A swimmer at Honolulu's Yokohama Beach Park captured the video shown above of an 8-foot shark. 

The shark was very close to shore -- in fact too close for comfort. 

Honolulu Ocean Safety officials issued an advisory urging people to stay out of the water at Yokohama. 

Another 6-footer was spotted at Nanakuli Beach Park. 

Warning signs are posted at both beaches.
