea, so it's no longer in the vicinity.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration officials say it was an adult sperm whale.
The carcass got stranded on the reef about 300 yards off shore from Kualoa Beach.
Several sharks were seen feeding on the carcass.
A salvage vessel towed it across the bay to Heeia.
Crews plan to anchor the what at Heeia Friday night. They're going to cut it up Saturday and remove it by land.
On Saturday, Heeia Kea will be closed to the public.
Each year, approximately one to four sperm whale carcasses drift ashore in Hawaii, particularly in May and August.
The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA Fisheries) are asking boaters to notify authorities immediately if they see a dead whale floating at sea.
To report a floating whale or any marine mammal incident, call USCG channel 16 or the NOAA marine mammal hotline at: 1-888-256-9840.
The first runner to cross the finish line of the 2013 Honolulu Marathon was Gilbert Chepkwony who finished in 2:18:47.

It's the holiday season and that means parties, fun and for some, drinking. However, police are on the lookout for drunk drivers. One family offered a reminder on Sunday, why it's important to not drink and drive.
