Ocean Safety Tips

Beach & Water Safety

  • Learn to swim
  • Swim near a lifeguard
  • Never swim alone
  • Don’t rely on your flotation device, such as a raft or body board; you may lose it
  • Never attempt to swim when you have been drinking alcohol
  • Look for the designated swim area marked by the black-and-white checkered flag and sign. If unsure, ask the nearest lifeguard.
  • Swim parallel to shore if you wish to swim long distances
